Don't talk to me until I've had my coffee.

10 Signs You Have A Coffee Addiction

As we get older, coffee becomes more of a necessity in our daily lives. I think the coffee addiction starts in college. Between the late nights, 8 a.m. classes and finals, we start to drink more coffee to function. Even those who don't like coffee will start to drink at least a little once they get to college. I've always loved coffee, but I will say my addiction grew in college. I know others who can say the same.

Some people will never admit they are addicted to coffee, but if you or someone you know has experienced these 10 signs, then you are a caffeine junkie. Lord knows I have all these signs.

1. You're not awake till you've had your first few sips.

When you first roll out of bed, the first thing that comes to your mind is getting that first cup of coffee into your system. In fact, you are still grumpy and not willing to talk to anyone till you get a sip.

2. You feel like you can't function without it.

If there's ever a morning when you don't get your coffee, you start to feel like your lost. Like something is missing. That's the belated caffeine effect. Sometimes I don't drink coffee till the afternoon, and I swear my mind doesn't work. I think my brain refuses to work correctly till some caffeine gets in my body.

3. When you don't get any coffee you get angry, maybe even a little sassy.

If you ever go a day or so without having coffee, you'll start to get a short fuse with people. Or if you are me, you get sassy with some attitude. I call it sassitude. I tried cutting down on my coffee consumption, so I went a few days without. According to my friends, I was extra sassy. True sign of a addiction.

4. It takes you more than a cup to feel the caffeine effect.

After one cup of coffee, if you still feel like you're not awake or able to get through the day, then you have an addiction. I personally need at least two.

5. You'll get a craving, even at night.

This might be a college student issue, or it could happen if you are someone who works nights a lot. At 7 or 8 p.m., you'll get a random desire to caffeinate. That sometimes happens to me. I'm not sure why it happens, but it can't be a healthy thing to want coffee at night.

6. You can honestly say you've tried everything on the Starbucks menu.

If you're like I am and have ordered just about everything on the Starbucks menu, then you have a very big love for coffee. To try everything on a menu, you must be spending a lot time, and money on coffee. True coffee problems.

7. The barista knows your drink.

If the person making your drink knows what you want the second they see you in the line, then you get coffee far too much. A few of the girls at the Starbucks near my job know the kinds of drinks I get and my favorite flavors. If that happens to you like it does to me, then clearly coffee is your life.

8. You start comparing Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks.

Since you love coffee so much, you've had coffee from all different places. You reach a point where you start comparing. The biggest is Starbucks and Dunkin'. People are either Dunkin' people or Starbucks people. Then there's the twist that some people prefer Tim Horton's. But true coffee addicts will ultimately get coffe anywhere.

9. Espresso lovers.

Lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, oh my! If you reach a point where regular coffee doesn't have much of an effect on you, and only espresso drinks will do, well then, your body has become immune. I personally have reached that point. To feel the caffeine effect, I need either two cups of coffee or one latte.

10. You get happy when someone brings you coffee.

If you get joy when coffee gets delivered to you, then you, my friend, are an addict. I know I get really excited when coffee is brought to me.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes

I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
