Coffee and Jesus

Why is it so difficult to remain consistent?  I love reading blogs and have gathered so much form those that I follow. Last year I started this blog with the intention of blogging regularly, but ended the year with only 8 posts. The posts were all read and I received decent feedback, so I know it’s something that I can do. Maybe I just need to spend less time thinking about it, and just post shorter, more random entries. 

I started last year off great with early morning devotions everyday and became habitual with it. As the year progressed I got lazier, busier, more complacent and eventually back to waking up in the morning with only a few minutes to get ready for work and out the door. Over these last two weeks, although I’ve been sleeping in, I’ve had the time to start my day with coffee and Jesus. I realized how much I missed those quite moments in the morning to reflect, pray and dive into the scriptures.  It really is the best way to start my day. 

As with the turn of every new year it’s once again a natural time for reflection and goal setting. Despite falling back into old habits with my morning routine, I still feel that I ended 2014 closer to God than I was in 2013.  My goals for this year are pretty much the same as last year. Establish consistent and meaningful morning devotions again, as opposed to fitting it in at the last minute of the day. Make better efforts to consistently share my thoughts via this blog.  I also want to be more intentional with my relationships this year. 

I’ve already set monthly reminders to review my goals each month through the year.  I believe constant review and honest reflection throughout the year, will help to ensure success with my goals.

So here’s to a new year, and more coffee with Jesus!
