After Jesus experienced an exhausting day with his disciples and the multitudes of people who sought him out, he headed to the hills to be alone with his Father and to regroup. What would happen if we, too, followed the model set by Jesus and prioritized time to be alone and unhindered with our Creator-time to be in sanctuary with him?
In her encouraging devotional Seeking Sanctuary: Finding God, Sharon Lamson shares her hunger and passion for regular sanctuary with God-removed from all distractions and focused on conversing with him, meditating, resting, thinking, and listening to his Holy Spirit.
Seeking Sanctuary provides glimpses of Sharon’s life-challenges, successes, failures, and all-while illustrating how God has intimately revealed himself to her. Drawn especially to nature and prone to seek refuge with Jesus on long prayer walks along Lake Michigan, Sharon shares the lessons God has spoken to her. Through her observations of birds or flowers or even a solitary blade of grass, you’ll resonate with what he has taught her about elements such as fear, control, and gratefulness.
Brief questions at the end of each chapter will provide you with opportunities for personal reflection and inspire you to find sanctuary with God and to look for him in all situations.
