Spiritual Sundays ~ The Talking Mug



This is my new coffee cup. It talks to me every morning as I start my day. The scripture says: “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” 1 Peter 5:7. The script reads: Good morning, this is God! I will be handling all your problems today. I will not need your help—so have a good day. I love you!

The mug came with instructions. My girlfriend, Glenda, bought it for me at the Joyce Meyer Bookstore while we were at the conference together last weekend. She told me it’s a souvenir to remember all the fun we enjoyed in the Word together! I am to drink my coffee every morning dwelling on this 1 Peter verse and cast all my cares on Jesus who can handle all my problems. I think it is so cute and I’m thankful that she blessed me with it.

And then yesterday came. I got one of those blows from the enemy that knocks you down. Bad news. I just finished my coffee this morning and I’m sitting here remembering who’s I am and how much He cares for me. I'm encouraged.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends. Remember, He cares for you!

I love it! ... Aren't you blessed to have such a caring, thoughtful friend?
This reminds me of a "Footprints" coffee mug one of my co-workers gave me when I left Texas in the mid-80's. To this day, it's my "Sunday and Monday mornings" mug. (Yes, I'm sort-of weird, in that I favor different mugs for each day of the week!)
So sorry to learn someone has hurt your heart, Mary ... I'm holding you in prayer. Please, let me know if I might help?
Love you!
Myra

Hi Saleslady -

Hit Satan back with the Word of GOD, praise, and thanks to Almighty GOD!

GOD has not ceased to fight for you. Give no place to the Devil.
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through GOD to the pulling down of strongholds.
Greater is He that is in you, Mary, than he that is in the world. This is the victory that overcomes the world - our faith.

The witness of GOD is greater.

Psalm 46:5 - KJV
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

2 Corinthians 10:4 - KJV
Ephesians 6 - KJV
1 John 5:4 - KJV
1 John 5:9 - KJV

Love the mug, and the message. Yes, I need to hear that EVERY morning!

Why is it that the enemy always seems to strike right after we've experienced God's blessings? He's way too good at his job.

But, we have someone who fights with us. And He gave us His Word as our weapon.

The mug is true - God cares!!

GOD BLESS!

What a sweet gift! Just when you needed it.:) When I get bad news I always refer back to Jairus. Even though bad news came he still got his miracle. I believe God still has your miracle on His mind...His plans have not changed.:) I'll be agreeing with you for victory!

Mary, what a great reminder to wake up to every morning. Aren't we glad we have the all powerful one to handle our burdens each and every day?
So glad you clung to the Word when the enemy tried to defeat your joy. To God be the glory.

Blessings,
Janis

Hi Mary,

What a wonderful daily reminder of God's love; especially when the enemy of God attacks our thoughts.

May we always cast our cares on Him because we know this truth, "He cares for you."

Blessings and peace.

I love that coffee mug and your header with all the smiles! Have a blessed week!

Mary your talking mug idea is great. I should get one of those. It is good to be reminded as often as you drink your coffee!

I am praying for you now as I write this comment for you - that whatever it was you encountered is already being resolved in heaven, even before you asked.

God knows those who are His, and He has your name written on the palm of His hand.

May you be surrounded by His hedge of protection - from fear and worry and whatever else the enemy wants to throw your way.

Praying for you today.
Love
Lidj

What a special way for your friend to shelter you. So many times our sheltering continues far past the actual event of shelter. I hope you have a blessed week as you continue to cast your care on our Heavenly Father.

Blessings,
Pamela

I'm so sorry the enemy is bothering you! You must be a huge threat to him.

I posted some daily declarations at my other blog. I read them outloud every morning. It's been a tremendous help. Maybe they could help you too?
