Today’s Devotional – Fill My Cup Lord

To say that the kids love my homemade chicken noodle soup is a bit of an understatement, but I have to say that no one loves it more than our granddaughter Julia. In fact, a spoon isn’t fast enough for that little girl. At least not when it comes to Grandma’s soup.

Holding the bowl in her two little hands, she’s learned to pour it into her mouth. When that’s not sufficient, in goes the head slurping away as she munches it down.

She’s not like that with all of my food, but there’s something special about Grandma’s soup that’s captured her heart.

As I got to watching her today, I was reminded of an old hymn by Richard Eugene Blanchard Sr:

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.

Some days I’m like that sweet child. I love reading, but there’s something special about reading God’s Word that’s captured my heart. When it comes to the Bible I’m not satisfied with merely a spoonful or two, I need more.

And so, I immerse myself in His Word, drown myself in His thoughts, and nothing tastes better than that.

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! (Psalm 119:103)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.

It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical FitnessReshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
