Creating Space

I have been away for awhile; with family, with school and with a broken ankle!
It is the broken ankle that has also brought me back…

When my ankle broke, I needed surgery with a painfully long recuperation time of sitting on the couch with my foot up!

I am now able to begin to add my life back…

The obvious came back first; being able to take care of myself, able to drive short distances, able to get around in a wheel chair, walker, knee scooter, or crutch.

I am just now able to teach again and walk short distances…

I am an athlete; mainly a runner with a few triathlons in my past and planned for the future. Not able to include those yet…I am bummed!!!

As I am adding back who I used to be, it occurred to me that perhaps I need to create space, or perhaps allow space in my life for adding something new!  Something that has not been in my life before, perhaps something I have never even dreamed of doing…but God has 🙂

I love the word “create!” In the Bible,  Genesis 1, God created space for the heavens, the sky, the land and the sea (Day 1, 2 and 3.)  After that was completed, He filled in that space with the sun, the moon, the stars, the animals and man (Day 4, 5 and 6).

What I am really  fascinated by, is that while God was doing all that “stuff,” He was also creating space in my life! At the time of creation, He was already thinking about  me…and…He already knew what would be filling in this space.

What is this space filler?  I have no idea; but I can “feel” something trying to make its way into my life 🙂

Walk with me, as I search or perhaps just allow this space to be filled.

What about YOUR life? Are you creating or allowing space? How is it being filled?
