Philippians: 111 Full

“Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:11

I’ve been an empty pitcher,
All drained and dusty too,
For trying to get fuller,
Has only cracked me too.

A cracked and broken vessel—
What good thing can it do?
But God has something special,
In mind for me and you.

God made us to have fulness,
Up to the very brim.
He wants to right our chaos,
And fill us up with Him.

But He can’t pour His treasure
Where something else resides.
For vain and empty pleasure
Will fill, and crack the sides.

Then idol after idol,
Surrender them to Christ.
And this, alone is possible,
Through what He sacrificed.

And as we yield those prizes,
He’ll mend our shattered cup,
And give us sweet surprises,
For He will fill us up.
