Thoughts Over Morning Coffee by Martha L Shaw On Peace

April 17, 2015

Our prayer NEVER needs to be “give me peace” because the peace that passes understanding is WITHIN us. Our prayer needs to focus on putting out the trash that blocks us from experiencing it! – from Thoughts Over Morning Coffee by Martha L Shaw

Why do we look down on the weak? Taking ownership of my weakness is one of the greatest gifts I can give myself since the admission opens the door to His strength in me! – from Thoughts Over Morning Coffee byMartha L Shaw

A New Outlook?

Some of us live such ordinary lives while others soar to the extraordinary . . . is the difference truly our circumstances, or could it be our focus? – from THOUGHTS OVER MORNING COFFEE by Martha L Shaw​morning coffee


JESUS AND ICE CREAM

January 6, 2015

Running errands with a friend once, we took a wrong turn, or so we thought, and discovered a combination second hand bookstore and homemade ice cream place! I think following the Lord’s path is often like that. We think ahead and are sure of the destination, freak out when we think we’re lost . . . then He leads us straight to the most AWESOME treat EVER! – From Thoughts Over Morning Coffee by Martha L Shaw

Truly loving is the only thing, I think, that can really break the human heart. Perhaps, though, THAT is a gift since the Lord, if we let Him. will take all those imperfect fragments and with a kiss will create a new heart within us – His own! – from Thoughts Over Morning Coffee by Martha L Shaw


I’ve NEVER Been That Popular, But . . .

December 11, 2014

“The only route in life to true joy, as I view it, is following Christ. It may not make you popular, but do you place more value in popularity over the joy of Christ?”

Joshua 24:15 (KJV)

“15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. ” – From Thoughts Over Morning Coffee Martha L Shaw

Defining Surrender

December 9, 2014

One of the definitions of surrender is “to deliver up.” Note, this does not present, to me anyway, an image of falling down. I see a clear correlation here with our death to self and rise with Christ. – From Thoughts Over Morning Coffee Martha L Shaw

Locust and Wild Honey Diet!

December 8, 2014

An oddly dressed dude in the outskirts of town, a on peculiar diet, preaching an unexpected and surprising message . . .  THESE DAYS such an event would go viral on Twitter but back in Jesus day, would you think this would draw much attention?  No newspaper, cell phone, internet . . . but John the Baptist drew crowds by crying in the wilderness and while existing on bugs and wild honey . . . and think of the bee stings . . . and countless folks heard him speak of the one coming after him.  That being said, don’t you think solving your challenges and mine is easy for God if we let Him? . – From Thoughts Over Morning Coffee Martha L Shaw
