Fill Me

Last week I was talking with a friend about an experience I had. One of those revelations you get, but decide, for some stupid reason to not put in to practice. I told her about walking to the pantry with the mindset that I wanted a snack, even though I had just had lunch. I stopped for just a second and asked God to ‘fill me so I wouldn’t do it’… and He did. And I was surprised. What a lame Christian I am. Still doubting after all He’s done.

Before I could finish she was jumping off the couch and heading down the hallway with a quick, “I’ll be right back.” Seconds later she hands me a book, “Made to Crave” by Lysa Terkeurst. I scanned the cover, thought, “Oh, I like that cute red fridge” and then read a page… I liked it. I had to read it. I bought my own book just days later. I can’t put it down.

I’d love to go on and on about the book and tell you what all I’ve marked, highlighted and repeated to others, but I’ll let you discover your favorites from the book if you decide to read it. What I will tell you is that now I realize that ‘silly experiment’ was just a glimpse at what’s possible in our everyday lives if we’d just… ask.
