I’ve been in ministry for over 10 years and in those years I’ve never had an office. I’ve written in coffee shops, in tucked-away places at a local university library, and at my kitchen table. There was just never room for an office before now.
All last month I unpacked boxes in our new home.
Then it was time to unpack my new office!
I hung a treasured picture on the wall. Richard and I labored over shelves, and my photos and treasured resource books were put in place. I set my printer on the desk, smiling at the thought that it would be easily accessed, rather than housed in a corner in a bedroom closet. I hung my prayer board on the wall, with names of people I love, and scriptures to encourage me as I work.
I am in tears even as I write this, as I sit in with my fingers poised on the keyboard.
Suzie, couldn’t you work just as well in those other places?
Yes, I could, even with distractions and circumstances that made it more challenging.
But what a gift to walk into a room set aside for Jesus and I to meet daily, where my work can also be my worship, with no limitations.
