upsdie down

My God’s kingdom is totally upside down. In the most remarkable ways.

Every time I lose, I win Him.

Every time I win in Him, I lose a bit more of my flesh.

When I empty myself, He fills me with Himself.

When He fills me, I have to pour it out.

I can’t give unless He gives to me first. When I give what He gave me, He keeps on giving back.

When I try to conserve energy, I lose what I have.

When I use what I have, I always get filled up.

When I run on empty, I run on Him.

When I run on Him, I get all filled up.

When I hold on, I lose.

When I let go, I win.


And God, He sees the end before it even starts.

And this is barely the beginning.
