I have had this thought that I have needed spiritual practices and routines that guide in this. A deep longing to find our center in Him. To live and breath and move from there.
Brother Lawrence speaks to me at this stage.
In comments, messages, and emails some have referred to our recent years as a desert period. That we are currently finding our way out.
We have had many thoughts on unceasing prayer and 24-7 prayer.
Last night Heather asked me about Kathleen Norris and her book Cloister Walk. I became excited. I pulled both copies off of my shelf and we read the first few pages together.
Shortly after Heather was given the word tabernacle. She was reminded of a conversation with my sister. The emotions she felt in the conversation more so than the ideas discussed. We discussed what that was. Dots began to connect. His voice coming through. More and more clearly. Signposts leading to more signposts.
Over the years Derek and Amy's blog, thebearablelight.com, has been a source of wisdom and guidance. This morning I was thinking of tabernacle as a tent, something used along the way, but then as a circus tent. Something bigger. I thought to search tabernacle on thebearablelight and found a post called The Enormous Room. I want to quote so many points of it but the whole thing just speaks to me. Resonates so deeply. I wanted to share.
