These are just some thoughts I had for the Fill my Cup Women's Ministry Theme.  I never did anything with them, so I thought some of you may want to play around with the idea.

What’s your “handle”?

  • Each person handles things differently.

  • What pours into our lives is very different.

  • Look at the woman at the well (John 4).

  • Jesus knew all she went through.

  • He knew about all of her many husbands.

“Saucer” Drippings

  • Are there things that have spilled over into our lives that we are holding on to?

  • God wants to take care of those things and hold on to our worries and burdens for us. 

Get a “grip”

  • Are we allowing the Lord to hold our cup?

  • Do we submit to the grip?

  • Do we allow the Lord to have complete control and allow His working in our lives? 

Say “whoa”

  • Do we say “whoa” when our cup is filled to the right level? 

  • We all have intake in our lives.

  • What’s pouring in?

  • What do we need to say no to?

  • We have got to leave room for the good stuff.

  • Leave room for the things that the Bible says are important.
