The Writer

I was at Bible Study this past week and one of my friends said “How is your book going?” I thought to myself – how did she know I have always wanted to write a book? After a few more questions, I realized she was talking about this blog! 🙂

I have missed posting. I have missed the quiet times I can sit and reflect. My days have been filled with quirky. It has taken longer than I anticipated to feel settled, but hey – what else is new! The finding of the house didn’t go as expected, yet it is perfect for us. The kitchen is certainly not being re-done as easily as we thought, but the end result will be awesome. DH has done such an amazing job with it.

I am finally getting back into a routine of my quiet time, which I have so sorely missed. However, today I wanted to share with you the words of a song I heard. It is called “Empty Me” by Chris Sligh. I hope they speak to you as they did to me:

I’ve had just enough of the spotlight when it burns bright
To see how it gets in the blood.
And I’ve tasted my share of the sweet life and the wild ride
And found a little is not quite enough.
I know how I can stray
And how fast my heart could change.

Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me so I can be filled with you.

I’ve seen just enough of the quick buys of the best lies
To know how prodigals can be drawn away.
I know how I can stray
And how fast my heart could change.

Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me so I can be filled with you.

Cause everything is a lesser thing
Compared to you, compared to you.
Cause everything is a lesser thing
compared to you. So, I surrender all!

Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me so I can be
Lord empty me of me so I can be filled with you.
Oh, filled with you.
Empty me.

  1. My prayer also in these “draining” and sometimes wearisome days of “doing” and not “being.” Love, Mom Meints
