A 24/7 Sanctuary

The Daily Prompt:  Oasis

A sanctuary is a place you can escape to, to catch your breath and remember who you are. Write about the place you go to when everything is a bit too much.

When everything is a bit too much I like to be in my church sanctuary especially after a prayer meeting so I can rest in the lingering presence of the Lord.  Being in the sanctuary when no one else is there allows my mind to surrender my emotions to the Holy Spirit in turn I receive a sweet peace, a peace like no other.  This peace goes beyond all understanding and the comfort from it is such that I wish I didn’t have to leave.  But since I don’t live at the church and I can’t access the sanctuary at will  my sanctuary would be at my bedside on my knees.

Although, after thinking about it I would have to say my oasis is not dependent on the place or posture but rather it is the peaceful, gentle presence of my Lord and King!  So I guess my true sanctuary actually is where ever I plug into His presence whether that be on the deck in my rocking chair,  a quiet walk by myself, the church sanctuary, my car, or kneeling at my bedside.  Being a child of the Most High God gives me accessibility to His “direct line”  through prayer.  You see my God is a 24/7 sanctuary!

Check out what others have written about their oasis.
