five minute friday: empty

On Five Minute Fridays, we link up with The Gypsy Mama and write for five minutes flat.  No editing, no spell-check, no over-analyzing of words,  just pure writing from the heart.  Join us? 


Days like yesterday leave me feeling completely empty.  So full of myself that I am just void of Truth.  So focused on the world that bitterness and anger seep so far down in my heart that no Light can shine through.  So attacked by the Enemy that I have trouble seeing Jesus.

Empty.  Void.  Blank. Vacant.

That accurately describes how I felt yesterday.  Empty and sick of myself.

But, it also accurately describes how I feel today. 

However, today, on the way to work, I asked God to empty me of me.  To help me pour out all of myself so that I could be full of Him.  

I heard this verse in my spirit after I got out of the way......

"Who will separate us from Christ’s love?
Will we be separated by trouble, or
distress, or harassment, or famine,
or nakedness, or danger, or sword?...
But in all these things we win
a sweeping victory through the one who loved us.
 I’m convinced that nothing can separate
us from God’s love in Christ Jesus our Lord:
not death or life, not angels or rulers,
not present things or future things, not powers
or height or depth, or any other thing that is created."
Romans 8: 35, 37-39
