For what we proclaim is not we ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as bond servants for Jesus’ sake. 2 Corinthians 4:5
My name is Heidi. Like you, I live a labyrinth of grace and pain, boredom and ecstasy, conflict and peace. I walk my maze with Dreamy Scott, who put a ring on my finger and a lifelong love in every moment.
These are our blood and bone miracles. Read about them here.
Here in these words you will read my song of worship, my scroll of testimony. This blog is called In Search of Sanctuary because it is the record of my Holy of Holies, my own safe and consecrated Sanctuary with the Lord. It is an offering from a flawed life lived in messy abandon to the God Who Sees Me, my Redeemer who has captured my heart and ruined me for any other master.
I live under the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, a fitting metaphor of a mountainous life. Will you come with me to the mountains? It will hurt at first, until your feet are hardened. Reality is harsh to the feet of shadows. But will you come? (C.S. Lewis. The Great Divorce.) I move upward, toward His presence, sometimes in dazzled wonder, sometimes with plodding steps. I write as I stop to rest, and I invite you to climb beside me, up into the mountain of God.
I regularly post here at In Search of Sanctuary. I am a contributer for (in)courage and Ocean of Grace. I am the Church Liaison Director for Women Inspired, which means I represent this amazing organization to local churches. I review books for Thomas Nelson.
I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld Your power and Your glory. Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You. I will praise you as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands. Ps.63:2-3
