Of Swords And Cups

“Then Jesus said to Peter, ‘Put your sword into the sheath.  Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me?'”  John 18:11. NKJV

Jesus was overcoming His enemy in a way no one could see or understand.

Thank You, Lord, for drinking the cup Your Father gave You and helping us  to drink ours.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Oh Lord, give us wisdom
and discernment

about all that’s
happening

that we may drink
from our cups

knowing it’s not needless
suffering.

God bless you and the cup He’s given you!

Inside The Cup

“Blind Pharisees, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.”  Matthew 23:26

One of the first things Jesus addressed in me was my thought life.

Thank You, Lord, for caring more about what is going on inside of me than how I look to others.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

How I look
on the inside

my thoughts
and my beliefs

matters more
than the outside

so come change
and cleanse me please.

God bless you inside and out!
