Running on Empty? The Holy Spirit's empowerment comes when we step into the forward motion of God's love flowing through us--not backwards into our comfortable shell!
A time comes when we just don't have anything left over to give. We run out of faith, energy, strength, patience, options, peace, joy, ideas, and even love. So when God's call comes knocking and our resources seem thin, we tend to hole up and hide from the needs of others. But that's exactly when God's greatest blessing is within a single step, according to Jill Briscoe. He's asking us to obey, senseless as it may seem.
