One day, I was reading through the Old Testament of the Bible, I began to notice so many references to the then sanctuary of God that showed the importance of being the sanctuary because that was where God dwelt and while in the sanctuary there were so many benefits: forgiveness of sins, peace, being close to God, deliverance from oppressors, etc.
Though we do not have a physical sanctuary to go to today, once we have accepted Jesus into our hearts, God promised to live inside each individual who has done so.
I made that choice back in 1980.
Now, whenever I need God, or want to feel close to Him, all I have to do is close my eyes and call on His name; and He is there.
All of my problems that I have ever had have been solved in this sanctuary when I choose to close my eyes and call on Him.
I trust that you will try this out for yourself, and be blessed.


When the world is closing in on you
And you need a place to hide your heart
There's a place of comfort, a place of sweet release
There's a place ordained of God where you can hide

Run to the sanctuary, to be alone with God
Close your eyes and He'll be there to meet with you
You are His holy temple, the place where He resides
It doesn't matter where you go, He'll be right by your side

When you've lost your focus and your pride
And you need a place to cleanse your heart
There's a place of cleansing, a place where you can go
There's a place ordained of God to be renewed


When you're out of answers, where you're out of peace
When you've got no place to go, come run with me


He'll be right by your side
He'll be right by your side

I was raised in the beautiful town of Virden, Manitoba.
I love Jesus and pretty much everything country.
It is my prayer that these songs will draw you closer to Jesus. :)
I am always looking forward to opportunities to minister in music as well.
If you would be so kind, please consider giving a 1 - 10 indicator here or on Facebook to help me decide which songs I should consider for an album.
