My Cup Overflows

I’ve never made a fortune,
and it’s probably too late now.
But I don’t worry about that much,
I’m happy anyhow.

And as I go along life’s way,
I’m reaping better than I sowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven’t got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going’s tough
But I’ve got loving ones all around me,
and that makes me rich enough.

I thank GOD for his Blessings,
and the Mercies HE’s bestowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and the sun peeped through again.

So LORD, help me not to gripe,
about the tough rows I have hoed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

If GOD gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I’ll not ask for other blessings,
I’m already Blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I’ll keep drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

 

 

 

 


			

It’s All In The Focus

November 24

“Offer to God thanksgiving,
and pay your vows to the Most High.
Call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”
Psalm 50:14-15

HOW we take for granted the many blessings he has blessed us with. If your eyes see, think of those who are blind. If your ears hear, think of those who are deaf. If your legs carry you, think of those who are paralyzed. Remember, “There, but for the grace of God go I.”

We tend to approach God with our needs. But before you ask anything of the Lord, first bring thanksgiving to him. Bring thanksgiving due to God for the many blessings in your life.

In order to put things into perspective, write down what you are thankful for. Keep writing. Write some more. The big things, and then the little things. When you see it on paper, you will be amazed at the blessings of God in your life.

vs 50:
“Whoever offers praise glorifies me;
and to him who orders his conduct aright
I will show the salvation of God.”
