I thoroughly enjoy Starbucks! No really. The ambiance, decor, even chit chatting with the baristas..when I’m feeling a bit chatty. I find it to be an amazing environment where I can catch up on some reading or complete my course assignments as I work towards my PhD.
I recently went to Starbucks and ordered my usual, caramel macchiato with extra caramel drizzle. After paying for my purchase, I proceeded to my table to setup my laptop and begin working. A few minutes passed and I became a bit concerned that my caramel macchiato was not ready. I walked up to the barista and inquired further. To my delight, I was told I had not been forgotten and that my drink was being made as we speak. Whew! What a relief.
When you find yourself in a season of waiting, sometimes it can seem as though your prayers have gone unheard. This is not the time to give up. God promises in his word that he will never leave us or forsake us(Hebrews 13:5). Stay focused, keep working, keep praying. When I finally received my caramel macchiato it was better than I expected.
