Half Empty or Half Full Does Your Cup Runneth Over

JOHN 10:10
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.

You know we all suffer, my suffering are just different than yours. And I believe a true test can come when we can glorify our Heavenly Father during and in spite of the sufferings we have.

Most people that know me know that I suffer from a variety of medical problems that stemmed from when I had cancer twice 12 years ago. And if I averaged all the surgeries I’ve had that would come out to almost 2 a year for at least 10 years. WOW, that’s a lot of surgeries right, if you add up that’s a lot of time in the hospital and until I submitted my life to Christ in 2009 I didn’t have any hope of joy. I always thought that that’s how my life was just going to be. Half  Empty

In 2009 Jesus changed all that and in stead of looking at the glass as half empty, I started seeing it half full. All because I started living the way I was being taught through Gods Word. I didn’t get it right off the start but I learned that it’s a process, a journey. From this point I started see that the time I had to go to Drs or being the hospital I started seeing as an opportunity to tell people about Jesus and encourage people. I still do this to this very day. This is how I keep the joy of the Lord when I’m sick. It’s not always easy either, but I try to keep in mind the hope I have and others desperately need this same hope, which makes it all worth it. God is really good to me and is allowing me to live a full life for Him

If you have some struggle or burden take it to Jesus and find a believer in Christ that can encourage you, lift you up in pray and let you know that you don’t have to struggle all alone. God Bless You All

    Whether empty or full, if you belong to Jesus, His grace is sufficient for you.
    Sometimes we feel empty ,,, sometimes, better.”His grace is sufficient for us.” Praise The Lord. That is our Father with us.

  3. Your glass my friend is never half full nor half empty when filled with God. It is exactly the amount you need, no more, no less. I know about surgeries though mine for much different reasons. I know of being lost to God because your faith was shattered. Isn’t it a great feeling coming home to the Father and finding He was waiting all that time on the front porch for your return? He is a great and wonderful God indeed. He never heard my curses of his name, my blame laid upon him. He only heard my pain and while I wept so did my Father weep. Praises to him, blessings to you. I liked this read full of hope, love and joy for the life He provides you and the blessing that is the present. /major hugs ~Michelle
