Training for Your Soul – Creating God Space
Choose a place that feels comfortable and safe, a place that allows you to be open and available to God.
Settle into a comfortable position in your body and sit quietly for a few moments, breathing deeply,
becoming aware of God’s presence with you and your desire to be present to God.
Sit quietly at the base of the tree that is your life and begin to notice what is true about you these days.
Don’t rush or try to make anything happen. Let your soul venture out and say something to you that
perhaps you have a hard time acknowledging: Is there a particular joy you are celebrating? A loss you are
grieving? Are their tears that have been waiting to be shed, a question that is stirring, an emotion that
needs expression? Sit with what comes into your awareness, becoming conscious of God’s presence with
you in that awareness. Don’t try to do anything with what is being revealed except be with it. Feel the
difference between trying to fight it and letting God fight for you. What does it mean for you to be still and let
God fight for you in this particular area?
Practice this way of entering into solitude regularly until it becomes a routine for you to begin your times in
solitude by being quiet and letting your soul come out and then rest in God’s presence. You will likely be
surprised at what your soul wants to say to God.
