From Empty to Overflow: Overflowing

From Empty to Overflow: Overflowing

There is great power behind The Lord pouring into our lives abundantly more than we could hope or imagine. It’s in the overflow. According to Merriam Webster, overflow can be defined as, “to fill a space to capacity and spread beyond its limits”. 

All of us are limited to the extent of action or changes we can make alone. But we have a limitless God who has the power to move and flood the open spaces for His glory to reign. We have opportunity to overflow into the lives of others when we’re filled by the spirit.  

Your seasons in the driest desert were set to serve purpose in your season of overflow. 

You’ve sought. You’ve learned. You’ve been spiritually refilled.

Now, what do we do with our gift of overflow?

When we’re fully convicted by the depth of His grace, mercy, and unrelenting love, our hearts become capsized bursting with passion to love and serve others with the same gifts given unto us. 

“May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.” 1 Thes 3:12

How can we display an overflowing love? 

Maybe you begin tithing; freely giving financially because you’ve recognized His dollars multiply further than your own. Maybe you push past your comfort zone by intentionally loving and including someone outcast or isolated because of the love you’ve experienced when you felt alone. Maybe you have a greater tenderness in your heart to give grace for others' mistakes and extend forgiveness because they helped your own healing take place. 

Friend, if you’re in a season of overflow ask The Lord how He can use you and where He wants to use you. Just watch His love flow out through you as you pour into others’ cups.

PRAYER:
Lord Jesus, we thank you for the gift of overflow. We recognize that it can only come from you alone. I pray that you would guide my sisters and show them the way in which direction you want them to share in their cup that overflows. May you magnify their gifts and let it all be for your glory. Amen.

Dear Sister, we’ve got you covered! My HOPE for the women who will attend the Wheat + Honey retreat in 2024? Jesus, we believe that whoever is meant to be at this retreat WILL BE THERE. Each year, you are faithful. Each year, you bring the women that need deep refresh, soul rest, and a meaningful reset. With the theme of “KNOWN”, we agree that you want these women to feel seen. All they have to do is show up to the weekend, and you will do the rest of the work! What freedom and comfort that b...

Women from different places, walking in different stages ~ unlikely community? WATCH IT WORK. You’ll bond over vulnerable small group discussions (some may even name their small group squad ~ you know who you are LOL), lounging at the beach club and laughing about who gets the worst sunburn, sitting cozy out on the porches commiserating about the dating app scene (a big yikes), or watching an extraordinary Watercolor beach sunset sharing so much gratitude. Seeing the women that attend experie...

Is it you…Dreaming of a Fulfilling Break from Reality?

Are you dreaming of a fulfilling break from reality? Imagine this…First steps on the beach revealed bright white sugary sand against the shimmering emerald waters of the Gulf. Breathing deeply, eyes closing, soaking in the delicious salty air aromas. Digging my toes into the warm sand, grounding myself in a delightful way. Letting the sun kiss my skin in a long awaited reunion for this pasty gal, lol. Hearing the crashing of waves, the buzz of laughter, and the soft tones of chatter. Feeling ...
