Niagara

God’s Word says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope” Romans 15:13

My glass was full,
full of dirty water.

But Jesus turned my glass over
and washed the water out.

Now He fills my glass
with living water.
Jesus fills my glass
with hope
and peace
and joy
and living water.

He doesn’t fill it from the faucet.
He doesn’t dip it in the well.

Jesus fills
my eight-ounce glass
from Niagara —
a million gallons
in a moment
overflowing
my eight-ounce glass.
