The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
John 10:10 (Amplified Version)
What am I full of? Is it the joyful, abundant life Jesus spoke of in the scripture above, or is it something else?
I'm learning fast that being full of other's whims and opinions will not bring that life. Caring so much about what other people think to the point that every bit of communication thrown my way feels like an attack will not bring that life; it will push it away.
I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately. I'm asking the Lord to refill me with all that I used to be full of before too much stress and pain pushed it out. I'm also asking Him to help me empty out all that takes away from the life He wants me to live. Only being full of the Spirit of God and all the wonderful things that go with it will truly put my broken life back together. I want to be full of life, love, and joy. May I stop swallowing the bitter pills of this world and start feeding on the words of the Almighty.
But he (Jesus) answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Matthew 4:4 (King James Version)
