Do you ever feel empty? Like your “cup” is dry and you’ve got nothing to give?

That’s how I felt this past week. empty + BLAH!

If you really want to know, there were a couple of days that I didn’t want to get out of bed! BUT…that wasn’t my reality. I had places to go, people to see, phone calls to make, laundry to fold, family to care for, and the list was LONG…

…just like yours, right?

While I was doing life on empty, driving home from my son’s hockey game (I LOVE watching my boys play hockey!) I listened to a song that FILLED MY CUP! The words brought encouragement to me + a smile to may face and my heart.

The song, The words I would say, by Sidewalk Prophets, lit me UP, gave me hope, and energized me. It was like getting a hand written letter in the mail from a good friend. I thought, maybe, just maybe you could be encouraged by the message too, wherever you are today, these are the words I would say:

Three in the morning and I’m still awake
so I picked up a pen and a page.
And I started writing just what I’d say
if we were face to face

I’d tell you just what you mean to me
Tell you these simple truths

Be strong in the Lord and
never give up hope.
You’re gonna do great things
I already know
God’s got his hand on you so
don’t live life in fear
forgive and forget
but don’t forget why you’re here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say

Last time we spoke you said you were hurting
and I felt your pain in my heart
I want to tell you that I keep on praying
Love will find you where you are

I know ’cause I’ve already been there
So please hear these simple truths

Be strong in the Lord and
never give up hope.
You’re gonna do great things
I already know
God’s got his hand on you so
don’t live life in fear
forgive and forget
but don’t forget why you’re here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say

From one simple life to another
I will say
Come find peace in the Father

Be strong in the Lord and
never give up hope.
You’re gonna do great things
I already know
God’s got his hand on you so
don’t live life in fear
forgive and forget
but don’t forget why you’re here
Take your time and pray
Thank God for each day
His love will find a way
These are the words I would say.
