Take the shot!

Earlier this month I read a great post over at Coffee Shop Journal, who shared a great analogy she had heard between leadership and coffee. Please take a moment to read.

I love it when anything coffee can teach me something! As I was reading this post I started thinking how this analogy is a good challenge for everyone, not just leaders.

Everyday we have amazing opportunities to “espresso our life” by the choices we make. Some choices are scary because they force us out of our comfort zone and challenge us to be bold. Today…I don’t want to miss the shots that God has to offer me. If I miss the shot then I miss the blessings the experience has to offer too.

    You are so right… "Everyday we have amazing opportunities to "espresso our life" by the choices we make." It's in those out-of-our-comfort-zone places that the sweetest blessings lie! Thanks for this Eileen!

    It reminds me of something –
    Right before Jesus ascended to heaven, He told the disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the 'power from on high'. After about 10 days of waiting and praying, the Holy Spirit came in power on the day of Pentecost.

    The disciples were filled with a high octane shot of espresso that day and went out to turn the world upside down (or right side up) depending on how you look at it.

    I need that daily shot from the Holy Spirit as well..
