New Space

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Matthew 6:6 KJV

This weekend I painted our son’s old bedroom an inspiring, warm guacamole green. My husband calls it the new avocado green. The room that has been our son’s for the last several years has become “my” room. I have always wanted a room to gather my creative outlets and have them at hand. So here I am at my cool, borrowed drafting table. I was thinking that would be a good kind of desk for me as a writer and creative person. I was at my friend’s a couple weeks ago lending her our table saw, and we talked about Les making me a table for the room, and I also mentioned my desire for a drafting table. And there was hers- unused and stored in her garage. She gladly offered to let me use it! Amazing friend and touching provision from our Creative Father.

So here I sit blogging in this new space. Potential galore. And seeing that I really cannot keep things to myself, I will share this room with guests, as it also has our convertible futon couch in here. I can’t wait to start gathering my supplies and tools in here.

Today as I was dreaming about different purposes for this room, I remembered that I have always wanted two things: a prayer closet and a walk-in closet. I envisioned myself praying in this new space which is like a walk-in prayer closet combined. I’m loving God and His creative providence in my home and in my heart. Hallelujah!

  1. Hi Kel,You have been on my heart. It was such a joy to meet you. I truly felt your heart, and after reading some of your blogs; I see so much more. I love your passion for God. Thank you for sharing your gift of writing. I just completed my personal office six months ago, and It is my “everything.” I find so much peace, joy, and ideas in my special place. It’s my prayer room, thinking room, creative room, business room, devotion room, meditation room and entertainment room. Whenever I spend time in there, God always meet me tin my special place. Saturday night, I was wrapping a few gifts for some of the women at my church. Before I finished, God started flooding my mind with so many ideas to make the gift more personal. I wept while I sat there trying to accomplish everything that He put on my heart to do. I was in my office for 5 hours. I got so much joy putting together the treats that God put on my heart. I really don’t know how they felt about the gifts, but I got so elated thinking about how this was going to make them smile. I passed them out on Sunday, their faces where in shock, but my heart was full with joy.” I pray that your beautiful office empowers you to achieve great things for His glory. I hope that we get the opportunity to get to know each other better. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.God bless you. Lillie Franks
