Empty or Full

Without prayer, we will forever find ourselves vacillating between being empty of energy or too full of ourselves.

— Ronald Rolheiser —


What does it mean to be too full of ourselves?

I know I’m too full of myself whenever I am anxious and easily irritated–two states that empty me of my energy.


In addition to my morning ritual of dying to self and letting Him in, I often go to a place in our woods that brings my mind and spirit to a meditative state. I go there when I am way too full of myself.


How’s your energy?

What are you full of these days–yourself or Him?

What do you do to ensure you are full of the right fuel?

Ephesians 3:19, “and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
