Heart is Empty, Eyes are Full

What does it mean to have an empty heart? I think that it means life without feeling of belongingness. I think that it means questions without answers. A sense of loneliness that nobody is there for you. Well if you feel or have ever felt empty I want to show you that you are NEVER alone. John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” What this means is “Jesus brings God's presence, protection, and guidance.” He will always be with you, protect you, and guide you. How awesome is that?

I also wanted to share another passage of the bible to you. Genesis 24:16, 17 “The girl was very beautiful, a virgin; no man had ever lain with her. She went down to the spring filled her jar and came up again. The servant hurried to meet her and said, Please give me a little water from your jar.” When dealing with an empty heart we need to realize both physical beauty and internal beauty. In the above passage “Rebekah had physical beauty but the servant was looking for a sign of inner beauty. Appearance is important to us, and we spend time and money improving it. But how much effort do we put into developing our inner beauty?”

Genesis 35:26 “And all the women who were willing and had the skill spun goat hair.” I think this has a major impact on our sense of belongingness. God has given you gifts and is concerned with the quality and beauty of the work you do. “Your work should reflect the creative abilities God has given you.” Go out there and use the gifts God has given you. Be a leader, join a community of people with similar gifts, or just be content!

When your heart is empty and your eyes are full remember that God will protect, and guide you through it all while he is right there with you. God made you therefore you are a beautiful person inside and out. Last but not least each and every single one of you has God given gifts and talents. Use them and you will be amazed at the positive change it will have on your life!
