A Barren Place

A barren place
             in the center of His will
    is not a place of nothingness,
a hole of desperation,
an empty silence,
an unresolved mystery
but where
   there is room for God's glory
                         to be manifest.
All that precious stuff of our lives
is moved aside
that there would be space
           for His great designs
and elbow room
           for God to work.
We desire to fill.
God desires to fulfill
                        with purpose.

The LORD will fulfill
      His purpose for me.

                 Psalm 138.8
