Devotionals

As I promised to start posting what I had on my other web site, here is a Tea party Devotional. Use this for your own personal devotion or you may copy and print it for a ladies tea.

A TEA PARTY DEVOTIONAL

ARE YOU A TEA CUP OR A TEA POT?

TEACUPS ARE:
  • Beautiful
  • Delicate, yet strong
  • Unique
  • Offers relaxation and soothes the spirit
  • Holds what is put into them with no outlet

TEAPOTS ARE:
  • Beautiful
  • Delicate, yet strong
  • Unique
  • Offers relaxation and soothers the spirit
  • Pours out what is put into it


-------------------------------------
Read 2 Corinthians 1: 3-5

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.”

2 Corinthians 1: 3-5

-------------------------------------------------
When you compare a teacup and a teapot you will notice they both have fine qualities, yet one holds onto what is put into it, while the other pours it out again.
Which would you rather be? A Teacup or a Teapot? If the ‘tea’ is left inside it will become old and stagnant, so it is with us. If we hold onto blessings and not pour them out onto others, we to become old and stagnant. We will remain beautiful on the out side, but what is on the inside will become displeasing to the Lord and ourselves. If we pour ourselves and our blessings out over others, we remain fresh and rejuvenated. The Lord will keep us filled with His Spirit and His Love as we go back to Him to be strengthened and encouraged.

The Lord is the one who fills us each day. As we do our daily devotionals and prayers we allow Him to encourage us, teach us and comfort us. We are being filled with His Spirit. What are we doing with all this love and wisdom that he has filled us with? Are we pouring it out (of our teapots) onto others each day, or are we holding it all in our tea cups?

God comforts us, so we in turn should comfort those around us in need.

-------------------------------------------------
You may print this out and use it to hand out. Tip: Roll it in a scroll and tie a pretty ribbon. Tuck a little flower behind the bow. Place one at each place setting as a favor/momento for each guest.

  3. Thank you so much. You know, I haven't posted on this site for a long time. I have been busy putting up another site now. It's called "Little Fancifuls". As soon as I get that one up I think I'll start adding to this site. I used to cater tea parties! My other site is a crafting/sewing site with ideas, tutorials, freebies, etc. It's not published yet. you can email me at littlefancifuls.com@gmail.com. Thank you for your comment and may God Bless, JoAnn
