Once again, I’ve gotten away from my core values. It’s been a long time since I’ve taken time to reflect on what is really happening in my life. A lot has happened over the last three or four years. Well….I would like to think a lot has happened… but in reality nothing has been happening.
In reality, I was hiding. From myself. From my church family. From my biological family. From my friends. Everyone except God.
Have you ever tried to play hide and seek with God? It doesn’t play out real well. We can hide from just about anything or anyone on this earth….but not God. Most people will give up on us…..but not God.
While I was hiding….God made sure the right people remained in my life. My sisters and brothers in Christ. My family. I knew all along the He was protecting me while I was hiding. I just couldn’t make myself come out of hiding.
So what happened? How did God finally get me to stop hiding? I really cannot say at this time. For the past couple of months I have been hyper focused on what has been missing in my life. I’ve been hyper focused on listening to Him. And basically, He let me know that He needed me to be something to someone else. It was time to give, not take. It was time to stop hiding and start living.
“Can anyone hide from me in a secret place? Am I not everywhere in the heavens and earth?” Says the LORD. Jeremiah 23:24
