limited or limitless....24/7

so having been a big fan for many years of 'American Idol,'
i am always thrilled to see people who've graced their stage,
like Chris Sly or Mendesa,
head in the direction of Christian music recording!
so i was listening to Chris' new song,
one of my favs right now,
and thought about the lyric....
"empty me of me, so i can be filled with you."
so it got me thinkin....
do you have to take something out of yourself
in order to add another component of God???
i concluded...yes and no....
in our flesh, we are extremely limited,
as if confined to a small box or something,
unable to escape.
but in our spirit, the spirit of God,
there's ALWAYS room for more of God
and we don't have to lose something
in order to get it, Jesus paid that cost already.
i've always thought, based on the word,
that we chose each day to "walk in love."
my mistake was thinking it was a daily thing you
said to yourself or prayed in the morning
and went on with your day...
i've found i have to actually chose it
every second of the day, over and over again
and actively seek peace each minute i truly want to have it!
