Create the Space

As I dropped my daughter off to volleyball this morning I decided to take a walk first down by Morningside Park instead of sitting inside Tim Horton’s. As I was walking along the trail I was reminded once again to “Create the Space”.

Let me give you the story on that.

On Saturday, July 23 I decided to take a walk down by the Frenchman’s Bay area. Walking is something that I have been enjoying for about 3 weeks now. It helps me to clear my head and also give me time in the presence of the Lord. Sometimes I walk with my husband as well.

But this particular morning I was walking early because I had made plans to meet up with a girlfriend for brunch. Before I left my house I did my devotion which proved to be interesting. As I was reading Jeremiah 36 the word “Write” popped out at me. I didn’t think it strange because I knew that it was something that I should be doing, but wasn’t really doing. What really got me is when I read the word “Write” 5 more times. “Oh boy” I thought and off on my walk I went.

There is something wonderful about nature that I love. It’s the smell and beautiful colours of the flowers, the birds, squirrels they all just seem so happy. The sounds are breath taking. If you listen closely you can hear the wind as it passes by the trees.

I wanted to go down by the water for I love to hear the sounds. On that day I didn’t make it down to the water. As I got closer down by the bay area I began to veer off to walk this path and charter on new territory. In a still small voice I heard “Create the Space”. I hadn’t gone on this path because it didn’t have a paved pathway and to add to that it was surrounded by a lot of big trees and tall grass. I was thinking what if something jumped out at me; so glad it was morning and the sun was shining every so brightly. As I walked I continued to hear “Create the Space”. Which instantly brought me back to my devotion early that morning. Which then brought me to the little area in my room where I had put a desk, chair and computer. As I get to the middle of this graveled path the sun was very present. The trees were no longer as high and you could see the branches and the many birds perched.  As I walked into this space the voice that I heard became very clear as He spoke “Create the Space” the birds in sync flew up in the air singing, the wind blew and I could hear and feel it on my skin. I knew instantly what I was being told. I got a vision of the space that I was supposed to create. I stood there in this space and was in awe of the God that I serve. Tears began flowing down my face.

Create the Space

 

The space that you must create will help you to begin the process of writing. Feel free to use the outdoor space that was created to begin this process. No matter the space that you choose to create you will write in it.

Feeling Unsure

Sometimes I just ‘feel’ unsure. I want to do this but I just can’t.  It’s almost like I am afraid of myself and the potential that is within me. I start- then I stop, then I begin all over again. Sometimes there is just a pause. This could be one of those times. I make some head way and then…. that’s just it and then nothing. To write or not to write is the question. So much written and still yet so much more to write. Sometimes it feels as if my mind could explode. Just begin the process, just start, easier said than done. Let me just get myself together gain some composure and then start again maybe this time I will get it write. Truth be told I won’t stop until I do. In a couple of weeks I will come at this hard. Just wait for it. Unsure or not I must seize the divine moments that are before me taking one step at a time.
