The magic that margin unlocks

The magic that margin unlocks

Do you remember the childhood days when boredom was a constant companion, and the world stretched out before you like an open canvas waiting to be uncovered?

 

Now life exists within the constraints of busy days and filled calendars with not a minute to spare for us to experience boredom.


Yet…As we navigate the busyness of adult life, we often lose sight of the magic that margin unlocked for us as a child… A chance to create, explore, ideate, dream, and experience greater joy. 

 

Challenge yourself this week to take small, but mighty steps to create windows of opportunity to restore some of this wonder back into your life.

 

Schedule pockets of 'fun time,' set boundaries on your commitments, or plan activities with those who bring joy into your life.

 

Give yourself permission to embrace stillness rather than distractions.

 

Perhaps this intentional margin could bring about greater rest, a deeper sense of renewal, restored joy or even the beginning of something wonder-filled?

 

“He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.” Psalm 23:2-3

 

Prayer: Lord, restore our sense of wonder, joy, and adventure. We confess that we have created busy lives with no room to experience the gifts you’ve given us.  We’re often blinded by our busyness to even see the gifts you’ve surrounded us with. As children, we never imagined missing the days of boredom and now we long again for more of those quieter days, greater freedom with time, and a restored soul. Help us to make wise choices with our time, rediscover the gift of the Sabbath in our lives, and loosen our grip on control so that we might make room for us to experience more of You and your goodness.

Jesus, we know that you have created us with such intentionality. You give us different gifts for unique purposes for your Kingdom. It’s so incredibly sweet to know that you call us by name and desire for us to walk in confidence according to your will for our lives. Help us to recognize these gifts in one another and call them out! We love you. Amen.

What has been the most moving surprise is how guests connect with one another.Thank you, Jesus, for the women you guide to these weekends and the meaningful friendships that result from it.
