I am sitting here in the overflow of a beautiful encounter with the heart of God. Over 100 men and women gathered in our small sanctuary to sit before the Lord and hear him sing over us. So many hands prepared food, and tables, wiped tears and held up the weak. Hands that lay limp were gathered into hands that had felt the strength of the waiting…the Kabod…the glorious intertwining of God, and…we…waited. We waited and were woven as individual threads in a grand tapestry of grace. It was then that I heard it, ” I go to prepare a place for you”. Abba is all about space, all about place and placement. In his upside-down inside-out kingdom where the wisdom of this world is foolishness, and the weak are strong, he has made room for me, in him and through him. Room to live out of his life and into the everyday in vibrant abundant joy.
Lord, help me to go with you to the caverns of my heart and let you fill the empty places with all of you, that my life might be a place prepared for the fullness of your love.
