As I bring out the kettle and fill it to the brim, joy begins to seep in.
As I wait for the water to boil,
I pray about what’s on my heart
As I gather the teapot, the cup, spoon,
honey, and tea;
I lay down a memorized
scripture or two or three.
As I pour the steaming water over
the fragrant tea,
I breathe in the comforting delight.
As I wait for the tea to fully steep,
I heap praises
at Jesus’s feet.
As the brew comes to perfection,
I pour out thanks to the One who
who transformed me
from bitterness to kindness.
As I pause over my teacup,
I invite the Redeemer
to join me at my tea.
As I sip the sweet tea,
I’m reminded that
I’m never alone,
May your tea time preparations
be filled with joy, comfort,
and a sweet time in
Christ's uplifting presence.
