Half full?


You wake up in the morning.

Your glass is empty.

You are thirsty.

So

you take your glass

&

start filling it with

something~

maybe

Thoughts from yesterday

Anxieties of today

Fears of tomorrows

or

maybe

your

To do list or

Your striving or

Your wishes and dreams or

just

Anything that will fit~

making it either an

Half~empty glass

kinda of a day

or an

Half~full glass

kinda of a day.

Whatever kinda of a day it is,

what about the other

half of the glass

as it still remains empty?

What will you fill it with?

But what if,

just what if

you start filling your glass

by looking up

to the

source

Who

never tires

of

filling you

with

His Peace

His Joy

His Hope

His Love

because

He is a constant stream

that never dries out~

even in those times

when you just can't

quench your thirst

with the "whatever"

you put in your glass

in hopes

that this time

you will be

satisfied,

yet

your glass

never gets filled to the brim

because

you are

drinking from the wrong spring.

But if you

look up and

“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters;

and you who have no money, come, buy and eat!

Come, buy wine and milk

without money and without cost.

Why spend money on what is not bread,

and your labor on what does not satisfy?

Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,

and you will delight in the richest of fare." Isaiah 55:1-2

Because

Jesus

wants to fill you up~

“Anyone who is thirsty may come to me!

Anyone who believes in me may come and drink." John 7:37-38

Therefore,

just

Come

to

the

Water Source

so that you

become

Filled Up~

instead of

Fed Up~

and have a

full glass

kinda of a day.

Because

when you do & when I do

there is no room for anything else

to fit in your glass,

so the

Thoughts from yesterday

Anxieties of today

Fears of tomorrows

would just dribble down the side of the glass

because

your glass is

always being filled

by

Him.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
