The Contentment of Nothingness

I have no idea how I stumbled on this quote, but it’s one I go back to often when I’m faced with the reality of my own brokeness. Spurgeon addresses the myth we so easily believe that says, “I’m in control, I know what I’m doing, and I can get the life I want for myself.”

“Be content to be nothing, for that is what you are. When your own emptiness is painfully forced upon your consciousness, chide yourself that you ever dreamed of being full, except in the Lord” – Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Is your fullness derived from the emptiness of your human brokeness, or from the fullness of God’s vast beauty and grace?
