To be honest, when I received my Christmas present from my dad at Christmas this past year, I didn’t think I was going to make much use of it.
You see… I was very happy with my current way of brewing fresh coffee. For a few years now, I have been using a specific hand press (also bought for me by my dad!) and have been very satisfied with the results! So when I opened the package from my dad and it contained a new, different kind of hand press, I didn’t think it would get much use.
Fast forward over a month from then to today, and I am surprised to be telling you that I have not actually used my old hand press since Christmas!!!
It turns out my Father was right and knew I would actually benefit from this new thing that I didn’t particularly want at the time or think I needed.
Do we sometimes neglect to embrace that which our heavenly Father has for us? Sometimes we are so comfortable with our current way of doing things that we struggle to embrace the new, possibly even better way.
Right, I’ll have to leave it there; I’m off to grind some coffee beans! Oomph!
