Coagulation in my Cup, 11Jun – #481

Standard

481

Thinking about something else but instead a devotion popped out – or should I say leaked out… Truly sorrows (although mine are few compared to so many around the world) are no match for His JOY… GOD WINS…

Here’s my devotion, been a long time since I wrote one – I have peace at camp this morning to share… (PS as soon as I finished writing  I heard car tires and my mom came out to camp to cook breakfast, blessed… This is a camping trip with so many dear family members as we gathered for a memorial of our beloved aunt. We are blessed to gather… We were taught to appreciate our time together…

Coagulation in my Cup, 11Jun

Surely the joy I have – the smile that I get to show – is a result of my overfilling cup… It’s not my right to give away the peace that fills me… Honestly it’s not even my cup…

It’s not even our peace is it?… We did not generate it but we get to share in it, for sure – and that makes me shine a shine of a smile even more… We are blessed to understand that we are vessel, an empty jar of clay… But to be filled with the spirit also means it’s best for us to have an appreciation that the spirit is a gift – peace is ours to maintain… Our cups not just filled – but the cracks are clogged… Clogged cracks prevent leaks… Give us time to look at and count our blessings… Devote ourselves to sharing our blessings..

Peace comes from the Lord… Our Prince of Peace Jesus knows His part of the plan, He teaches us –  His blood represented by wine shared at the Last Supper… His Blood poured out… But remember, blood that pours out of a body coagulates, chunks, globs, it is an attempt to stop the flow… Coagulation in a cup would preserve solid masses – clogging those cracks – preserving the intact vessel best it could be…

Jesus wants our cups to be intact to hold even more…

It’s not our peace to throw away, is it?… it’s not our joy for us to take and crumble down… How could I let my precious peace escape me? How could I not fight to preserve the peace?… All this peace belongs to the one who created us… Created everything… His peace given at a price, so that we are free to be free forever… That’s the good news… The love, the peace, the joy… The mercy for our mess ups, known and unknown. The salvation traded for our sins… There’s nothing to take us away from the love of the Lord whose intervening presence is intended to heal us… Bind our wounds, seal our cups…

Not all cracks can be repaired on our human timeline… But eternally we reach for the source – our eternal home will call us when it’s time and we will be whole…

Here’s my cup Lord, please fill it up…

Lord, please fill the cracks, please clog the spirit leaks. Please Lord, let us be stilled with your peace…Thank You Lord, we know Peace is from You…

Thanks for Your coagulation in our cup…
