Sometimes we don’t realize just how much we have. There are times we feel empty, and there are times we are filled. The thing I’ve noticed though, is whether we are full or empty, it’s always for a reason. Sometimes it’s easier to trust this than others, but it’s seemed particularly true lately.
I’ve been emptied out, so that I can understand and show compassion to others.
I’ve been filled, so that I can pour out those same blessings into others. We comfort with the comfort we have been given, and I am so thankful for this truth.
I don’t always understand the ups and downs in life, but I do know that God is faithful. We can share more fully in joys and sorrows when we ourselves have been there. And God knows this, and He allows this. He is always faithful, and He will redeem everything, whether we are full, or empty.
What truths are you trusting today?
