Why I love Coffee Shops

The comforting and peaceful smell of fresh coffee beans brewing. The low and cozy lights dancing on the page of my book. The white foam swirling around the warm cup in my hand. The old wooden table I am resting my elbows on as I have a deep and meaningful conversation with a friend. Coffee shops. They really can create and cultivate some of the most meaningful and beautiful friendships, ideas, and passions.

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
Hebrews 10:25

I have been thinking about why I enjoy coffee shops so much and what about them keeps me coming back. I believe it is all about the atmosphere. Certain coffee shops have an atmosphere of cozy, others of industrial and others of vintage. But they all offer an atmosphere that make people want to sit down with a fresh cup of brew and spend hours soaking it all in.

Coffee shops are the places where I always choose to meet with people to talk about life, marriage, hardships and the future. It was at coffee shops in college where I was the most productive with my homework and papers. Now they are the places where my most creative thinking goes on for my blog. They are places where I can worship my God by listening to music and sermons about my joy in Him. 

It was in a coffee shop where I sat crying to my mentor Sharon as I told her about some of the struggles of dating and where she prayed for me and encouraged me with scripture.It is in a coffee shop where I had my first real date with my husband and where we still go on dates to talk about Jesus, our future children, and what it looks like to make disciples who make disciples for the glory of our creator.

Coffee shops have a way to inspire you to be great to live your life for a purpose and discover who it is that God desires for you to be. I have had some of my best quiet times and retreat days in coffee shops and God always seems to speak to me in those places.
