Hide and Seek

The 2 little toddlers in our family, Eli and Maya, love to play Hide and Seek. I don't know who has the most fun, the hiders or the seekers, but I do know that my favorite part is when they squeal in delight when they are found. I think it is fun to go looking in all of the favorite spots; behind a chair, around a corner, and especially in a small closet in our living room. They love that they can see through the shuttered door and see us coming, and I can imagine their little hearts beating with excitement. When found, they squeal and say "Hide! Hide!' and the game is on again.I was thinking about this today as I listened to this song recorded by Kari Jobe entitled The More I Seek You. The words are so touching as they take me to the feet of my Savior, and I am lost in His presence, the world set aside and forgotten for a moment...

Here are the words...listen to the music as you read the words, and bask in His presence...

The More I Seek You
The more I seek You,
The more I find You
The more I find You,
The more I love You

I want to sit at Your feet
Drink from the cup in Your hand
Lay back against You and breathe
Hear Your heart beat
This love is so deep
It's more than I can stand
I melt in Your peace
It's overwhelming

Sometimes we hide from God when we are hurting, but He promises to never leave us or forsake us. Never. When we hurt physically, He is there for us to give our bodies comfort and sometimes healing. When we hurt emotionally, He is there to mend our broken hearts. When we are hurt spiritually, He is there to lift up our heads and give us strength to trust and believe again.

Oh, yes, our grandchildren love to hide, but they also really, really love to be found. If you are hiding today, please seek Him, for He is always waiting for you.

Love that post, Laurie. You are so right--little children love being found. Good words and application. The song is pretty; I never heard it before.
