Now I have to give up coffee, Lord,
my one cup in the morning,
I’ve enjoyed it so much
along with my devotions, Lord.
It was my one indulgence
besides chocolate.
It makes me understand drug users
who keep going back to their habit
even if it kills them
because it makes them feel like themselves
or as they want to feel.
That’s me and coffee, Lord.
It picks me up.
Then I get so much more done in a day.
Without it I’m just a limp rag.
Lord, give me strength!

Psalm 46:1
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

1 Corinthians 10:31
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.
