make us feel empty





and our souls echo back

the sound

of hopelessness


But You, God

You are FULL


You are everything

You are abundant

You are plenty

and overflowing


Your Fullness

replenishes us

with grace

upon grace

upon grace


because we need it, Lord


We need the Full

that You give willingly

to the ones You created



Our empty

is met

with grace



and we become beings

overflowing with the love

that You gave us




– Susie Stewart


Out of His fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.

– John 1:16 (NIV)


The heart overflows in the words a person speaks; your words reveal what’s within your heart.

– Luke 6:45 (VOICE)


When I think of the greatness of this great plan I fall on my knees before God the Father (from whom all fatherhood, earthly or heavenly, derives its name), and I pray that out of the glorious richness of His resources He will enable you to know the strength of the spirit’s inner re-inforcement—that Christ may actually live in your hearts by your faith. And I pray that you, firmly fixed in love yourselves, may be able to grasp (with all Christians) how wide and deep and long and high is the love of Christ—and to know for yourselves that love so far beyond our comprehension. May you be filled though all your being with God himself!

– Ephesians 3:18-20 (PHILLIPS)


For God in all His fullness
was pleased to live in Christ,
and through Him God reconciled
everything to Himself.
He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth
by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

– Colossians 1:19,20 (NLT)
