But now what?
Now that the last drop is gone, the "jar" which is Carrie is completely empty--now what do I do? Now I have a choice. I let God fill me up again, or I keep doing all these same things in my strength. And, seeing as how there's not much strength there (relatively speaking--we're talking about replacing my human strength with the strength of Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Rafa, The Creator of the Universe...) I'm actively choosing to let God fill me again. I know I'll feel this way again, used up and poured out. Why? Because that is why I am filled. God doesn't fill us in order to be happy little jars filled to the brim. He fills us so we can be poured out in the lives of others, edifying the Body of Christ.
Have you been poured out lately?
