Do you ever feel like you’ve been poured out? That you have nothing left to give, and still the world comes needing more. But it’s more than you have to give? Do you feel empty somedays? You just need something, but you aren’t quite sure what it is…
The Lord is near to all who call on him, Psalm 145:18 NIV
Here I find myself need to be refilled, and here I find myself drenched in His love and mercy.
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5 NIV
I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. Psalm 81:10 NIV
It’s ok to step back, to regroup, to find a quiet place and plug back into Him. To take a moment to breathe and refill your cup before charging back out into the hustle and bustle of life to fill others empty cups. Somedays we need someone else to fill ours, and that’s ok. That’s what we are here for, but don’t stay on the sidelines. We were never meant to be just an empty cup on a shelf. Refill, and get moving. Life is far to short to do anything else.

Absolutely beautiful when we are able to completely exhale all the stress and inhale the joy.
