When a water vessel is filled with dirt and stones, it cannot be used to quench a thirst.
But, when this vessel is emptied, there is an opportunity to fill it until it overflows with fresh, cool, life-giving water. Water that quenches. Refreshes. Soothes.
Our souls are the same: filled with fear, doubt, and disappointment. Running over with unanswered prayers and lingering questions. When we empty the mess of our lives in the presence of God, we’re offered an invitation to come. An invitation that allows us to come empty – so that we can be filled until we overflow.
Come Empty: Pour Out Life’s Hurts and Receive God’s Healing Love guides you through fifty days of experiencing the fullness of God’s love and His ability to overcome life’s hurts. Each day, you will receive assurance of God’s presence in your difficult situations. Each devotion gives new vision and perspective when you’re hindered by emotional blind spots, and leads you to experience God’s peace and wholeness. When His invitation is accepted, He will set your captive mind and heart free to live fully by His grace. The question is not if you will get an invitation. The question is, will you come?
My thoughts: I really appreciated this book, since Saundra does a fabulous job of relying on personal experiences and those that she has had as a medical doctor to address the need to take your fears and doubts, problems and pain to the Lord and have Him fill you. This book covers a wide variety of hurts and painful situations that covers quite a range. I like how the book is divided into sections, so that the reader can pick and choose what they need to work on. This is a wonderful tool to help believers fill their cup with God's peace and love.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
