Overflow!

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“I’m drinking from my saucer…
because my cup has overflowed.”
~Cindy Jones Tamboso, after seeing her nephew Jake standing in the pulpit -
Something only God could do!
 
 
I’m drinkin’ from my saucer
Cuz my cup overflowed!
I’m shoutin’, “Halleluiah!”
If I don’t, I’ll just explode.
 
Cuz God has been so good to us;
We’ve seen His mighty hand.
He’s gone and done a miracle
That we can’t understand,
 
Except to say God’s glory
Was all about the place.
We sensed His hand of mercy;
Saw His amazing grace.
 
So if you see me dancin’,
You’ll know what it’s about.
God blessed us with a miracle,
And left us with no doubt
 
That He’s a God of mercy;
There’s none that can compare.
He’s full of love, and grace, and joy;
And He still answers prayer!
 
So you might need a napkin,
Cuz I might spill on you
From dancin’ with a saucer full
Of dreams that do come true.
 
Praise the Lord!
 
 
“Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.”
Psalm 150:2,6
