You’ve Got Someone On Your Side. Always.

Coffee with Jesus by Holley Gerth

Dear You,

If we really were having coffee today, I wouldn’t be the only one at the table with you. Jesus would be right there too. It’s easy to think of him as being with us in church or the moments of life that seem sacred. But ever since the manger, he has been coming into our ordinary lives in extraordinary ways.

Even more remarkable than that, Jesus calls you his friend. You are not just a servant. You are not just someone who wants to obey him. Instead he desires a relationship with you.

Think about the friends in your life. What’s true about them?

They love you.

They accept you as you are today.

They cheer you on into all you’re becoming.

That’s how Jesus feels about you. He wants to connect with you—to have conversations about your day, to hear your heart, and to share his as well.

I don’t know when we’ll get to “have coffee” together. But I do know this: there’s Someone who wants to have coffee with you today and every day for the rest of your life. Can you hear his invitation calling to your heart? Can you picture him sitting down at the table with you? He’s there with you right now.

Thank you for “having coffee” with me in this space too. I’ve loved the time we’ve spent together. Now go share your life with the One who has always been there—who will always be there.

For coffee.

For when you cry.

For when you’re celebrating.

He’ll tell you every single day how much you’re loved. He’ll remind you of who you truly are. He’ll bring you what your heart needs, no matter what is happening in your life.

Jesus is the friend you’ve always wanted who has been there all along.

XOXO
