God Whispers Things

And the LORD will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail. Isaiah 58:11

Sometimes God whispers things in the dark and silent moments between breaths.....and prayers. I was feeling so dry this morning. As dry as toast. Hollowed out. Like someone took my dreams and hopes for the future and blew them away with a puff of air.
I know I have Heaven.......I know what awaits me is better than anything I can imagine. I have nothing but hope there. But I need hope now, and for the rest of my life. Hope that it will all work out. Hope to fill in the holes.
He whispered........"Those holes and empty places you feel? That fear of the future? Those holes are all the better for Me to fill."
Sometimes He does empty us out so He can fill us with Him.
The reason I know it was Him?
It was still
It was small
It was immediate
And it put my fears to only He can.


  1. I know exactly what you mean. Living in the dry Phoenix desert, we know what it means to be thirsty. I love to spend time with the Lord in the early morning hours. I find I'm more aware of His silent whispers during my day.

    blessings and love,

  2. Beautiful! "Sometimes He does empty us out so He can fill us with Him"

    What a calming, reassuring point of view for the empty and dry soul. Oh to be filled from that well of living water.

    God Bless You!
