I've lost count of the number of days we've been on lockdown. I doubt that it will be anywhere near normal for a long time yet. I'm trying not to complain, because there have been so many benefits to this time. But I can't wait to see friends and family again. I miss church, mostly.… Continue reading Why so difficult?
A lot of people will be familiar with Bryan Adams' song, "Everything I Do", but have you heard Phillipa Hanna's version? Here it is: https://youtu.be/iqr4p4k7GrU Bryan Adams' song used to be a favourite of mine, but now makes me sad because it was sung at my wedding to my first husband. Anyway, when I was… Continue reading Everything I Do I Do It For Him
Why do we romanticise love in 1 Corinthians 13? It has become traditional to have this chapter as the main reading at weddings - I know I did. Today's verse of the day, on Bible Gateway, is, 'Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become… Continue reading The true meaning of Love
This morning when I opened Bible Gateway I noticed that their Word for Today is, 'For the word of the Lord is right, And all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.' (Psalm 33:4-5 NKJV). I never used to, but I've found a love… Continue reading Goodness
Welcome to Morning Coffee With Abba! This blog is my platform for writing about my faith, and recovery from mental health disorders. My hope is that something that I write connects you with Jesus. But, even if it doesn't I hope that you enjoy reading my musings. This year my word for focusing on is… Continue reading FREEDOM
Wow! My blog has got rather dusty! I didn't realise quite how long it had been since I last wrote on here. I opened my Bible at 1 Samuel and then Jeremiah before arriving at Romans. I started reading the section in Romans 12 about love. I thought I would write on that, but then… Continue reading Doxology
Yesterday I was reading Bible Gateway. I prefer to read the Bible on the go, rather than not at all. Or at least, if I'm very busy, I'd rather do it on the go, rather than not at all. I know that's not ideal. Of course, I prefer to carve out time and sit and… Continue reading Living and Loving
When I started this blog (see: What’s the point?) I intended to use it as a way of documenting my times with Abba (this word means 'daddy' which is the term I choose to use for my Father in Heaven - whom others might refer to as simply God or Father God). Over time I've also… Continue reading Hope
As far as Psalms go, this one is not too long. At 40 verses, though, it took me several minutes to read. I'll insert the Psalm here; before writing about it further: Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; 2 for like the grass they will soon… Continue reading Psalm 37
I've missed writing, but I've struggled to get back into it. My mental health hasn't been great recently, but, having said that I've actually taken some positive steps in my recovery. Of course, if I stop to look back on the past month, it's been filled with lots of blessings. One of the biggest blessings… Continue reading I’m Back!
