Wednesday in the Word-Tea time with God

I love hot tea. Do you? I like all kinds of flavored teas and I can't say that any one in particular is my favorite but for some reason I've always found hot tea to be soothing to the soul.



So pull up a chair and have a cup of tea with me today and let's share a devotional from one my favorite devotional books called "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young.


In a world of unrelenting changes, I am the One who never changes. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. (Revelation 22:13)



Find in Me the stability for which you have yearned. I created a beautifully ordered world; one that reflects My perfection.


Now, however, the world is under bondage of sin and evil. Every person on the planet faces gasping jaws of uncertainty.


The only antidote to this poisonous threat is drawing closer to Me.


In My presence you can face uncertainty in perfect Peace. (John 16:33)



It is so good to know within the depths of my soul that no matter what happens in this world that I can have perfect peace through Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. And oh I do need thee every hour....every minute, every second and every breath I take.

Just as a cup of hot tea can soothe my soul so does the Word of the Living God.
Have a cup of hot tea today my friend and allow Him to soothe your soul.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. Thanks Connie. I used to NOT like hot tea either but now I love it! I think getting older has got me to liking lots of things! LOL!

    1. Thanks Heather. That old vase is a tin can that I covered with paper but has served me well. Maybe one day we can have a cup of tea together!

  3. Very comforting post because it is certainly true that if it isn't the Middle East, it's Texas or Baltimore or right next door... Very pretty vase and flowers...I'm sipping peppermint tea today.

  5. I read Jesus Calling often because I feel His presence so very close. I wonder if it is one of the most popular devotionals? I am so blessed by it. I discovered Lady Earl Grey for caffeine and my favorite herbal is chamomile just before bed!

    Love this post!
    Hugs,

    1. Lifeway told me recently that Jesus Calling has been their absolute best seller! I had a lady tell me today Mary that she drinks a cup of Sleepy time tea every night before bed. Thanks for stopping by,

  8. I have always loved tea, Cindy, and I love your photos here! If you are able to get Twinings Jasmine and Earl Grey (the leaves, not in the tea bags), and you have a tea strainer, if you can make yourself a cup of these two teas together, this is very nice! Please be advised though the Earl Grey does contain caffeine, so you may wish to drink it in the morning or early afternoon. I have had Earl Grey and Jasmine many times and they go great together! :)

  9. This was so beautiful and I needed to read this today. I just found out that my breast surgeon who I have been following with for two years (cyst issues) Has pancreatic cancer that has spread to her liver. I have been devastated and so torn up inside for her and her family. Please include her in your prayers. Her name is Teresa Flippo. She is an amazing Doctor and is only in her mid 50's. I can't stop thinking about her each and every second and praying so hard. She can use all the prayers you have. xoxo

  10. Oh my Debbie. I am so sorry to hear this news. I am praying right now and asking God to give her strength. This is devastating. We lost my sweet motherinlove to a liver disease this past Oct. and it is so hard. Only Hope we have is in Christ. Thinking of you today and asking our Lord to keep you in His tender care.

  11. Hi Cindy, this is a special post and thank you for sharing your time and soothing tea. Our Lord really does give peace for the soul and without him we would be lost. I love vanilla chai tea too and drink it just about everyday. Love your pretty pics to go with your post.
    Hugs and Blessings, CM

  15. God's Word and His love for us all comforts me beyond expression! You know I am a cancer survivor and without Him, I would have, could not have ever survived. Aren't we so blessed, so fortunate, so grateful to know Him and that He gives us just what we need!
    Warm Hugs,
