The quote going around right now, “You can’t pour from an empty cup”, is so true. While we sipped our cups of coffee and admired our gorgeous coffee mug paintings, I talked about this and how the verse went along with it.
Now, I don’t know how I feel about the “put yourself first” that is going around with the quote. In my opinion, it’s more a reminder to take care of yourself also. That aside, I pointed out that with God, our cup already overflows. I challenged my guests to not look to their own strength and provision, but to God’s. On our own, our cup is empty. We are running on low fuel. However, when we trust God’s provision, He provides “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Eph. 3:20.)
So when you are struggling or running out of strength. Stop a moment, put God first and remember His provision, then remember to take care of yourself through that provision.
This party was so much fun and was such a great reminder for the start of the year. We were able to eat treats, drink some delicious coffee, get creative, have some girl time, and leave with a better outlook.
What will you paint at your party? Will you make any of these treats? Let me know in the comments!
