Today, as I sit at my desk, words of a chorus from an older hymn continue to creep into my thoughts.  Have you ever had a day, or maybe a week, when all of a sudden you seem to hit a brick wall?  A point where your energy seems to be waning and as you look at your to-do list you begin to wonder how you ever are going to accomplish it all?  Well, this morning seems to be one of those mornings for me.  Yet, the Lord shared a message with me as I sat and pondered what I would write about today.  So let me pass the message on to you.  You can use it today or save it for one of those days in which you hit a brick wall.

Fill my cup, Lord.  I lift it up, Lord!  Come and quench this thirsting of my soul; Bread of heaven, feed me till I want no more.  Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.”  (Chorus written by Richard Blanchard, 1959.)

I know that I needed to hear that today.

  1. Thanks for passing on the word, Jim. As a picture of filling I like to think of glass bottles outside in the rain. The rain falls on all the bottles, but the ones with the wider openings in the top will receive more, (provided the caps are off) 🙂
