I just spent a week preaching at a youth camp. It was incredible! I hope and pray that the Lord used me half as much as He taught me. It was a HUGE encouragement to watch a friend leading - and not having to lead. I made some great new friends and had some amazing conversations. I was truly blessed by the students who were there from FBC Cleveland (TN, that is). Camp Cherokee was a much needed experience for me.

Now...I'm exhausted!

I don't think it hit me until this afternoon how absolutely wiped out I am.
At some point when you're not paying attention - like a 10 minute window - you all of a sudden get like 10 years older and your body mocks you. Not just physically, but emotionally as well. Like someone pulling the drain plug out of the bathtub. A really old bathtub.

But a GOOD empty!
Emptied so that He can fill me again.

D.L Moody said, "I believe firmly that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and everything that is contrary to God's law, the Holy Spirit will fill every corner of our hearts. But if we are full of pride and conceit and ambition and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God. We must be emptied before we can be filled."

Thank You, Lord. 
Are you taking time to be filled? 
Have you been emptied at all lately?
