Have you ever had those days, weeks, or seasons where you just flat out feel empty? Sometimes you can recognize what took the wind out of your sail (hectic schedules, life altering situations), but other times it’s just there — emptiness.
I wish I had a cure for the emptiness and a wand I could wave that would exempt us from that feeling, because feeling empty is a dark place to be.
Have you been there? Are you there now?
One thing I’ve learned is that during those times we experience emptiness, we can be patched up and healed through a deeper dig into God’s truth, love, and word. And while we dig in it’s the diligence of keeping our eyes on God and His blessings that help fill the hole.
This week I received the invitation to my son and daughter-to-be’s family wedding shower. Talk about pure joy and excitement, as well as a little momma tear!
What an incredible feeling, as I was pulling up the registry to purchase wedding gifts for my son.
Ah yes, the emptiness is subsiding as I think of all I am grateful for. Pure love coming down to fill that empty hole.
What blessings are helping you fill the emptiness you might be feeling?
