My Sanctuary


“A Place to Tarry” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

A place where I find refuge from
the world’s ensnaring sham
And gain the inner peace I need
to remember who I am

Where Truth displaces erring thoughts
with facts of God’s creation
And time yields to the ceaseless now
of Life’s continuation

Where Love extends to all mankind
the scope of my affection
And selfishness surrenders to
the grace of Soul’s reflection—

I find this place—so holy, set apart—
Whenever God is foremost in my heart.

Hard times may well be the plight of the righteous— they may often seem overwhelmed — but the Eternal rescues the righteous from what oppresses them.

Broken hearts – some full of scars, so much pain fills their memoirs,
Finding it hard to break loose from the memory of it all. Continue reading “Gathering the Broken in Heart”
