It may be late but it is still Thursday!!!
Welcome here, pull up a chair, a cup of tea and your copy of Finding Spiritual Whitespace.
This book has the potential to be a game-changer for many of us. If you’ve followed my blog at all you may have noticed a theme over the last few months. I have been in a place of anxiety, stress, worry, fear and fog. While I have tried to hold close to Jesus’ hand it hasn’t been easy to do that. I haven’t been able to articulate what the struggle has been. Reading Bonnie Gray’s book shone a light in some dark places and slowly, things are beginning to change.
Whitespace is something my heart has been craving for some time, I just didn’t have words for it. So we’re on this journey, my family and me, to carve some out. To get to a place of rest and healing. We’ve been a traumatized, stressed out troupe for a long time now.
My invitation to you is to journey together. I am going to attempt to spend Thursday’s here seeking out His crazy grace through the pages of Bonnie’s book. Will you join me in finding soul rest? I have no idea what it looks like but I hope I recognize it when I find it.
Introduction and Chapter 1
We begin with the back story that birthed the need for Finding Spiritual Whitespace and begin the journey to understanding what it is our soul craves.
If you’ve read the first chapter I am curious what your impressions were, what were the things that struck you first. I’ll begin;
- I could relate to her feelings of numbness, I don’t know when it happened, but I stopped feeling deeply at some point as a defence against the constant barrage of stress.
- I understood the fear of failure that she talks about on page 28 – am I failing somehow because I don’t feel free even though I know all the right answers?
- I can’t make rest happen.
- I want to be awake and I want to be free.
