Journey Through Life:I AM EMPTY!

       I have been feeling so empty inside lately.  I talked to several people and they all told me you need to do something because you can't pour from an empty cup.  I tried every way I could to fill it back up.  It seemed that nothing was working and I just felt worse and worse because I was so empty.
     Then finally someone said to me, "yes you are empty, but you say it like it is a bad thing but it's not."  I was confused but they told me, "you can't fill your cup no matter how much you try."  They said, "Go to the Lord, pray, read His word and let Him fill your cup." She said empty was exactly what I needed to be so the Lord could fill my cup. 
     Sometimes it is not that we are empty but rather we are so full of ourselves, the world and all that there is no room left for the Lord or what He has for us.  I still am not where I need to be and I still fill kind of empty but that is just fine with me.  I have plenty of room for the Lord to fill me up. Right now I am just standing here, saying, Lord here is my cup, I am empty and please fill it as you would.

I am sharing a song that explains right where I am and the prayer I am praying as I wait for the Lord to fill my cup with Him and His will!

God bless Until Next Time,

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
