I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about how necessary it is to be filled before giving to others. If our bucket is empty, we don’t have anything left to give.
It’s so hard sometimes to take a step back and allow ourselves to be filled, or to even acknowledge that we need it. Sometimes we just want to be self-sufficient, and it takes a lot to admit that we can’t do it alone.
But we’re human. We can only do so much. We only have so much to give. How wonderful it is to serve a God who isn’t limited, whose grace never runs out, but He continually pours it over each one of us.
He fills us so that we, in turn, can fill others. I am so thankful for that.
