Fill my Cup, Lord
I am ashamed at how stubborn I can be at times and how self-sufficient I try to be. Lord, please forgive me. I truly am unable to do anything good without you. I'm tired of attempting to carry my own burdens and forgetting that You are my Burden Bearer. Most times it's my own fault that I am facing trials and tribulations. It's only when I am empty of myself that I can be filled with You. Jesus, You are the only One that can truly satisfy my soul. Help me to not give in to despair and discouragement. Help me to remember that I'm here to bring glory and honor to You and to not fear the opinions of man. Keep my eyes fixed on eternity, not on the long journey ahead or my past failures, but on the Hope of an eternity spent with You. Thank-you Lord for your mercy, love, and forgiveness. In You, I can have hope, peace, and joy unspeakable. Help my life to bear the fruit of Your Spirit and not the works of the flesh. Filll my emptiness with Your Holy Spirit and lead me in the way everlasting. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.
Fill My Cup, Lord
Like the woman at the well, I was seeking
For things that could not satisfy.
And then I heard my Savior speaking—
“Draw from My well that never shall run dry.”
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.
There are millions in this world who are seeking
For pleasures earthly goods afford.
But none can match the wondrous treasure
That I find in Jesus Christ my Lord.
So my brother if the things that this world gives you
Leave hungers that won’t pass away,
My blessed Lord will come and save you
If you kneel to Him and humbly pray—
