Filled To The Brim

"Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim." John 2:7

Filled To The Brim

In the first miracle account in the Gospel of John, there was a marriage reception and according to the scripture they ran out of wine. As the account goes, the LORD told the servants to fill up the six waterpots of stone ( about nine gallons each ) with water. Here is the part that struck me as amazing, I’m not sure if the servants new that they were in the presence of the creator, but with flawless expectations they filled the pots to the BRIM! Wow! When I read this passage (for probably the 100th time or more) , it was like a new inspiration struck me, what ever they where expecting they wanted a lot of it. I know that this was the beginning of miracles but I wonder if they had any idea what to expect. This new application just gave me a desire to expect an abundance of promises from GOD. From this passage I am encouraged to be prompt in my obedience to Christ even when the request may seem a little strange, because HE’s about to do something WONDERFUL!! Can you imagine how they would have felt if they only filled the containers half full and only got half the blessings. That would have been an
"Aw Man!" moment.

LORD thank you so much for your ever Living Word, that continues to grow in it’s meaning as we continue to grow in you.

So Remember ladies, get out those waterpots and fill it to the brim and watch the LORD change it into something GREAT!!!!!

Here’s a challenge, if you join up to follow my site and tell me what you want the LORD to fill up your waterpot with I’ll send you a surprise.

A Mothers Wish

Hello Ladies and a belated Happy Mothers Day!!! But then everyday is Mothers day, because every day we are mothers. Some of you may have read my poem already as I posted it with my Homeschool Group and also to other family and friends but just wanted to post it on my blog as well. You would not believe what a pain it is to try and recover lost passwords and logins, but YEAH!! I have finally done it. So here's my poem I pray that it will be a blessings and I think universally for Christian moms this poem is true:

A Mothers Wish
We have a wish that we wish for you and often it’s in prayer,
We wish that we could impart to you the Love we love to share
From the moment you were babies and we held you in our arms
And realized how special you were and how blessed it was be a mom
We wish that we could take you back to the first day that we met
And tell you all the many dreams we’ve dreamed for you but yet,
It’s not about the past you see it’s about renewed chances
Sometimes we yell or scream or stomp and you may give us peevish glances
But we know that you know we love you and we can start over again,
To build upon the relationship that started the day we held your tiny hands.
A mothers love is special, the LORD taught us from the start,
He taught us how to love a perfect stranger and how to love you from our hearts.
Its crunch time now and you’ve grown up quite fast, even faster than we’d dreamed
And we know that this world would love to devour you
So we try to warn you of Satan’s schemes.
We fail sometimes, no probably very often but our love for you is true and all we’ve wanted from you all our lives is for you to do the things GOD told us to tell you.

Deuteronomy Chapter 6 tells us:

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

Now these are the words we’ve tried to live by and to instruct you your hold life through. It doesn’t matter how old you get we are still responsible for you.

Now the LORD told us that if we would train you up in the way that you should go
That once you are old you would not depart so now all we can do it sit back and watch as you continue to grow.

These are wishes that we wish for you. That you would grow up in the ways of the LORD and shun the wickedness of this world and to live in peace and safety in the promises of GOD.

So remember the sayings that mommy knows best and yes we have eye’s in the back of our heads, it’s called discernment and it’s a special gift that was especially designed for us by the Master’s Hand.

We love you dear children and we just wanted to say that as we go through life and many more mothers days, we wish you all these wishes and a wonderful blessed life too and we pray with all our hearts you will wish these wishes too.
