Empty // Five Minute Friday — 12 Comments

  1. Barbie, thank you for being so vulnerable. I believe God meets us in our vulnerability and amen, love covers a multitude of sin. Keep pressing into Him and He’ll give you enthusiasm for life when it’s time. Love you, sweet sister.

  2. Oh, Barbie, I can so identify with you. Sometimes everything just seems so overwhelming, but we can take it to the cross. He will hear us and He will comfort. Yes, we will still mess up and we will still feel overwhelmed at times, but we know that He loves us and will never leave us. May He draw us close and fill us with his comfort.

    Blessings and hugs to you, dear Barbie! xo

  3. Amen to this! I love your honesty and realism which is just what I needed to hear. You are not alone with those feelings so many of us walk this road feeling empty and void. I love how you bring it all back to God to satisfy every longing. Yes!

  4. Thank you for sharing your vulnerable heart! If we would face the truth, there is an emptiness inside each one of us. Your words here are so true: “As I reflect on the empty tomb, it gives me strength to face my own emptiness.” And, it’s because He’s risen that He has the strength to fill up our own weaknesses. May the Lord bring great blessing to your heart, and comfort to your soul!

  5. Thank you for being transparent and sharing your heart. This is such an important reminder that only he can fill my voids and satisfy my longings. I pray that you have a blessed Easter.

  6. Ah, Barbie, you are right: we must go to the feet of Jesus. In Him we live and move and have our being. I’m praying for you tonight. I’m praying that you will awaken with a song singing inside of you… before you even put your feet on the floor. Not just tomorrow, but morning after morning. And when it comes, sing it. Hold on to it all day, no matter what. The Lord tells us that His joy is our strength. May His joy (not yours) fill your heart to overflowing. Hugs to you, dear sister ! #7 at FMF this week.
