Five Minute Friday: Fill

A day late this week, but jumping onboard with Five Minute Friday. This week's word is fill.

Running on empty. Sometimes this is  how it feels like life is being lived. We've gotten to the point where we're just going through the motions - doing what we know we should be doing, but with no heart in them.

It's easy to end up here in our spiritual lives. That place where we got to church, read our Bibles, pray because we should. But they've just become things we do.

The good news is that we don't have to stay in that place. We can ask God and He will fill us. He will fill us with His love again and with a desire for that deeper relationship with Him.

And when God does that, we're no longer left feeling like we're running on empty. We're filled with what brings us real life.


  1. Stopping by from FMF. Good reminder here. Thanks. :)

  2. Visiting from Five Minute Friday. This holds so much truth! I often find myself more by the running on empty rather than filled by God's grace and joy. But it's always a journey! And God is there every step of the way.

    1. It always is a journey. Very thankful God is always with us. Thanks for the comment.
