Overview

For every time you’ve tried too hard, fell too far, or struggled too much, the refreshing cups in this book–or reminders of God’s infinite grace and mercy–will renew you like cool, clear water after a long, dry walk on a dusty, pitted, uphill road.

David poured his dashed hopes, broken dreams, haunting doubts, and paralyzing fear down that well and found all that’s collected here, all he, like you, needs for living with peace, joy, and purpose: cool cups of relief, comfort, revival, and sustenance.

Because Water Is Life.
And 101 Cups of Water Will Quench Your Thirst.

Come–take and drink these surprisingly deep little cups of fresh, clear water for your soul.”

Read an Excerpt

Day 1:
A Cup of Grace

I can’t live the Christian life.

Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve tried and I’ve tried and I can’t. I haven’t loved God with all my heart, soul, and mind, and I certainly haven’t loved my neighbors as myself. It’s that simple.

The Big Lie that’s weighed so heavily on me is that I can make my Christian life “work.” It’s a lie that has stood in the way of my enjoying true communion with God, a lie that’s kept me from more fully appreciating the beauty of the creation around me and the community of others.

So, yes, I admit that I can’t make my Christian life work. Praise be to God, who has freed me from the trying. He’s shown me that only Christ can live the Christian life, and he lives that life through me more fully as I get that trying-harder Self out of his way (Galatians 3).

So what do I do? I ask the Holy Spirit to show me my weakness, my sin, my need. I bring it all to the cross. And when the good news of God’s love pours over me, it is then I realize, with my heart filled with gratitude, that Christ lives through me.

No, I can’t live the Christian life on my own–and he loves me anyway.

    Simply Refreshing...

    These short, yet deep cups keep me going through any conflict, internal or external, that I may face in my day-to-day life. I only wish there was 365 cups of water.

    101 Cups of Water by C.D. Baker is a book filled with wisdom. Each devotion reaches far into the soul where we thirst for a soothing cup of water flowing from the throne of our Lord. Scripture is scattered throughout the book to enhance and support the message. Opposite each photograph is a black and white photograph. Each photograph brought a feeling of calm and peace to this reader. The devotions cover such topics as grace, forgiveness, and discernment. The words are encouraging and uplifting. One of my favorites in this book is ¿a cup of relaxation.¿ The quote at the end of the devotion is beautiful, ¿Trusting God¿s agenda instead of my own helps me slow down a little and gives me freedom to relax.¿ ¿A cup of un-contro¿l has a delightful message. Life is filled with things we have no control over. When we place Him in charge, we can defeat worry. When my desk begins to over flow and my life seems to lose all semblance of order, I need only to remember that God is the God of order not chaos. 101 Cups of Water is a must read for all Christians.
