Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. - Psalm 34:8 (NIV)

I love to sip a cup of coffee while I read The Upper Room and spend time in quiet prayer. As I reflect on this daily ritual, I realize that since I’ve been having “coffee breaks” with God, my devotional time has become more special to me. I am truly...

Today's Prayer
Dear Lord, thank you for helping us to know your goodness and love. We pray as Jesus taught us, saying, “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matt. 6:9-13, kjv).

Loving the Insights

"I lead a small group of about 12 women, and we were looking for a great Advent study. I had used While We Wait years ago and remembered how beautifully written it was.

I love focusing on the women in the genealogy in Matthew and our church’s Advent sermon series include the songs of Elizabeth, Mary, and Zechariah. So this study seemed just perfect for our 2019 Advent study.

Everyone is enjoying it so much and loving the insights that Mary Lou Redding offers for each character in her study. While We Wait has been a great study for us!"
