Are You Empty?

“I firmly believe that the moment our hearts are emptied of selfishness and ambition and self-seeking and everything that is contrary to God’s law, the Holy Spirit will come and fill every corner of our hearts; but if we are full of pride and conceit, ambition and self-seeking, pleasure and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God. I also believe that many a man is praying to God to fill him, when he is full already with something else. Before we pray that God would fill us, I believe we ought to pray that He would empty us. There must be an emptying before there can be a filling; and when the heart is turned upside down, and everything that is contrary to God is turned out, then the Spirit will come…”
— D.L. Moody
Oh, how God is working in me this week. Painful, soul searching, heart aching work. But it is good. It is God. It is surrender.
It is no coincidence that our church began its’ 21 day fast this week.
 It is no coincidence that S is gone to overnight mission camp and M is gone to day camp.
There are no coincidences with God.
It is all about surrender.


Surrendering: 
my children
 my husband
my home
 my desires
 my life
He is building the foundation for a new chapter in my life, our lives.
It is frightening
It is insecure
It is unknown
It is God.

    I so enjoy seeing God perform a great work in someone I love!

    May we all be empty today, my friend.

    May we empty ourselves every day to make room for the Great Carpenter to reconstruct our hearts and our souls.
