Five Minute Friday: Fill

“>
Linking up with Kate Motaung, the new host of Five Minute Friday, and friends. The prompt is “Fill”

“Fill”
I learned the lyrics as a child
They echo now in my spirit decades later
“Fill my cup, Lord. I lift it up Lord. Come and quench this thirsting in my soul. Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more. Fill my cup. Fill it up and make me whole.”

A cup
That which is designed to hold beverages
Water, tea, juice, whatever I chose
My being, the cup designed for You
Created to be indwelt by Your Spirit
Everything else leaves me thirsty
Because they were not designed to do otherwise
Poor substitutes for the Living water
As the woman at the well discovered

Bread of heaven
Everything else will leave me hungry
You Who came that I might have life and have it more abundantly
You, the Bread Who were broken for me
You are Water and You are Life
You are the Word and You are Bread
Fill me up. Fill me up so that my tastes are forever spoiled for all else.
