Annotation

A guide for readers who believe that their resources are overextended explains how when we are most overwhelmed, God's greatest blessings are nearest, inviting Christians to open themselves to the empowerment of the Holy Spirit in times of stress.

Summary

  • Running on Empty? The Holy Spirit's empowerment comes when we step into the forward motion of God's love flowing through us--not backwards into our comfortable shell!

    A time comes when we just don't have anything left over to give. We run out of faith, energy, strength, patience, options, peace, joy, ideas, and even love. So when God's call comes knocking and our resources seem thin, we tend to hole up and hide from the needs of others. But that's exactly when God's greatest blessing is within a single step, according to Jill Briscoe. He's asking us to obey, senseless as it may seem.

    God has given us what we need to fill up when we run low. It’s the incredible gift of Himself. In this engaging book, Jill Briscoe guides you to a source of ample sustenance. Even as you empty yourself, the Holy Spirit will fill you. And in giving yourself away, you will find life.
