Running on Empty
Empty me, empty me, fill me with you, with you -Jeremy Camp
You know those days that you feel like you have an empty “tank?” The days when you are exhausted and feel like you’ve given all you have and don’t have anything left? Those are the days where you need to appreciate the “little” things. I recently had a student stop into my office and instantly my mind went to “how can I help her?” “What can I do?” Well you know what? She didn’t NEED anything she just wanted to ask me what God was currently teaching me and what I was learning in my devotions.
Fill the Tank
WOW…Right before break is always a time of exhaustion and anticipation of the Christmas season, but what this student did filled my “tank” to get me to the start of break and a time of relaxing with family and friends. I don’t know if we really know the difference we can make in someone’s life, even small reminders, to make sure we are focusing all we do on Christ and constantly wanting to learn more about Him.
This student reminded me that what I do is important and that I need to make sure I am continually filling myself with Christ so that I can pour into my students. I am so thankful that I get the wonderful opportunity to speak into others! I hope I can challenge each of you to speak into others and not forget to fill your own “tank” with Jesus so you can share Him with others in all you do!
