Daily Grace

Sep 15, 2020

Have you ever felt empty? Loneliness, disappointment, dissatisfaction with life, fear of an unknown future. We all feel some sense of emptiness on this side of eternity, and sometimes, our emptiness can cause us to feel despair or beyond God’s reach. Today, we are joined by Nancy Guthrie, and she reminds us that emptiness never stopped God from doing His glorious work. We can even see the theme of emptiness traced throughout the Bible! And what we see is this: God does His best work with empty.
