Life as a Beggar

Have you ever seen a beggar sitting on the side of the road with his cup stretched out?

He desperately reaches out to everyone and everything around him, in hopes of getting his cup filled.

How many times in life have we been like that beggar, frantically peddling for the measly pennies of fulfillment around us? But as you and I have tried to fill up the empty cup in our soul, we’ve lost sight of our Father who is ready AND willing to fill the aching void in our hearts.

“There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.” -Blaise Pascal

Praise the Lord for an all-fulfilling Savior.

Fill my cup, Lord.
I’m here and empty.

Fill my cup, Lord.
Please make me whole.
