These mornings I continue to journey through the Gospels along with others for Margaret Feinberg’s #LentChallenge and I am thankful for words on pages that come alive with Spirit and Truth. These words I read are forever new as they are read, if read with a heart that is willing, available…hungry for truth. This morning as I sat and tried to quell the voices and distractions assaulting my mind, a song came to me, and drew me into His presence and out of myself…because out of my SELF is where I need to be to hear Jesus. The song? It’s called Fill My Cup, Lord, and I was introduced to it by a lovely woman of the Word named Connie, many years ago. She gave it to me on a CD she had made with her voice and spirit singing, and it remains a part of my brain’s hard drive to this day. When I hear it in my mind, it’s always her voice ministering grace and truth to me.
“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. “
