Smearing the windows....

Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap;....consider the lilies, how they grow, they do not toil or spin; but I tell you now, not even Solomon in all his beauty was adorned like any one of these. Seek ye first the Kingdom of GOD and the wealth of HIS righteousness, for wherever your treasure lies, there you shall find your heart. ( paraphrasing Luke 12:22-33) Store up many treasures in heaven.

In other words, trouble yourself with not how to empty yourself, place yourself in HIS hands, persevere in your faithfulness come what may, in the times good & bad and HE will give you your heart's desire.
