word prompt: FILL
I ride on empty for so long
Then some little thing happens
To remind me
That I’ve stopped feeling.
I’ve been trying to be a robot so I don’t have to feel anymore.
No, I don’t want to be this way.
It is just a bad habit.
Worse…sinful habit. There, I said it.
Bad habits + overcommittment =lack of feeling
It might be better to say, lack of paying attention to feelings,
Ignoring nudgings from the Spirit,
Living like I care what poeple think.
When my goal is to live like I care what GOD thinks. STOP
But some days it is easier to shut down and go numb
Rather than feel.
It is easier to run on empty
Rather than admit to my Father
How empty I am.
How much I need His filling.
How much I need His grace.
How much I need to change and
Admit my need for Him.
Even though he loves me in the middle of my mess!
He just loves me too much to let me stay there.
Thank you GOD that you love me that much!
