  1. Amen! We give and give, and forget we also need to refill! I have often found myself struggling to give loving advice or to be patient, until I realized that I had let myself run out of God’s abundance, and was therefore “shriveled up”. As Joyce Meyer puts it, “We can not give what we do not have.” God’s word and His presence are a very real daily need, our “first and vital necessity” (1 Chronicles 28:19 AMP).

  2. In Courage,

    Just like our bodies need water/refreshment to keep from becoming dehydrated-our souls need refilling also. We need to take time each week to read the word, pray to God & listen to His voice. Then we will be filled to the brim & able to bear much fruit. If you are struggling or like a shriveled prune then reconnect to the vine. Take time today to be with God & meditate on His word. You will be so refreshed.

    Each week I make time to connect to the vine by listening to Christian music, reading Bible, & listening to sermons. Then I go out & assist Loaves & Fishes Food Bank doing whatever they need. We help needy in our community get food & lots of God’s love poured out to them.

    Blessings 🙂
