“Give yourself entirely to God, enter and hide in the hidden ground of your soul.” Johannes Tauler
As a child, I found it fun to hide in shaded places. I enjoyed feeling that no one could find me. Weeping willow trees were perfect for a day’s play, and I never met a tree house I didn’t love. Sitting high above the ground, I could spy on people who didn’t know I was there.
As an adult, hidden things can be a burden. Most of the time, it’s best to get them out into the open. Having a transparent life frees us from worry, from fear, and from guilt.
God offers us a life of freedom. Everything hidden becomes known, but in exchange, we get eyes to see some hidden treasures we never knew existed.
What are you hiding?
