Full: containing or holding as much or as many as possible; having no empty space; not lacking or omitting anything; complete.
What are you full of?
I don’t mean this in the negative sense, such as saying someone is “full of it”. But I mean what is your mind full of; what do you think of most often; what do you give all your time to; what do you make space and time for; what are your priorities? The answer to these questions is the answer to what are you full of.
We are all full of something. Whether it’s work, family, some kind of entertainment, or hobby, or whatever, we all fill our lives with something. Maybe it’s multiple things, but really dig in your mind. What do you give most thought and time to?
I know we all have busy lives with full schedules and an overwhelming To Do List. I know we all feel maxed out and overwhelmed. I know we are full of lots of things, but the number one thing we should be full of is God.
We should be filling our lives with Him. We should be consuming scripture daily, and making time for church, worship, and prayer. We should be filling our minds with things that would please Him, and doing things that would please Him. We should be giving Him our firsts and our best, not the scraps.
So let me ask you today, what are you full of? Is it God, or is it something else? I know responsibilities are overwhelming, but God needs to come first on the schedule.
When we give Him our first and best, God honors that. He can and will give you peace beyond understanding and overwhelming joy.
Press into Him, give Him your first and best each day, and see how it changes things. Go on and try it. I dare you!
