negative space #FeatureCreep

I’m sad to see this series go, but oh my, I am so thankful for how God used it in my life.  I have seen such an impact in my practical life – cleaning out, fall pruning my schedule and life – but also in my heart.  I’m so thankful for how aware this message has made me as I look at the cares and things that dog at my feet, as well as the sin that so easily entangles.

Thank you sweet heart for teaching us.  We’re all stronger and better because of you and because of your faithfulness to preach the Word, in season and out of season.

Here are some of my notes from this weekend ::

“It’s not stupid to keep things simple.”


The space you leave lets things breathe.

When you cut back the excess, you see the precious.

It’s not just about stuff, but about people.

Subtraction is actually a form of addition.


“people come into your life for a reason, for a season, or for a lifetime.”

“the goal is negative space, not being around negative people.”

My biggest questions for this week is :: What needs to be subtracted from my life?  What is he wanting to take away that I’m reluctant to let Him take?
