If the Lord has allowed my emptiness, then, He cares for me. I have not been overlooked nor dismissed. If the Lord has made me empty, then, it is His intent to change the content of who I am. He has a new and better work to do within the deepest parts of my heart.
A disobedient vessel cannot be changed. A distracted vessel cannot be changed. A vessel full of selfish ambition cannot be changed. A vessel who loves most in the wrong direction cannot be changed, but an empty vessel, it is ready for a sanctifying work.
It is prepared to be filled with all that is holy. It is singularly focused on Him. It loves its Creator the most because it is solely dependent upon the mastery of His hands.

Many times they have persecuted me from my youth up; yet they have not prevailed against me. Psalm 129:2
