My cup overflows with blessings as I wake up to beauty outside my window. I relax into the arms of my pillow . Arms of dwelling in a safe place and knowing a God that loves me and anoints me with the fragrance of the Holy Spirit .
Gratitude wells up deep within as I stay here in this place .
He anoints me! Jesus the one who died and suffered and now holds all of the suffering of this world .
He fills me ! My cup overflows with blessings . I imagine holding a small cup before him and he fills it to the brim . But what kind of cup does he really want to fill for me today? Is it this small, minute unimportant cup that he sees? Or is it an expansive never ending space that he wants to fill and fulfill until there isn’t any more space but to overflow and continue to flow. His love and blessings know no boundaries so why should I?
I stretch out my cupped hands holding them up before my Lord now and await his presence .
“You, Oh God, are an unending source of all I could ever need . I await for your presence , the Holy Spirit to fill me .
I allow you to come and give to me what you chose for me this day .
I accept this love and life that you fill me with.
Help me this day to attend to the flow of your spirit within me.
May I find you in everything and carry the fragrance of kindness to all I meet.
I offer up my life as a cup for you to fill and overfill. May I not try to contain it by living in fear anymore.
I will follow you in freedom with arms raised high .
Blessed be your name , Jesus.”
