Give Up - Fill Up - Give Out!
Fleta R. Robinson

The Christian life is meant to be a life of giving but giving to God comes first.

Anxieties about oneself and situations, disapproval of others with accompanying self-pride, these must be given but to God. Allow Him to empty out what is unlike Him. Give Him our willingness to be freed from a critical spirit, from disbelief, and wrong attitudes. Believe it or not, He accepts these raunchy "gifts"!

A cleansing takes place that creates a unique emptiness God delights to fill "with joy unspeakable and full of glory!" Circumstances may change, they may not, but "in His Presence is fullness of joy."*

Are you worried, depleted, overcome by physical illness, or overwhelmed by problems that seem too big to solve? Does bitterness nibble at the edge of a relationship? Give it to Almighty Sovereign God, and allow Him to fill you with Himself,

with His amazing grace

with His love and peace.

Do that this very day.

Only then can we live a life of true giving to others 

"Though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor . . . 
and have not charity
[cherishing others] it profiteth me nothing."

(I Corinthians 13:3 KJV)

* Psalm 16:11
