Pour Me Out, God!

You know the song, "I'm a Little Teapot"?


It's been replaying in my head all day and I can't get it out. Don't ask me why, I have no idea.

I could attribute it to my liking of tea, or random brain psychology stuff that I do not understand, but I'm gonna take it seriously, like I so often do.


I have no clue where this post is going to lead us, but I trust God to direct my steps (and typing fingers).



So, today was are talking about being teapots.




I don't think I need to tell you the words because thanks to me, the tune is probably stuck in your head as well.


So let's dive in.


In full honesty, I don't really care about the short and stout, handle and spout stuff. That's all good and well, but we get it.


Even the rest of it, steam and tipping over and pouring out, pretty basic, right? Everyone over the age of four understands what's happening here.



But what if we took this simple childhood song and applied it to our faith?



What if being steamed up refers to our passions, to what ignites our souls?

And what if our yelling to be tipped over is our prayerful plea to be utilized by our Lord?


We yearn to be poured out, to share our God-given gifts with the world.


Suddenly, this song has become a lot more serious.


Jesus says to have childlike faith (Matt 8:2-4), and I think part of His reasoning is because children see the wonder in all things, the God in all things.



As adults, we could use a little more of that.


What if we went through our daily lives with wonder and awe in our hearts? Where a sunrise is a treasure greater than gold, and a stranger's smile is a beacon of joy. What if we decided to look, to seek God's hand in all things? Searching for the good in the bad, the profound in the mundane.


If He can use "I'm a Little Teapot" to construct a mini-message, there's nothing that our God can't do.



So, everyone, let's channel our inner child and our inner teapot.



Today, let's make an effort to see the world in wonder. And let's make our world even more wonderful by inviting God to tip our little teapot-selves over and pour our His spirit through us. Ask Him to use you, friends, and He most certainly will.
