He has satisfied the hungry hearts and sent the rich away with empty hands. ~Luke 1:53~

My Child,

>If you try to pour water into a bucket that's already full, you'll end up spilling the water all over the ground. There are so many blessings I want to pour into you--the joy of an intimate relationship with me, the wonder of true worship, the adventure of facing new challenges with faith. I designed you to contain all of my gifts through my Holy Spirit.

But it's hard for me to pour anything into you when you come to me so full of other things--other worries and concerns, other people and possessions and passions. Set aside everything that concerns you, my child. Come to me empty so that I can fill you with my Spirit, my blessings, and my life.

The Life-giver,
