My Cup Runs Over

Sometimes I feel like I’ll never fit in.

Like no one around me wants me to win.

To win at this life where I have been placed.

To conquer the challenges I have faced.

And then I remember, the Lord God Almighty

Has chosen ME ever so wisely

To be His child,

Entrusted with gifts

Gifts that only I can give.

What are my gifts?

I’m not quite sure yet

So I act like myself,

I try doing my best

At whatever it is to be thrown my way:

Different Things,

Different people,

Different events each day.

I just act like myself.

I do what I can.

I take one step at a time,

Knowing God is my biggest fan.

Sometimes I stumble.

Sometimes I fall.

Sometimes I crumble.

And then I must call.

Call on the Lord

To please pick me up.

When my heart is left empty,

To please fill my cup.

Then my cup runs over.

My cup overflows,

In ways unimagined,

Far greater than I could know.
