Happy summer weekend! It’s been quite a week. You too?
There’s just SOMETHING about the weekend. Because. You know. There’s Sunday and I just can’t get enough RED DOOR CHURCH (RDC), a sanctuary. We all need a sanctuary for the soul, no matter how self-sufficient you and I profess to be.
The word and concept of sanctuary is not used as often as it used to be. Even so, I think it’s more crucial than ever. There’s a deep need within to have a sanctuary, a sacred oasis, in this big hot mess of a world.
I guarantee you this . . . there are moments . . . when the need for a sanctuary is realized. Sometimes we ignore the need, and just keep on with the stuff of life. I’m stating this out of understanding. I’m a work in process. The power of it all can be. too. much.
I get how easy it is to step around the need for sanctuary, to fill up the time with the urgent details and demands of life.
Here’s what I can tell you for sure: When the moment comes to step back into the sanctuary, there will be a shift within as sacred peace, grace, and love without demands or explanations is experienced. There always is.
At the same time, being a part of the sanctuary is as important to the soul as receiving from it. It takes all of us to be the sanctuary—connecting with God together. When you and I are a part of SOMETHING beyond our limits, giving God’s gifts of peace, grace, and love to one another, there will be a strengthening within. There always is.
The journey of life will never be complete without a sanctuary. It’s truth.
I pray you experience SOMETHING more for your life
in the sacred light and love of the sanctuary—
I would love to connect with you:
