Cup of Coffee

Each day needs to be a pilgrimage
into my own heart.

“This day is yours, Lord,”
I say each day upon rising.
Yet, before I even finish
my first cup of coffee,
the day has become mine.

God never shouts to be heard over our noise.
Only silence gives God a chance to speak.

The soul that waits on God,
patiently and unhurriedly,
will eventually be filled
with the realization he or she
is infinitely loved.
