I've had a to-do on my phone for about 3 months to write about the importance of creating space. #irony
A dear friend wrote to me the other day - with pen, paper, and stamp - and asked me about my focus for 2019. It got me thinking. My first thought was that we all sure need friends like that. My next thought was that I'm not sure I'm ready to let go of 2018's focus on creating margin. I think it's a meditation that needs refinement, but not one
- surplus (abundant lives certainly have plenty!)
- play (I like this one - there has to be play in the system to have room to play. heh.)
Light, space, zest—
Hurry and help me;
I want some wide-open space in my life!
I’ll wait as long as he says.
Everything I need comes from him,
so why not?
He’s solid rock under my feet,
breathing room for my soul,
An impregnable castle:
I’m set for life.
Give me space for healing, and mountain air.
He stood me up on a wide-open field;
I stood there saved—surprised to be loved!
So I think another year of letting God teach these truths to my heart is in order.
"Margin." I'll let that word be my meditation for 2019.
