The Space Between

by Kevin Litchfield

I have shared this quote from Jim Branch before, but I feel led to share it again. Jim talks about the time Peter walked on the water to meet Jesus. “There is one particular aspect of this story that has been a wonderful source of reflection for me lately. It involves that sacred space that Jesus invites Simon Peter to step into.

It is the space  between…

Between the boat and Jesus…
Between letting go and being taken hold of…
Between the old and the familiar and the new and unknown…
Between control and agenda and dependence and detachment.

It is the space that is both completely terrifying and unbelievably exciting.
It is the space before your answer has come or your problem has been fixed.
It is the space where you must trust the heart of God alone for your life.
It is the space of genuine transformation.”
