In those Spaces between Me and Me…

At times, there is a vast ocean in the spaces between me and me.  I cannot figure out where I begin and where I end.  What do I do with all the emptiness that I find in between?  What if I get lost within me?

There are places where my heart cannot go, battles too bloody for me, spaces where I suffocate.  There is a chasm that no one can cross; pain too deep to explain; hopelessness ready to burst.  And I think I will die.

But You come.

And everything changes.

You become strength for my heart, soundness for my mind.

You fill the empty spaces between me and me.

You are the breath that puts me back together.

You are the life that gives me breath.



Linking up with Faith Barista.



  1. I love this Barbara. There are times when you don’t know how you will go on, when you seem so empty BUT then our Lord comes to the rescue!! He doesn’t always come in “our” timing but He is not too late. It’s unexplainable and yet we know. Thanks. You are an inspiration!


  2. Barb….it’s like you are reading my very thoughts. I’ve been struggling w/ some very difficult situations, and after weeks of trying to do it on my own, I’ve put it in His hands. During those weeks, I felt very alone, and wondered how on earth I could withstand one more day of this torture. But He shines His bright face upon me, and I can finally see. I know that He can and will pull me through this. Thanks, Barb!!!


  3. 2 Corinthians 12:9
    New International Version (NIV)

    9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

    What an awesome Lord, we serve!


  4. So beautiful, Barbara. God has filled some of my spaces, too. I’m thinking of a song, “How could we live without Him?” We wouldn’t actually be “living” would we?
