What makes a fire burn
is space between the logs,
a breathing space. – Judy Brown
In the midst of full and fast rhythms of life in which we find ourselves constantly surrounded by noise and demands, it is hard to make space to be with God. Without space for God there is no air, there is no life, there is no fire burning in the soul. There is no light within to guide us and sustain us.

A carefully cultivated heart will, assisted by the grace of God, foresee, forestall, or transform most of the painful situations before which others stand like helpless children saying 'Why?'Dallas Willard
But those who suffer he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them in their affliction. ‘He is wooing you from the jaws of distress to a spacious place free from restriction, to the comfort of your table laden with choice food.’Job 36:15-16 NIV
