Starbucks Coffee Shop Ministry

Rocky_soil1

My church went to the local children's hospital to pass out gift bags of necessities for those who find themselves in a difficult place.  The gift bags were only secondary in importance compared to the love that was shared in the gesture and prayers given.  Each left with wonderful stories to tell…

I sat in the emergency room briefly and then was off to the local Starbucks coffee shop.  Quite often i have opportunity to listen to another's story about life.  i am amazed at how ready another individual is prepared to share his story.  they don't need preparation.  a simple statement like, "it's pretty weather tonight."  let that sink in…. when the Spirit prompts with a simple question, "how are you?" and the dam breaks and stories flow.  i am always amazed.

This night was much like others at the coffee shop with an exception… the gentleman shared with me about his health problems.  we connected with being veterans.  i mentioned God and he went chasing after a young female.  sometimes the seed falls on rocky soil… i am grinning.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
