The same week that I wrote about not having all the answers, burnout, and being a fellow-traveller on the journey to flourish, I found another fellow-traveller in an unexpected place.
Between the pages of a book I found someone who is also looking for fellow-travellers on the journey to create space and find rest. Not just lay-your-head-on-a-pillow rest, but deep spiritual rest, spiritual whitespace.
I’m in the process of reading Bonnie Gray’s book Finding Spiritual Whitespace: awakening your soul to rest and already I’m encouraged to see rest as something deeper and more profound than I’d previously considered it.
Here’s just one of many quotes I’d like to share:
Making room for spiritual whitespace takes us on a journey to awaken our hearts to God again.
Sounds more than good to me.
The photograph on this post is of those wetlands I was longing for the other day. Yes, I found some space and it was very good.
How do you feel about finding spiritual whitespace and rest?
