When my days are full


Of the many demands


That are justly mine.


And my heart feels empty of good and true


And full of the ugly and the lies of our time-


Lord Jesus, hold my hand steady.


And when my “cup” is jiggled,


Make me remember that


What spills out in those unexpected trials


Is what I have chosen to already put there.


It isn’t what others do, or say, or think


That makes me do or say or think.


It’s those same old choices,


Coming out of that same old nature


Spilling across the pages of my days


Leaving their colors there.


Ah, my Heavenly Father


May the love of your Sweet Son, Jesus


Fill this heart of mine in ways that overflow


In Living Water, so that what “gets spilled”


Is only more of You.
