Unhidden


They did it.

I did it

&

I bet you did it

or are doing it,

as I slip into it again.

They did it first

&

as soon as they did it

it didn't last very long

the moment they heard~

"Where are you?" (Genesis 3:9)

The game began the moment they did it~

"the man and his wife HID themselves from the presence of the LORD GOD" (Genesis 3:8)

They HID from

THE ONE who created them in the first place~

THE ONE who knew them from their fingers to their toes~

THE ONE who gave them life~

THE ONE who gave them everything that they would ever need.

But maybe it was too good to be true,

so they made a game out of it~

An innocent game of

HIDE & SEEK~

yet they didn't know about the

SEEK part

until the moment they were found

in their HIDING place.

A game that has been

played by you & I & everyone else

from a very young age

that starts with a

HIDER

&

ends with a

SEEKER

who does not give up until

the HIDER

is found.

HIDE & SEEK.

Hmm.

To HIDE~

"keep out of sight" (word hippo)

To HIDE~

I don't want you to see me because if you did

you wouldn't like what you see.

To HIDE~

Can you wait until I have it all together first

before you see me?

To HIDE~

I can't face it, because if I do I have to face me first?

To HIDE~

If I don't let them see what I am really feeling

just maybe I won't have to feel.

To HIDE~

FEAR that I may be found.

No matter how hard they tried

To HIDE

No matter how hard we try

To HIDE~

LOVE

always finds us right where we are

so that

we no longer have

to HIDE

from THE ONE who created us in the first place

&

who never tires of

playing our game

because

HE

set us up to win

by giving us reason to never

HIDE again~

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love" (I John 4:18)
