April was a busy month for me. My husband and I took our kids to a church youth camp in Louisiana, approximately 17 hours without stops, at Easter. We did another shorter camp last weekend that was much closer to home. The services were amazing for people of all ages, not just kids and teens. God answered so many prayers for our family! The weeks in between were spent growing in the Lord too. I can barely recognize who I was a month ago. Quite honestly, I was terribly depressed. I was living on what felt like a mustard seed of faith. These posts of sharing songs and my faith were a life line.
Sometimes I don’t know if I am reaching anyone or helping anyone with these posts. However, I often write posts weeks ahead of time and schedule them for a month or more away. So, the posts ended up helping ME as I had something positive and encouraging scheduled each week. Every time, it was exactly what I needed to hear. I believe that was divine inspiration.
However, for this week, I didn’t have something scheduled yet. I was praying about it and this song came to me. I feel like I am living this song as much as I lived the songs about keeping faith through storms and praising God even when it feels like He’s not answering. I am now living in the overflow. Praise the Lord! All my doubt is gone and I am already thanking God for what I will soon see. The Cross finished it and it is already done: my healing (spiritual, emotional, and physical) and restoration of my family. My cup runs over.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Every night at the end of my prayers I quote Psalms 23, which I have memorized and then I read/pray a version of The Lord’s Prayer a friend wrote.
Our father who is in heaven and who also dwells in each one of us, we praise & honor your hallowed name. Your kingdom comes to earth & your will is done when we live in love, remembering & following the example of Jesus. We thank you for daily feeding our hearts & minds with the lifelong strength of your love & grace. Forgive us our trespasses when we stray from your will & way and give us the strength to forgive those who trespass against us. Be our strength as we journey on life’s pathway, by leading & protecting us, & by guiding us away from temptation & evil. For you and your kingdom are love & power & glory & might forever & ever. Amen.
