|I shared these thoughts at a recent women’s meeting.
We made these fun cups to remember it by.
(dollar store cups, sharpie, 450 for 30 min!)
Most of the time, it seems like I can’t get through the day without copious amounts of coffee. Yes, I know. I have coffee issues. Work in progress!
Lately I’ve been thinking about how much more I need to live each day filled by the Holy Spirit. I feel dry and thirsty most days, dragging my feet.
Can you relate?
Every morning this week, pray and ask for the Holy Spirit to fill you as you prepare for a new day or as you enter into a sensitive situation or conversation. I don’t know why it’s so hard for me to remember to do this. But when I do, it makes such a big difference!
- In yielding, you are emptied of yourself: solitude, silence, prayer, fasting, simplicity, giving, serving silently
- In yielding, you draw close to Him: studying the Word, memorizing scripture, through song and music, praise, fellowship, sharing our stories
This yielding is a sacred and beautiful aspect of the life of a believer.
It is the act of pouring out and filling up.
It’s like breathing.
It is being the woman at the well and choosing to throw out anything that doesn’t satisfy and eagerly receiving an abundance of real life and satisfaction in Jesus.
Pray for that filling, clean out your cup, and yield your life to Him as He fills you with an abundant life in the Spirit!
