Creating Space

John 14:2 “In my Father’s house are many rooms.” Our church’s theme for next year is “creating space for God” and our pastor chose John 14:2 as the core verse. Last Saturday when he announced it at our Town Hall gathering, I felt like God himself shot an arrow right through my heart. I’ve been struggling with how much I should clear my schedule and my headspace so I can focus on helping my dad in the coming months. I feel guilty that I haven’t been around in Seoul for my dad, but I also feel guilty when I start clearing my commitments to others here in Singapore. “I need to be there for my family. I need to be there for my church. I need to be there for my colleagues.” I’ve also wondered if creating space might demonstrate a lack of faith… more guilt. But after hearing about next year’s theme and meditating on it for the last week, I feel God speaking clearly this morning. I am to create space for my father on earth, and in so doing I am making space for my father in heaven. The directive is clear. I’m going to let the Spirit lead day by day, but I’ll likely take a break from posting here for a season. I can’t thank you all enough for praying for me and my family. Heavenly Father, I thank you for being so good. I thank you that you still speak to us today. I nail the spirit of guilt to the cross and declare that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. In your son’s name, Amen.
