A CUP RUNNETH OVER

A cup runneth over surely prevails Above dining table midst angst of dearth Oh, bountiful supply that never fails Since God pours always blessings with grace-worth. Evidence of miracles’ prevalence A cup runneth over surely prevails Smiting unbelief of great turbulence For the Lord grants gracious provision-pails. Against scarcity that grievously ails Afflicting giving and sharing gladness A cup runneth over surely prevails While the Almighty proves His faithfulness. Trusting the Creator, wondrous life Source My heart thanks Him, and His compassion hails As He fills me to say along hard course… “A cup runneth over* surely prevails.”
*Psalm 23:6 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. July 23, 2022 4th place, "Pick-A-Title, Vol 31" Poetry Writing Contest Sponsored by Edward Ibeh; judged on 7/30/2022.

Love the refrain: A cup runneth over surely prevails. Many won’t touch the “good stuff” or barely fill their cup. He has more than enough. He is more than enough and he willingly provides us with more than we ever asked for! God bless you, Beata!
