A Bunch

Dylan’s Candy Bar in NYC
“You fill my cup until it overflows.”
Psalm 23:5 NLT

More….As I continue to ponder this word, there are many things that I desire more of throughout my week…more time, more sushi, more shopping, more sleep, more coffee…but at some point, if I had an abundance of any of these things, I would no longer want it.  At some point, you reach your limit.

But God…So vast and abundant is He, he can’t be measured or contained, and He is never too much.  There’s no maxing out when it comes to God. 

Years ago I heard Beth Moore talk about her young daughter always wanting candy.  When given the chance to have some candy, her daughter would eagerly ask, “Can I have a BUNCH of it?!?”  One piece wasn’t enough.  She didn’t think anything was worth having unless she could have a bunch.

At some point, a bunch of candy will make you sick, but we can always have a BUNCH of God!

This year, I don’t just want a little piece, I want a BUNCH.

O God, You are my God;
         Early will I seek You;
         My soul thirsts for You;
         My flesh longs for You…
My soul follows close behind You;
         Your right hand upholds me.  
Psalm 63:1,8 (NKJV)
