Hide And Seek

19 05 2010

Imagine playing hide and seek and no one came to find you. Life can feel that way at times – and after a while maybe we forget that we are hiding, maybe we even forget the reason that we went to hide in the first place.

Or maybe the reason that we are hiding is still very real to us – fear.  Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of loss.  But whatever those fears that keep you hiding, God is waiting patiently for you to come out.  He has not forgotten you and he cares that you are hiding.

When kids play hide and seek they curl up with their knees to their chest and huddle with arms over their knees and heads down – if they can’t see, then maybe others won’t see them.  If that’s you, look up and you will see the light of God’s love at your feet, lighting the way to Him and leading you out.  You don’t have to hide.
