FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY~ HIDDEN
I have been thinking a lot about who the Lord created me to be and how the true self is often hidden away, and sometimes unknown.
How do we go about finding the hidden parts? I think we become more like our true selves as we bathe in Christ’s love, as we are washed in His grace, and as we are touched by His mercy moment by moment.
The fake, the temporary, and the impressive all become unnecessary when we fix our eyes on the eternal.
I want to live out real Christlike love. I want to seek to live with a consistent eternal perspective. I want to be impressed with the awesomeness of God~ everything else falls short of that.
When I abide in Christ, I don’t need to hide. I am loved and accepted as I am. He knows my true self. I want to be totally yielded to Him, so He is revealed and glorified in who He created me to be. Only hidden in Him, without need for self-protective walls.
