Hide and Seek

It used to be so simple when I was a child. The streets were filled with children and laughter, games and friendships. I spent my summer evenings playing “Mother May I” and “Hide and Seek” with my sister and friends.

We would ride our bikes with baseball cards clothes pinned to the spokes and skated the sidewalks with our four-wheeled roller skates until all hours of the night. I didn’t have to worry about anything but not hearing Daddy’s distinctive whistle when it was time to come in for the night. Life was so much simpler then.

Ollie, Ollie, Ox in free!

For many years I played my own game of Hide and Seek from my heavenly Father. I knew that God was there but I chose to hide from Him. He was it!

He would wait by the tree with His eyes closed (or so I thought) and count,
1…2…3 - I played the game of life my way and hoped that He wouldn’t find me.

4…5…6 - How foolish to think that the God who create me wouldn’t also watch over His creation. Even Jonah in the belly of a fish couldn’t hide from God, why would I possibly think that I could?

7…8…9 – How could a God so Holy, so Powerful want to find a sinner like me?

10 – Ollie, Ollie, Ox in free! I love you my child, come seek Me.

Now that I know I cannot hide from God I have learned to seek Him more. I have learned that the joy and happiness I felt as a child can also be the same joy and happiness I feel today as an adult - as His child.

[For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. ~Matthew 7:8 NIV]


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
