Sanctuary: Fruitful Vineyard

Sanctuary–

1 : a place (as a church or a temple) for worship

2 : a place of refuge and protection

Meditating on the beauty He’s created and the power of His words…


Isaiah 27:2-5 (The Message)

“At that same time, a fine vineyard will appear.
There’s something to sing about!
I, God, tend it.
I keep it well-watered.
I keep careful watch over it
so that no one can damage it.
I’m not angry. I care.
Even if it gives me thistles and thornbushes,
I’ll just pull them out
and burn them up.
Let that vine cling to me for safety,
let it find a good and whole life with me,
let it hold on for a good and whole life.”

 

 


 

What’s your sanctuary this week? What thought, verse, etc. are you meditating on?

  1. I love the simplicity of a definition. I love definitions…words to feed on. And Scripture…food for the soul. And a photo…a feast for the eyes. Thanks for the encouragement. (stopping by from Still Saturday) Kel

    • Kel, thanks so much!

  2. God has been speaking something similar to sanctuary to me for more than a year. Oikos -- home, family, temple. This year I’ve heard some distinct derivatives -- Dwell and Abide.

    • Powerful and beautiful words! Thanks Cheryl.

  3. Where I live the vineyards are starting to turn gold and yellow and they are very beautiful as the mountains change with the season.

    • My wife and I were in Northern California a couple of years ago and we just drove around the vineyards and drank in the sights--so amazing! That’s when I took this picture actually. I would love to visit again. We just loved it. Thanks Sharon.
