An empty heart is quiet and feels nothing–as if numb. You think you cannot go on and you really don’t care anymore for you are weary–spent.
There is so much hope for you, for you are in the best position to be filled!
For there is room for Me.
You see, when one is casting about–struggling with feelings, thoughts and emotions, I AM just more noise in the midst of their chaos.
I lead My sheep beside still waters that they may drink.
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want; he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.” Psalms 23:1-2
You cannot drink in the midst of your struggle. You must be calmed, quieted. For you to be filled, I must be welcomed–invited.
Empty out that I may come in.
Releasing all the turmoil, struggles and fears to immediately receive My Peace, Comfort, and Hope is like exhaling to breathe again.
Fresh Air–No more despair.
The exchange that must be led by you.
For I do not force Myself upon you; I wait for you to realize that you need Me. I lead you to a quiet place, then offer you a drink.
“As a hart longs for flowing streams, so longs my soul for thee, O God.” Psalms 42:1
Fresh water–the substance of life; It is and–
“How precious is thy steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings. They feast on the abundance of thy house, and thou givest them drink from the river of thy delights. For with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light do we see light.” Psalms 36:7-9
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10
“Teach me thy way, O Lord, that I may walk in thy truth; unite my heart to fear thy name. I give thanks to thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify thy name for ever.
For great is thy steadfast love toward me; thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.” Psalms 86:11-13
