Come Empty~

Wow and wow~ God is so good. This devotional came to me just when I needed it. Right, smack dab in the middle of a heavy trail~ I open my mailbox to find this devotional.  Dr. Sandra Dalton-Smith is an internal medicine physician who has taken her experience with all kinds of illness from broken bones to broken hearts and writes Come Empty.  It is written in short devotionals dealing with all kinds of issues~ 80 in total. It can be read in order or by topic. 

Most times I review a book and then pass it on to someone I know that will enjoy it as much as I do. As you can see~ the minute I opened the book this was the first devotion I opened to. God spoke right to my heart. I felt like God had given  Dr. Saundra just what I needed back when He gave her the message. When God led her to write this devotion ~ I know He had me in mind.  

Each devotion touched my heart and encouraged healing to my weary mind and soul. I want to personally thank you, Dr. Saundra, for listening to the Holy Spirit as you pinned these devotions for the empty. You have been a blessing to me in more ways than one. 

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 Love guides 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?
