Are you Quenched?

We received a nice rain tonight – I thought “Thanks for watering my flowers God!” Then I saw my geranium, protected under the eave, yearning for the moisture – but the rain couldn’t reach it. I could almost hear it call out “water me” as the refreshing coolness of moisture eluded it.
I know Christians like that – sheltered under an eave, unable to move to the refreshing forgiveness God grants. Playing it safe. Or maybe too afraid to allow the Holy Spirit to enter them to be refreshed anew and take risks for that growth. I’ll admit I have days like that too.
Lord, I lift my needs to you to be quenched by your mercy and goodness – fill me, water me, grow me as you need me to be. Help me to move into the rain in my life. Amen

This refrain sings through my mind tonight….
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.
