I was out of filters so I got out the Keurig; readied the water, the coffee, and was waiting for the water to pass through the k-cup. For that short moment of waiting I wondered how the water felt about the situation. The water, which is fine all by itself, is heated up, put under pressure and passed through another substance that transforms it into something completely different. Is the water okay with this process, or is it offended?
I have gone through, am going through, and will continue the process in the future- situations that change me. Each situation ordained by God to test me, and change me for His purpose and for use as an instrument for His Kingdom. Oftentimes I see with limited perspective and hate the situation, seeing it as an incident rather than His formula.
I enjoy coffee. Hot water? Not so much. For me the process of making coffee, using hot water is worth the effort and sacrificing the natural state of the water.
I pray that when I pass through situations that the filter brings me out pleasing to God.
Psalm 119:71 & 1 Peter 1:6-7 – may I understand He is trying to finish my brewing.
