Whispers, etched in pain but spoken with truth, hope, and encouragement …
Bonnie Gray, the Faith Barista, offers these things to readers of her book Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest. Follow Bonnie on a journey of the soul through the broken places of your past (painful memories you may have buried or tried to erase) to spiritual whitespace, where we can rest together with Jesus.
“Jesus wants us to know there is no place we can find ourselves where his presence cannot reach us.”
Join me this June as I post some of my own photos enhanced by some of my favorite quotes from this thought-provoking, heart-touching book. (Feel free to Pin or share my images.)
You’ll find Bonnie’s Day 5 blog post here.
“Am I the beloved?
This is a complicated question for my heart.
But what good is truth if I am not living it, experiencing it in my story?
Jesus didn’t love us simply with his mind far away in heaven.
Jesus became rest for us. As a person. Not as some idea or concept.
“Somewhere along the way, we stopped valuing the idea of rest. We lost sight of the fact that it’s a critical part of creativity … our health and … our faith. … If you’re tired of being tired, read this book. … If you feel too busy to read this book, then that’s probably the best sign of all that you need it.” Jon Acuff, NYT bestselling author of Stuff Christians Like (From the foreword for Finding Spiritual Whitespace)
