Fill our cup Lord

Fill my Cup

🎼Like the woman at the well
I was seeking for things that could not satisfy
But then I heard the Savior calling
Draw from this well that shall never run dry

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

There are millions in this world who are craving
The pleasures earthly things afford
But none can match the wondrous treasure
That I find in Jesus Christ, my Lord

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 wholeFill my cup, fill it up and make me whole

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🎼

  1. Lord, May all the children of the world have their cup filled. May the young in every nation drink from the well that will never run dry. Jesus, you invited all the children to come to You and advised there to be no hinderances. Beauty of talents and gifts you give unto them are to be developed without prejudices, jealousies, or words of hinderances spoken by anyone. Let no political agenda, religious untruths or straight line hate be seen in and around the heavenly aura of your precious children. It’s often hard at times to see beauty in the midst of sufferings in the dark of this world. Faith says you are there and you see and that’s alright with me. So please hear my prayer for cups to be filled as others assist with gifts you’ve given them to be lights of grace to light the night!

    1. What a beautifully expressed prayer, Sara, that extends out the hymn so well so that “young in every nation drink from the well that will never run dry.”
      I would like to join the prayer and say “Amen” to it. And the photo illustrates it perfectly.

      1. I agree in prayer, as well.🙏 what a beautiful song by Mr. Blanchard, and I enjoyed hearing this lady sing it. 🎶

  2. “Story Behind The Hymn, “Fill My Cup, Lord”

    Life was never to be a bed of roses for Richard Blanchard.

    A severe lung problem developed, and Blanchard was left with one-third of his lung capacity. But a diminished physical well-being did not stop young Blanchard.

    In 1953, he became the pastor of a church in Coral Gables, Florida, and one day, was asked by a young couple to perform their marriage ceremony. However, the couple was quite late for their counseling appointment.

    Blanchard told his secretary, I will wait for thirty minutes and Im leaving. He then went to a nearby Sunday school room and sat down to play the piano for a while.

    He later said, When I was not in the mood to be used of God, God was in a mood to use me. In less than thirty-minutes, as he waited for the young couple, God gave him the inspiring song Fill My Cup, Lord.

    As Richard Blanchard looks back over his life, he declares even though God chose in his providence to impair my physical being, he has in so many other ways Filld My Cup.”

    1. Pastor Richard Blanchard and a part of his pastoral sheep shepherding paints a real life painting to hang on an office wall of Paul’s words penned to remind believers don’t [grow weeds grow figs! ]The apostle Paul gives warning in verse 7 chapter 9 in the book of Galatians, you cannot mock the justice of God for you WILL reap what you plant.
      “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
      (Galatians 6:9 ESV)

      I hope not any reader here feels how I feel many times. Well for the sake of time and space here weeds start to look ok in my garden patch. Prayer for others look like stale bread! Love others as yourself now that’s a good one. Loathe myself with words of woe and all is good.

      I think my point is made keep your refresh button handy and focus on the harvest you have planted. It’s on the way!

      Thank you Lord for daily filling my cup!

  3. I love the prayer Sara which you composed and will join in praying as well.

    Yesterday I read a devotional by Oswald Chambers.

    As I love poetry I found turgid in “Stream in the Desert devotional”
    My Cup Overflow by Margaret E. Barber

    There is always something “over”
    When we trust our gracious Lord;
    Every cup is overflowing,
    His great rivers all are broad.
    Nothing narrow, nothing sparing,
    Every springing from His store;
    To His own He gives full measure,
    Overflowing, evermore.

    There is always something “over,”
    When we, from the Father’’s hand,
    Take our portion with thanksgiving,
    Praising for the plans He gave.
    Satisfaction, full deepening,
    Feels the soul, and lights the eye,
    When the heart has trusted Jesus
    All its needs to satisfy

    There is always something “over,”
    When we tell of all His love;
    I reached depths still lie beneath us,
    Unsealed heights rise far above:
    Human lips can never utter
    All wondrous tenderness,
    And His name forever bliss.

    Thinking on all writing above made
    me think of the scripture “ Blessed are the poor in
    spirit…(devotional Oswald Chambers)
    ( Matthew 5:3) below is what I got from the devotional.

    When we come to believe in Jesus and have
    a relationship with Him overflowing as mentioned in other comments come, The Holy Spirit changing our
    character our cup is empty and
    Daily as we seek Him),He fills us as we walk in His way . This is the first principle in the kingdom of God.
    Before we come to know Jesus we have self centered thoughts. May you know, Jesus did not only come to teach- He came to teach us what we should be. Continuing with Him,the Holy Spirit will show each of us how much we have sinned. we will realize that which has been a stumbling block in the way of our walk with Jesus.

    Only when we are willing to come to Him as paupers, and receive from Him when we come with futility, and we finally admit it to Him: Jesus then says “ Blessed are
    You…(5: 11) This is doorway to the kingdom (heaven). It takes so long to believe that we are poor! The knowledge of our own poverty is what brings us to the proper
    place where Jesus Christ accomplishes His work . As you walk with Him He shows you
    what to unload and with unloading, your cup with Jesus starts filling up.

    As you fill up daily, as Sara said
    Then you will plant and walk with Him. It is on its way.
    , Focus on the harvest you have planted.
