Book Description

We all find ourselves living with the harsh reality that
life is hard and life hurts.
We continually demand that life be fair,
yet we’re well aware that it’s not.

Life can leave you at a loss for words. It has a way of suddenly casting you into the darkness of doubt. In these desperate moments, you find your soul being drained dry . . . you’re empty . . . and faith just doesn’t seem to matter anymore. Faith loses out when you realize that God could have done something . . . and He did nothing. Your life is further emptied when you realize that even if you live the “Christian” life, things don’t always turn out the way you’d like them to . . . and that’s not the way you hoped faith worked. You don’t want God to comfort you in your troubles . . . you want Him to take them from you.

As God continually frustrates our faith with His constant inconsistency and ridiculously draining unpredictability, we resolve in the truth that He is the only one that truly understands our hurting hearts, empty lives, and searching souls.

We find the ongoing trials of life continually
draining us and . . . we’re thirsty.
Yet, through our endless efforts
to quench our undying thirst, nothing satisfies.
Our souls seem to be insatiable, and we know
we desperately need something to fill us, completely . . .
but it’s not what we think.

You’ve been waiting for God to show up,
yet He’s actually been waiting for you.
He’s ready to meet with you . . .
one on one . . .
at the well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emptiness Fulfilled! December 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Empty...we've all felt it, but do we all know how to truly fulfill that feeling of being empty? Cherie Hill knows & her new book, "Empty" will help you fill up your emptiness with God's truth & promises. You will go from endlessly searching how to self fill your emptiness to the many ways God's waiting to fill it for you :) You WILL be encouraged with statements such as, "God ALWAYS gives us more than we can handle, in order to reveal what He is able to do through our faith in Him." and "He wants to bring about miracles that go far beyond our imagination." How, you may ask? It's all in the book & I promise once you start reading it, you'll start filling up your emptiness in ways you never imagined. You'll view your emptiness in God's eyes & not your own. You'll learn that, "every obstacle is an opportunity for faith to rise above it." Don't believe me? Read the book & see for yourself, you'll be glad you did! I know I am! Thank you Cherie Hill for once again giving me hope when my hope starts fading! I have been truly blessed by ALL your books & I recommend EVERY single one of them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thirst no more December 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The book, Empty, summarizes the deep emptiness that all humans feel. We are empty for a reason. If life was good and easy, we would have no need for hope, for salvation, for God. The emptiness leads us to God who is the only one who can truly fill us. He created us with a thirst that only He can quench.

There is a lie that we have believed, "God will never give you more than you can handle." This is not Biblical, and the author dispells this myth by telling the truth from God's Word. Life is hard, and we will have trouble. That is the truth.

I am impressed with Cherie's insights. I did not know that the longest recorded conversation of Jesus was between him and the woman at the well. He talked with this un-named woman and promised that the water he provides ensures that she would never go thristy again. How refreshing! I need draw from this well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Sharing March 19, 2013
By Mary
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is one of the most direct, in-depth, powerful books I have ever read. I think I have purchased four copies as gifts for others. God truly spoke to me through this writing, meeting me right where I was and giving me exactly what I needed.

I found this book, despite its promise, to be much like a lot of others. You just need to do more, think differently, etc. I don't believe it engaged the subject with any depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Job Well Done! February 24, 2013
By Mike
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is another very well done book by Cherie Hill on allowing God to quench your thirst when you are at the low point of life or at the point of your life being "empty."

A couple of quotes really got my attention:

"The most famous last words before God shows up are: I have nothing. Put many other ways: I can't go on. My pain is too deep. I am empty."

" As long as we're empty God can flow through us. Grasp this truth: Emptiness is not the end. It's the beginning."

This is a good book to start with if you've never read anything by Hill. If you have read some of Hill's other works, I recommend you read this one too.

God has given me the great joy of spreading His Word around the world through And even though I have a BA in Psychology and I'm trained in Biblical Counseling through the AACC . . . it is truly God who has qualified me, through my daily surrender, as I walk intimately with Him one day at a time.

In the most amazing journey of my life, God has seen fit to make me an International Bestselling Christian Living author. More miraculously, I've been ranked #4 in Bestselling authors for Amazon in the Religion and Spirituality category. Truly, God still does miracles. (It's ONLY by the grace of God that I am who I am. 1 Corinthians 15:10) In the words of Charles Spurgeon, "My books are my tools."--the tools that God has seen fit to take my pain and use it for His gain. All the glory goes to Him.
