The devotional is broken into sections, which allows the reader to begin with the area she feels she needs to turn over to God and allow him to fill that emptiness. Each day has three sections; 'Your Heart's Cry', 'His Reply', and 'Going Deeper Questions'. Dalton-Smith doesn't just put her spin on things, but encourages the reader with Scripture, too. The verses are sources of truth, hope, and encouragement. In addition to the verses, Dalton-Smith gives the reader a passage of Scripture to look up and read prior to completing the 'Going Deeper Questions'. The content of each day is very rich, yet it isn't overwhelming. Whether you are hurting, discouraged, in a drought with your walk with Christ, or seeking to experience a heart-stirred relationship with our Savior, you will find that Come Empty is a terrific resource.

About the book:
Come Empty: Pour Out Life's Hurts and Receive God's Healing Love (SonRise Devotionals, March 2015)
When a water vessel is filled with dirt and stones, it cannot be used to quench a thirst.
But, when this vessel is emptied, there is an opportunity to fill it until it overflows with fresh, cool, life-giving water. Water that quenches. Refreshes. Soothes.
Our souls are the same: filled with fear, doubt, and disappointment. Running over with unanswered prayers and lingering questions. When we empty the mess of our lives in the presence of God, we're offered an invitation to come. An invitation that allows us to come empty --- so that we can be filled until we overflow.
Come Empty: Pour Out Life's Hurts and Receive God's Healing Love guides you through fifty days of experiencing the fullness of God's love and His ability to overcome life's hurts. Each day, you will receive assurance of God's presence in your difficult situations. Each devotion gives new vision and perspective when you're hindered by emotional blind spots, and leads you to experience God's peace and wholeness. When His invitation is accepted, He will set your captive mind and heart free to live fully by His grace. The question is not if you will get an invitation. The question is, will you come?
