UPDATE: As of April 21st, The Sanctuary leadership has decided to continue pausing our regular Sanctuary-sponsored events until our local town & state government deems it safe to re-open.
We wrestled with this decision this morning at out leadership meeting. We want to be open beacons of God’s boundless love. We also want to help protect people.
After prayerful consideration, The Sanctuary at Woodville has decided in light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak that we will be pausing our regular Sanctuary-sponsored events through May 1st and will re-evaluate at that time.
We will continue to be available to those in our community who have needs — be it prayer, spiritual direction or otherwise — as we are able.
Whispers By The Water
By Elizabeth Cartier
In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.
Turn your ear to me,
come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
a strong fortress to save me.
Since you are my rock and my fortress,
for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
Keep me free from the trap that is set for me,
for you are my refuge.
Into your hands I commit my spirit;
deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.
I hate those who cling to worthless idols;
as for me, I trust in the Lord.
I will be glad and rejoice in your love,
for you saw my affliction
and knew the anguish of my soul.
You have not given me into the hands of the enemy
but have set my feet in a spacious place.
Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress;
my eyes grow weak with sorrow,
my soul and body with grief.
My life is consumed by anguish
and my years by groaning;
my strength fails because of my affliction,
and my bones grow weak.
In my desire to enjoy the warm winter, this whispers by the water was a delight. The warm sun, the quietness of the winter, the beauty of the partially iced over lake , the word of God spoke to me on my journey.
He is my rock and refuge, my deliverer and the One I trust.
May God bless you on your journey.
