It Is Up to God What He Wants to Fill It With..

The Small Empty Cup

So like this little cup I am,
I wonder why I’m here;
My Father knows, so I’ll ask Him,
For He is very near.

“This cup is empty, this cup is small;
What have you planned for me?
How can I be a blessing
When this is all I see?”

“Start where you are, with what you’ve got,”
I thought I heard His voice
“You’ll overflow with blessings
so trust Me and rejoice.”

This is a beautiful poem, thank you for sharing it. Just reading this makes me appreciate what I have in life and being grateful for what I have.

Your poem is lovely, though you are looking "through the glass darkly". The only way to fill your cup to overflowing is to look for ways to help someone else. Do some random acts of kindness, especially look for opportunities to do something kind for someone anonymously. You'll be amazed how healing that is and how blessed you will feel - you have the power to make someone's life better, just by being in it. Let go of the life you feel you wanted, or you deserved, and live a new life where you are in control. :-)
