We All Have Hurts From Life ~ Come Empty Deals With That

Come Empty

This is a simple devotional book that can be done pretty much by anyone. The devotions are short, but  point you to something you can think about as you go about your day. Since there is not a human who has not suffered and dealt with pain, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, there is something in this book for you.

Each devotion starts with "Your Heart's Cry", a situation you find yourself in, feelings, emotions, physical pain, a struggle you are dealing with. It is followed with "His Reply", addressing specifically how you can let go of that pain and frustration by focusing on what it is God can offer you and work through you in your daily life. It's a way to refocus your thought life. There is a section at the end "Going Deeper Questions" followed with "A Simple Prayer".

Some of the devotions are deep and thought provoking, but most of them I found rather simple and basic. It would be a good book for a new Believer who is just starting to get a grasp on how God can work amazing things in their life. For me, I would like the devotions to be a lot deeper and more of a specific focus on a passage of Scripture.

About the book:
When a water vessel is filled with dirt and stones, it cannot be used to quench a thirst. But, when this vessel is emptied, there is an opportunity to fill it until it overflows with fresh, cool, life-giving water. Water that quenches. Refreshes. Soothes.

Our souls are the same: filled with fear, doubt, and disappointment. Running over with unanswered prayers and lingering questions. When we empty the mess of our lives in the presence of God, we’re offered an invitation to come. An invitation that allows us to come empty – so that we can be filled until we overflow.

Come Empty: Pour Out Life’s Hurts and Receive God’s Healing Love guides you through fifty days of experiencing the fullness of God’s love and His ability to overcome life’s hurts. Each day, you will receive assurance of God’s presence in your difficult situations. Each devotion gives new vision and perspective when you’re hindered by emotional blind spots, and leads you to experience God’s peace and wholeness. When His invitation is accepted, He will set your captive mind and heart free to live fully by His grace. The question is not if you will get an invitation. The question is, will you come?
