My Cup Runs Over

Today is one of those days when it has been hard to put one foot in front of the other.  My “To Do” list seems overwhelming.  There are issues weighing my heart down.  I have spent the week without my husband, missing him tremendously, and today I feel the impact of it all. 

YET, in my difficulty, God reached out to me.  I was at my window, washing the dishes, and my daughter said, “Look at the clouds”.

This is the picture I found out my kitchen window.


The clouds were amazing!  There was this wonderful display – something I had never seen before.  I thought it might be a skywriter, but I couldn’t find one.  Whatever it was, I stood in awe and felt God was reassuring me that He was right here with me, throughout my day.  This happened another time when I was experiencing a very difficult time a few months ago.  I had looked outside and found a double rainbow.

Today, God has enveloped me in His love.

As I sat down to write this, my daughter said, “What are you going to say,  ‘My daughter found this, and my cup runs over'?”  She said that because she had seen a picture of some hot cocoa I had made.  Nevertheless, I felt God speak to me again.  As the psalmist says in Psalm 23,

You anoint my head with oil;

My cup runs over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

All the days of my life.

How has God touched your life today?  Are you experiencing difficulty?  Remember that God is there, and I’m sure He is trying to speak to you in the midst of your day.

May God richly bless you!
