Read Psalm 139. Take some time to write or draw how you’re feeling. Write or draw what’s been going on in your life.
Now, grab a cup.
Look at the cup, feel it, notice its shape and design. Think about the cup as a way to look deeper into your spiritual journey.
Does this quote resonate with you? “The ordinariness of the cup reminds me that my personal transformation occurs in the common crevices of each day. The cup is an apt image for the inner processes of growth. The cup has been a reminder of my spiritual thirst. As I’ve held it, filled it, drunk from it, emptied it and washed it, I’ve learned that it is through my ordinary human experiences that my thirst for God is quenched. In the cup I see life, with its emptiness, fullness, brokenness, flaws and blessings.” (Joyce Rupp)
Where in your life do you need to be filled up? What are some things you can pour out?
