Good afternoon! It's been a busy morning; but now I'm getting ready to do one of my favorite things...and that is to spend a few hours alone with God.
One thing I've been reminded of lately; is that we can't help ourselves or pass hope along to someone else, if we are empty within. Think of it this way...when we have gas in our vehicles; they will take us anywhere we want to go but when the gas gets low; then we need to fill up the tank, so we can continue on our way. In a similar way, when we are empty spiritually, we will never have the fuel to keep us going through the difficult times.
If we want to experience God's presence, while walking down the difficult roads of life; then we need to be filled with His presence...and from there, we can draw from His wisdom and strength. Never go on empty...for it won't take you anywhere!
