Each morning Beth Morrison starts her day with a cup of coffee and her Bible. She thought the Bible was hard to read, but she found doing a little bit each day made it easy. Each morning, with her coffee, she draws deeper into her relationship with God and His word. Morrison shares her love of God, the Bible and coffee in her daily devotion, Honest Reflections: A Quiet Moment with God. This daily devotional will help you draw closer to God. You will learn to apply His word to your life, all while enjoying a morning cup of coffee.
Honest Reflections was started in 2017 as a way for fledgling writer Morrison to share her love of God. As her boldness in sharing her faith increased, she began to write a daily devotion. “Talking about God with someone while having a cup of coffee is my favorite thing to do.”, she says. Honest Reflections is her way of sharing that love of rich conversation and coffee with others.
In 2019 the devotions focused on different topics. Each month explored a theme in the daily writings, helping followers learn more about themselves and God. In 2020, Morrison is taking her devotions in a new direction, as she pursues God’s leading into a new adventure. Following God’s prompting in her life, she’s incorporating more scripture-based content in her writing.
Each day will start with a Scripture that comes from the “Further Reading” section found at the bottom of the devotional. Daily readings will include an Old Testament reading, New Testament reading, Psalms and Proverbs. From those readings, the author will explore how to apply scripture to your life. A “Question of the Day,” will allow readers to focus their thoughts on one aspect of God’s love for them. Group discussions can be facilitated through the comments, either via the Facebook page or blog post. The devotions are designed as a simple way to connect with God, and others.
Morrison is committed to her life verses: “ ‘And you must love the Lord, your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second is equally important; ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31 NIV. She condenses the verses into a four-word mantra for her life, “Love God, love others.” “My prayer is that through my writings, I will help others come to know and love God as I have, completely and wholly.”, she says.
