"Gratitude for All of It" with Rev. Melanie Eyre ~ Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020 at 11am EDT Please join our livestream by clicking the link below! Don't forget to set your clocks back one hour on Saturday night.

Sometimes we all feel empty and in need. Often, when this feeling crashes over us, we reach out–seeking God or sometimes fulfillment in others, situations, circumstances or material things.  But when we truly open our eyes to the abundance around us all the time, we feel complete from the inside out.

In this version of the beautiful classic Christian hymn, Asha acknowledges asking for a shift in perspective, a better understanding of the truly abundant world in which we live, where our needs are met on a moment by moment basis. Instead of seeing the glass (or cup, in this case) as half-full or empty, we seek to know that the glass is indeed full, and we remember that the well of Source “never will run dry”.

Fill My Cup Lord
Composer, Richard Eugene Blanchard Sr.
(Revised Lyrics, A. Lightbearer)

 

Like the woman at the well, I was seeking
For fear and doubt had filled my eyes
And then I heard sweet Spirit speaking
“Drink from my well, that never will run dry”

Fill my cup, Lord. I lift it up, Lord.
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of heaven feed me till I want no more.
Fill my cup. Fill it up and make me whole.

There are millions in this world who are craving
The pleasures gold and silver buy,
When all around are blessings they’re not seeing
Precious gifts that they are passing by

Fill my cup, Lord. I lift it up, Lord.
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of heaven feed me till I want no more.
Fill my cup. Fill it up and make me whole.

Here’s a little musical treat from within our own One World family (left to right): Lori Rich, Kathy Freese and our former Music Director, Debbie Schrodt. With the help of their Manager and number one fan, Ellen Fox, they perform as the band called BLOOM, named for Debbie’s wife, Bambi Bloom, who was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers a few years ago. Bambi is only 52 years old..

BLOOM’s mission is to create more awareness surrounding Alzheimer’s and raise funds for Alzheimer’s research.

This particular song was written by Kathy Freese, and “Ooh, baby, life is good!”
