"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

RUNNING ON EMPTY



These past couple of weeks I feel I have been running on "E." I am just dragging not only physically but spiritually. I feel I have been beaten down.

I pray what this song shares for myself and any out there who are experiencing the same.


Why am I such a dusty window
For your light to shine through?
Why am I just a tiny star
In a sky already blue?
Why do I offer everything
With my heart closed like a fist?

I want to love You better than this

Why do I live like I'm in chains
When You have set me free?
And why do I have to break Your heart
Before I fall to my knees?
I know it's time to pray for change
Give all I have to give
I want to love You better than this

So renew me
Remake me
Undo me
Unbreak me
Come into the empty spaces
Of my broken places

And consume me
Complete me
Pursue me
Redeem me
Let Your Holy Spirit living through me
Renew me

I need Your power to renew me, Lord, yeah
I need to know You're moving through me, Lord

I need You as my refuge
My first and last resort
Be the river always running
Through my deepest thoughts
Keep me in Your arms
'Cause even when I drift
I want to love You better than this

So renew me
Remake me
Undo me
Unbreak me
Come into the empty spaces
Of my broken places
And consume me
Complete me
Pursue me
Redeem me
Let Your Holy Spirit living through me
Renew me

My life bending to Your will
Seeking You until I'm more and more like You

  6. I hate it when I feel like I'm running on fumes. Don't give up. Just rest in God's love and you'll float out of this dry place soon enough.

  12. Hi my sister in Christ,

    It is so hard when God seems so far away. I know people say that it us that moved away and not Him. But when we are running on empty and have no motativtion to come to Our Lord, we don't know how to move back. My sister, just surrender. God doesn't help those who can help themselves. That's was no where in the bible. That was a saying in the farmer's almanac maybe only a hundred years ago that caught on. God came to save the sinner, those who can't help themselves. My prayer for you is to just step back and be, let God do the rest.

    Love your sister,
    Amanda
