From Empty to Overflow: Refill

From Empty to Overflow: Refill

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been trying to be accountable to drink more water every day. On the day-to-day I know I’m guilty at times for forgetting to drink enough. But when we’re REALLY thirsty or dehydrated we certainly prioritize grabbing something to drink as we’re desperate for relief. 

What about when our spirits have run dry, and we’ve decided we’re finally done with running on empty? Do you reach for Jesus to refill your cup?

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” Romans 15:13

“I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.” Psalm 81:10 

We have a beautiful promise from Jesus that He will fill us back up and refresh our spirit by giving us peace and joy. First, we’re instructed to take action by trusting and remaining open so He can flow in. 

What does it look like to have Jesus meet you where you’re at to show up and refill you back up?

Maybe it’s a peaceful morning sipping coffee in your favorite comfy chair and spending quiet time with The Lord. 
Saying no to opportunities that steal your peace. 
Time spent with all distractions and devices removed. 
Maybe it’s even an extended sabbath and creating space for a season to reignite your passion and reason.  

Whether it be the smallest drop of water to the entire gallon, we should pray with intentionality by inviting Jesus in to show up, and in confidence trust He, as promised, will fill back up our cup.

PRAYER:

Lord Jesus, we thank you that you are our source of refill. We praise you that by seeking you we will never remain empty, but that we can find refreshment when our spirits run dry. I ask that you would speak to the hearts that need you to come and refill. Lord, bless them with a quiet place and some space for you to flow through. Amen.

Letting go of my “boast list”
Letting go of my “boast list”

April 10, 2024

Turns out that like Paul, I’m not as “good” as my spiritual “boast list” makes me appear. I had misunderstood the beauty of the gospel- that salvation is based solely on the goodness of God, not the goodness of me. It is God’s grace that produces good works in us, not the other way around. Friend, let this truth dissolve any stock we have in our ability to produce a spiritual “boast list.” It’s been a humbling journey to let go of my “boast list,” but the grace of Jesus is so much better to h...
