The Great Exchange

Only with God can we empty ourselves & by doing so, become full. That is a miracle to me.
It defies logic & confounds the wisest among us.
I have seen it many times in my own life.
He is where I run when things get too big for me.
When they get too scary.
When I am turning inside-out with anxiety –
Over what may or may not happen –
And in all the emptying to Him, as I pour out every ounce of me –
All that I can muster –
It happens. I become full again.
But oh-my, the trade-off is So. Much. Better.
Because every time, in this sweet exchange
I become filled with peace & joy unspeakable.
With a knowing that every little & big thing’s gonna be allright.
A knowing that I am protected.
Even when the enemy is screaming in my face so close I can almost smell his acrid breath.
This re-filling really does amazingly enable us to walk right past the monsters that come calling –
Instead of cowering in corners of perceived safety
Of our own making. God help us.
We all have them.
Jesus truly is the well that never runs dry.
His strength really is perfected in our weaknesses.
He really will keep us in perfect peace –
When we keep our weary & grateful minds on Him.
Amazing Love.
Amazing Grace.
Amazing God….
Much love y’all, & much more emptying ourselves for more of Him,

  1. so GOOD! we cannot experience life as “authentic me” without Him filling us with Himself. He takes away every hindrance, every bondage, every lie, every weight continuously, daily, forever 🙂


  2. Read this this morning…ties in so well….”THE FACT THAT the inspiration of the Holy Spirit on the pages of Scripture is not dampened by the insecurities of those God chose to pen it is perhaps the greatest testimony to its incomparable potency. After the likes of Adam, Eve, Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, Leah, Rachel, Saul, the woman at the well, the “super apostles,” and Paul, surely we can breathe a sigh of relief that we are not alone in our struggles. Human flesh and blood have no weakness so strong that God’s strength is made weak. He’s got what we need. It’s up to us whether or not we’re going to let the worst of us get the best of us.
