If we were on a coffee date, I’d walk in with this book in my hand. It’s called “No Wonder They Call Him Savior,” and if you’re a human, you’re gonna wanna read it. Here you can have my copy. I just finished it last weekend and it's incredible.
If we were on a coffee date, I’d regret giving it to you but not enough to take it back. It’s that good. I’d be ordering one on Amazon real quick.
If we were on a coffee date, the book would be so earmarked and underlined that you'd know right away which parts were catching my heart. haha. Or blowing my mind.
If we were on a coffee date, I'd ask what you wanted to drink and then order my quad shot latte and then pour my own milk in (almond milk + bulletproof collagen powder). Or maybe I’d just get a grande Americano. It really depends on if it’s 90 degrees or cold and rainy. Who am I kidding, this is Texas. It’s probably been both in the last 30 minutes.
If we were on a coffee date, and you are a mom, I’d ask you how you’re doing deep in the mom caves of your soul. We have those you know. We don’t realize they accumulate so much, until one day or week or moment we start to see the flood waters seeping through the cracks of the closed doors.
It’s the cave where we quickly toss the things we don’t have the time or capacity to handle right then and there. It’s not like we’re burying it or hiding it. We’re not even really ashamed or scared of it. We just don’t have time. Right now. We’ll find it in a minute, of course. Just. Not. Right. Now.
If we were on a coffee date, and you’re not a mom, I’d probably still bring up the caves. Because I now that I’m saying it out loud, I realize it’s really a Western Culture thing. I think. We tend not to stop, because stopping isn’t progress. Or so we’ve believed. We don’t have time or space for an interruption. Which is kind of silly because they happen to us everyday.
Isn’t that silly? We plan for everything else but the one thing that we know will most likely happen to us today. Interruption. A break in thought, motion or task. A slowing down.
If we were on a coffee date, I’d tell you that’s what this book is teaching me about Jesus. His whole life was one big interruption.
He was interrupted in union with His Father and the Spirit. He had to actually break fellowship for the first time in all of God-Head history, so He could interrupt the death and chaos that was picking away at humanity. Let me rephrase: He CHOSE to…
If we were on a coffee date, I’d be crying. But everyone knows “if you and Jules cry together, you’re basically BFF’s.” - Tyson
If we were on a coffee date, I’d tell you I’m sinking to new depths with Jesus on the same elementary content. Except it’s not elementary anymore. It’s like reading my girls’ kids Bible with Greek glasses on. Everything is connecting and revealing in ways I’ve never seen.
And it’s pretty fun.
If we were on a coffee date, the baby would probably start rustling right now so I’d excuse myself to go feed him. Or I’d throw the nursing cover on and whip out the boob. I guess it depends on what kind of coffee I started with ;)
