The Genius of Collecting Emptiness

Generally speaking, in life, would you prefer something to be full or empty?

In most areas of life we would prefer something be full rather than empty. It’s better to have a full can of soda, plate of cookies or gas tank … than an empty one. When it’s your birthday you would rather your Facebook or Instagram timeline be full of birthday wishes … rather than empty. And what about Thanksgiving or Christmas? Would you rather have a house full of friends and family … or a quiet, empty and lonely house?

We tend to prefer fullness over emptiness.

And listen, God is all good with fullness. He wants you to have life and have it to the fullest.

But there are times when God prefers emptiness.

Sometimes emptiness is the only thing God can bless.

In this short message I spend some time talking about the importance and genius of collecting emptiness.

 

One thought on “The Genius of Collecting Emptiness

  1. Todd, your messages always inspire me beyond what I am able to comprehend. I am going through a season in my life that was filled with sadness and loneliness. I decided to give it all to God, and am in the process of transferring everything to my new trust, “The AM Global Initiative.” The A stands for Aden and the M stands for Maggie, my two precious grandchildren.

    The more I give and the more painful relationships I move away from, the more I am able to hear God’s plan for me. I have reached out to you through other platforms but will try this one too. I would greatly appreciate meeting with you if I knew your schedule of where you are speaking.

    I attended a giving seminar at WaterStone in Colorado Springs and they provide wonderful advice to Christians who want to give more to God. I know we can work with them to achieve more for the Kingdom of God. As a result of this seminar, I am starting my third blog, LegacyfortheLord.blog in addition to EmbracingLife.blog and DogTales.blog. Legacy for the Lord will be devoted to stories about gifting and faith and this message inspired my first post about to be published.

    Please contact me at 623-694-8049 if you are interested in working together for God’s Glory in the gifting program.

    Brenda Miller, your sister in Christ
