Hide and Seek
You can run but you can’t hide!
Those are the two thoughts which immediately popped into my mind when I saw the word prompt this morning.
I spent a portion of my life hiding from the Lord because I was hell-bent on sinful living. I was a young, hurt Mom to three kids under 9 and my marriage to the love of my life had crumbled.
I went immorally crazy. I was hiding in all the wrong places and God was seeking me out. It took a while but He won and I am so glad He did!
There was a season in my middle years when going through some very, very hard things with adult kids I hid. But this time my hiding place was IN Him. Remember the song recorded by the group Selah, “You are my hiding place?” I kept it on repeat and clung to the words from Psalm 32.7
You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
Today, I don’t run and I don’t hide. I walk with Him and cling to Him – I make myself known to Him and He to me.
I am eternally glad when I hid – He sought me and never gave up on me.
Are you hiding?
