Do you find yourself in an unknown place?
Are you feeling as if you are some how on the outside of the end of crowd?
In a season where there is much uncertainty?
Are you reaping the consequences of some bad decisions you made?
Through no fault of your own are the pieces of your life scattered?
I found the words in Ezekiel 11:16 comforting as I read them
Therefore tell the exiles, “This is what the Sovereign Lord says, Although I have scattered you in the countries of the world, I will be a sanctuary to you during your time in exile.
Despite what religious people may have us to believe, our faith is not an avoid all trouble and uncomfortable places free card. Life hands us the unpleasant and some of it is a result of our own poor choices. Yet even in that God provides a place of rest and refuge.
The people were not going to avoid being exile but right in the midst of them being away from all that represented home and places of comfort to them, God promised to be their sanctuary.
And He provides the same for us now right where we are.
