Hot tea is definitely one of those drinks for an acquired taste. I am whole heartly a hot chocolate fan. However, some of the best conversations I have had involved sitting around drinking hot tea.
Think of one person in your life who first helped lead you to God…
We all have our different journeys and ages when we started our walk with the Lord.
Mine would be my Grammy. My grammy gave me my first stepping stone, my first Bible. She also lived her life for God; an amazing kind hearted influence.
She is also a hot tea lover. We have tea parties with all of her daughters, grand daughters, and great grand daughters. During these tea parties we sit around drinking hot tea or hot chocolate relaxing and grow closer together in conversation.
We maintain our relationship with our relatives through conversation and enjoying each other’s company. Similar to how we maintain our relationship with the Lord. Through talking to Him in prayer or relaxing drinking hot tea while reading His word or doing a devotional.
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
– Ephesians 4:22-24
The Ephesians passage above explains how we change once we start our relationship with the Lord. We are made new in our attitudes and how we think. Being filled with positivity and hope. Live Holy for God not for the world. Through Him you will find way more peace of mind than you could find anywhere else.
Ultimately, only the Lord knows to whom he will reveal himself, but the simple act of giving someone a Bible may be the spark to start the fire while the Lord keeps it burning. Life can be chaotic and busy do not let the chaos put out your fire. Moms house work can wait make time for drinking hot tea with family, friends, and most importantly the Lord. Maintain those beautiful relationships!
