Come Empty

Saundra's 5-day challenge:

Come Empty

by Saundra Dalton-Smith    


Lent is about reflection and drawing closer to your Savior. Prepare your hearts for the coming Lent season with Saundra Dalton-Smith'sCome Empty. 

Pour out life's hurts and receive God's healing love
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 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.

The secret to healing is time in His presence.
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?

Praise for Come Empty
Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith had me crying at page one as compassion pours out through her words. I couldn't put the book down and wanted to dig deeper into the daily devotions. Resisting temptation, I slowed down and worked through one day at a time for a heart-makeover rooted in Christ. I didn't just read through this book: I prayed through it and journaled my heart. Written in conversational format, the essence is pouring out your heart's cry and listening within your heart for His reply. --- Christine Abraham, Founder and Ministry Director at

My thoughts:  COME EMPTY is  a five minute devotional for women who are weary and heavy-laden. Answering Christ's call to come unto him and he will give you rest, the devotional book is based around this theme. This is not a Bible study book for those who hunger for the word and food, but this is a short conversational form, with "your heart's cry" and "God's answer"  There is also a verse, discussion questions, a one sentence prayer and scripture to read so you can take it a little deeper if you wish. Journaling your thoughts is encouraged. Not exactly what I hoped for, I didn't walk away feeling fed -- mostly I was left disquieted. Some of the answers are feel good style, God answering what you want to hear.  I disagreed with some of the "answers" but this is my opinion only. 4 stars.
