There were many things that just clicked when reading the book. So many things that seemed more obvious, and God's grace is one of them. Gods grace is everywhere I look, and it's not even that He turned up the flow on the grace faucet, I just finally opened my eyes to it.
Space. I had to create it. Easier said than done... because here's the deal with space... It's unnatural to create room in life when your day has been as condensed as a gluten free, dairy free cake. If you've had one of those mistakes, you know what I'm talking about- no moisture, no nourishment and no fluidity. It's rock hard, dry, lifeless and can't soak anything up. Something has to give- something has to be given up and not immediately filled with something else in it's place OR it must be filled with something incredibly life giving. Only you know what life giving means to you- time with God, time with family or perhaps, just silence.
The other thing about space (consider this a friendly warning), is it's impossible to please everyone that was in your original space. There will be hurt feelings, unsatisfied relationships- work or personal. I don't know the solution to this other than to step up the prayers for mercy and understanding in those relationships and trust that you know the intentions of your heart.
