How to make tea

I've been drinking a lot of tea lately.

I think it's my comfort thing...that and chocolate.

So for a little comfort, I'm going to teach you how to make tea:

1-Put water into cup.

2-Heat in microwave (if you don't have a kettle).

3-Add tea bag.

4-Let steep until desired color/taste is achieved.

Whala. Easy peasy.

Today I needed an easy reminder of God's faithfulness and active work in my life. So here it is:

1-Take yourself (the water).

2-Put yourself in an environment that grows and stretches and challenges you (the microwave).

3-Remind yourself that God is always present (the tea bag).

4-Let God transform every area of your life, which will probably take forever (let Him steep).

Whala...Definitely not as easy as it sounds.

So there we have it. My reminder that God is present, that He is working, that He's actively releasing His goodness with His timing in my life (even though I don't always see it). He will continue to steep in my life until He thinks His work is done (so He'll never stop steeping...).

I think sometimes I make connecting with God too complicated and I just need a simple I'm going to drink this one up, because seriously, this tea is delicious.
