We attempt to explain the place in prayer, where hearts sing silent adoration, thanks, and praise and our soul is strengthened mightily again to serve our Maker and the Savior of our soul. Our experiences are so special and so unique we find we need to try again and again to testify of its wonder.
Sanctuary of Love
Sanctuary of love in a world of mess;
The place where angels sing and my heart can rest.
I travel there in an instant; all my filthy rags left outside.
In there I am dressed in the righteous robe prepared for the bride.
I stroll by the sweet waters that lulls into peace,
That refreshes my soul and my strength is increased.
I travel in expectation, never knowing fully what gift I will find,
But I know who it is that presents it, and I know He is mine.
Love smells like heaven has opened up its door,
To share a little glimpse of the great love ahead prepared by my Lord.
Without a word the Word of God has filled me up again,
With the touch of eternal life that can only come from Him.
Oh how I love the sweet Sanctuary provided for me in prayer;
That only I can enter with heart bowed low to get there.
As I bow in worship and praise I will see,
Great is this beautiful space provided for me.
Again I re-enter the turmoil of the a world of unrest,
Filled with new hope, peace, and love to God’s truth confess.
O LORD, I love the habitation of your house
and the place where your glory dwells.
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
