My Cup Runneth Over

Written by on September 3, 2017 in Poetry and Song, The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

My cup runneth over…
Divine Love, expand my cup

Expand the cup of my willingness to receive
Broaden my mind to ponder truth
Sharpen my ears to hear your voice
Awaken my eyes to see your presence
Strengthen my legs to walk your path
Sweeten my tongue to speak with kindness
Temper my pride to listen deeply
Widen my arms to embrace the weary
Extend my hands to those in need
Straighten my back to take a stand
Move my heart to compassion

   Expand the cup of my being
So that I resemble Love incarnate
A little more each day

My cup runneth over with all your good…
Divine Love, expand my cup
