Five Minute Friday: Empty — 31 Comments

  1. Thanks so much for this reminder to look at and clear out the mess cluttering up my soul. He longs to fill us, but as you say it’s necessary to be empty first!

    Thanks too for popping in on my five minutes this week. Lovely to have you! 

  2. Barbie, I liked your words “I must get out of the way.”  Oh, how often I get in His way . . . these words will linger in my memory for a long while.  I’m going to practice getting out of the way!

  3. Amen to that root pulling: I know I need it…and praying that it doesn’t hurt too much…actually He already has started…really like how you expressed it…Blessings to you, Barbie 🙂

  4. ” … in order to take in more, I must first empty myself. ” It’s a paradox, isn’t it? To receive the fullness of Christ, we must be poured out ~ emptied. It took me so long to take my emptiness to the empty tomb. I am so grateful for the fullness we have in Him alone. Beautiful words today, Barbie. Just beautiful.

  5. Yes, friend. striving to get out of the way of my own self to let Him take over. Empty me, God…so You can fill me back up again…
    thank you!

  6. Wonderful,  Barbie. Yes, praying that He would pull me up by my roots and make me more like Him, and less like me. Amen, my sweet friend!
