Creating Space – By Jon R. Roebuck
God created space from chaos, choosing to carve out space for all living things. God created space for the sun, moon, and stars, as well as space for the oceans to form and for the dry land to appear. God created space for plants to flourish, for animals to roam, and yes, even for man to dwell.
And in God's image we are gifted with the ability to create space for all living things, including people who may not always feel included in our space or in God’s. We have the ability to make space for things to happen, for lives to thrive, for relationships to bloom, and for people to find wholeness.
