Peace



I've got peace like a river.
except sometimes I don't.
and I feel all dried up.

It's easy to accuse Him
of not giving me all that I need.
Even though I know
He always gives me exactly what I need.

And what I need
all I need
is Him.

even still,
right now,
I feel pretty dried up right now.
and tired.

and that makes me sad.
because I want to always feel filled up
with Jesus
and always abide in the truth that
He is enough for me.

Life's hard.
No one denies that.
But I can't imagine
not having Jesus to hold on to.

I just have to remember to actually hold on
and ask Him to fill my cup
and allow that cup to continuously overflow
with only Jesus

and be okay with that.

and when I finally do remember to hold on
and allow myself to be filled up with Jesus
my heart cannot help but be filled with
overflowing joy
and indescribable peace.

and so I am choosing to hold on.
and press on.
and be filled with Jesus.


          Fill My Cup, Lord
          Richard Blanshard
          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 craving The pleasures earthly things afford; But none can match the wondrous treasure That I find in Jesus Christ my Lord.
            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!
