To be filled with the Spirit, we MUST be emptied of self! ~ FHE idea - use plastic wrap over empty pitcher to represent selfish things blocking the Spirit trying to enter in our lives (water unable to fill pitcher)
So true! It's so nice to know that when in prayer all you can do is cry, the Lord knows the words every tear holds and when you feel you've said nothing, you've actually said more than mouth full of words could ever say! God is good!
Jesus loves me despite the fact that I fail Him everyday. Such a poignant truth. Stumbling over our flesh only proves we cannot do this Christian walk on our own. Thank You, God, for sending Your Son to hold me up. I cannot stand on my own.
