Come Empty: Pour Out Life’s Hurts and Receive God’s Healing Love (SonRise Devotionals, March 2015)
When a water vessel is filled with dirt and stones, it cannot be used to quench a thirst.
But, when this vessel is emptied, there is an opportunity to fill it until it overflows with fresh, cool, life-giving water. Water that quenches. Refreshes. Soothes.
Our souls are the same: filled with fear, doubt, and disappointment. Running over with unanswered prayers and lingering questions. When we empty the mess of our lives in the presence of God, we’re offered an invitation to come. An invitation that allows us to come empty – so that we can be filled until we overflow.
Come Empty: Pour Out Life’s Hurts and Receive God’s Healing Loveguides you through fifty days of experiencing the fullness of God’s love and His ability to overcome life’s hurts. Each day, you will receive assurance of God’s presence in your difficult situations. Each devotion gives new vision and perspective when you’re hindered by emotional blind spots, and leads you to experience God’s peace and wholeness. When His invitation is accepted, He will set your captive mind and heart free to live fully by His grace. The question is not if you will get an invitation. The question is, will you come?
My opinion: This book really speaks to the soul. It is so easy to feel overwhelmed and discouraged, letting issues in our lives clutter our lives, I know it is something that I struggle with and this book really addresses that and talks about working to empty those things out of your life over a period of 50 days. I like how the book broke into daily readings that were totally manageable and so very encouraging. I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
