The Rustic Cup
Why “The Rustic Cup?” I have been asked. Well, honestly, this cup has been a representation of my soul. What once was broken can be made full when we fill it with Jesus.
I have filled this rustic cup with my coffee every morning for the better part of seven years. It is dark in color on the outside but soft and light on the inside. It is cracked, chipped, broken and the fact that it still holds coffee is a miracle.
Sort of like the condition of my soul…cracked, chipped, and broken. I was tired, worn out, and felt surrounded by the dark circumstances of life, but every day I filled this cup up with coffee and sat down with my bible and let God fill me back up.
My story is probably like your story, in some ways. We have all been broken, cracked, chipped to the core of who we are in this life. But the journey that Jesus died to give us is one of freedom. Freedom from the pain, the suffering, the brokenness and into a life full of abundance. Full of joy, full of peace, full of forgiveness, full of love, full of grace.
So welcome to my journey! I hope you find a little bit of yourself here and a whole lot of Jesus.
