Sanctuary: Search Him Out

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…


Jeremiah 29:12-14 (NASB)

Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’


Reminder: The Warrior Poet Circle returns tomorrow and we’re writing honest poetry from our spiritual passion so I hope you’ll come, share your heart, and maybe express yourself in a little different way. If you have a poem to contribute, come and share it with everyone. If not, read what others have written and I know you’ll enjoy it. The link widget will be here Monday morning. See you then!


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

  1. Wonderful, reassuring verse. I’ve been thinking a lot about my (spiritual) heart condition lately. I write about traveling lighter, traveling with a light heart. Stepping lightly in this world, looking toward the Lord. Looks like you have an interesting blog.

    • Thanks so much, Maureen. I appreciate your sharing your thoughts.

  2. Beautiful picture and awesome verse, I love that one. It speaks of our reaching out and HIM reaching back to us.

    • He is such a loving Father! Such a privilege to know and love Him back. Thanks Sharon.

  3. That is so beautiful! Where in the world did you take that photo? I’m looking at the image and reading that verse and I can feel my soul settling down, breathing deeply…

    • That was at the end of May at my kids’ beach day field trip. That’s about 15 minutes from where I live! We are so blessed. And I can feel the settling too and I am grateful. Thanks Deidra.

      • Gorgeous photo, Jason. And 15 miles from home! Awesome.

        • Yes, we are so blessed! Thanks Jennifer.

  4. It’s a wonderful promise. And I so desire to walk with Him and obey Him… over and over and over again. Because I can trust HIM for the results.

    Love the photo, BTW.

    • Amen. And thanks so much, Joanne. :)

  5. A picture like that could draw me to Alaska, but reckon I don’t really need it since that is one of my dreams. :) “To be found by Him” What greater thought could there be?
