Lent is about reflection and drawing closer to your Savior. Prepare your hearts for the coming Lent season with Saundra Dalton-Smith’s Come 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 atWomensBibleCafe.com

My review:  If you are going through a difficult or painful season Saundra’s book will give you encouragement to move forward. Saundra beautifully articulates the hurts that our hearts endure as we walk through this life. She writes as one who has endured times of pain and suffering.

This 80 day devotional breaks down the struggles of this life (one topic each day). After pouring out how one’s heart hurts with each trial Saundra shares how our Heavenly Father speaks to our heart. Scripture, going deeper questions, and a prayer finishes up each devotion.

Saundra understand how one feels when enduring the darkness this world offers on a daily basis and gives hope and healing for a weary soul. I would recommend this 200+ page devotional for anyone walking through a difficult season of life.

I would give this devotional 4.5 stars

Pain is universal. It crosses gender, race, socio-economic status, and education. Pain does not discriminate. Pain is real and it can be debilitating. Come Empty (page 13) by Saundra Dalton-Smith       

The problem with pain is it demands to be relieved.       Come Empty (page 24) by Saundra Dalton-Smith
