Running From Empty

Iím entirely ready
To have God remove
All these defects of character
And my life will surely improve
I was empty but now I am full

I was blind but now I see
And the world around me waits
See what happens to this heart
As I grow in Jesusí traits
I was empty but now I am full

Healing and hope are now my friends
And life is so worth the living
Love is starting to enter in
As I learn to be forgiving
I was empty but now I am full

Lonely without a family tree
That I could claim as my own
Recovery got hold of me
Now my heart is no longer stone
I was empty but now I am full

Now I see that God is good
And He loves me more than I know
With Jesusí loving sacrifice
There is nothing that I owe
I was empty but now I am full

Healing often takes some time
But I have found serenity
Take a deep breath say a quick prayer
View life with more acuity
I was empty but now I am full

The road to recovery
Full of hope and some laughter
Gives me a reason to dream
And a goal to chase after
I was empty but now I am full

Running on empty sounds like so many of us when we don't know Christ personally. I would rather have Jesus then anything. Keep up the good work. Thanks

Oh boy! Even after I received Christ, I sometimes allow myself to take over and end up running on empty. It's good to be reminded to have Christ in full control every minute of every day.

Lovely poem. I think we all need to stop in for a fill-up sometimes. Thank you for sharing.
