Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me so I can be filled with You.
— Chris Sligh “Empty Me”
yeah he was on American Idol — but that’s not the point. I honestly don’t listen to much Christian radio except for when I am getting ready in the morning; in between my shower and blow-drying my hair. I just happen to like the KLOVE morning show.
So, this song, “Emtpy Me” has been speaking to me since its been on rotation the last couple of weeks. If there’s anything that God continues to beat me over the head about – it is laying down my pride.
The eyes of the arrogant man will be humbled
and the pride of men brought low;
the LORD alone will be exalted in that day. Isaiah 2:11
What does God use to show you where you need to get a clue? Apparently He uses former Idol contestants with me.
