Facing our Struggles: Finding our Sanctuary
We experience troubles from not being able to find the remote, to a loss of a loved one, from a toothache to a car accident, each day arising to the world full of faith or sometimes full of fear.
No matter what awaits you today, remembering to look for a spot, a sanctuary, has gotten me through the hardest of times. Sanctuary is not a place that just shows up, it is a place you have to go to. Sometimes it is a quiet place, others times it is a place of fond memories, or sometimes it is a place that is inside you. (like closing your eyes in the middle of an arguement)
I can`t say that I do this enough...but every time I go and seek that place, I never regret it. I always look back saying to myself, "I am so glad, I took the time to go there." Somedays I find God in that place, somedays I find myself when I feel lost, other times I even find the answers I am looking for, but most importantly I can find rest.
So I encourage the weary of heart to look for a sanctuary and go there and take hold of that rest, and may the Spirit of God meet you there.
