No More Hiding

Posted on February 2, 2019 at 9:30 AM

This morning I was reflecting on the biblical story of Adam and Eve. Specifically, their hiding from God in the garden of Eden after consuming the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

I recall that the story tells of them hiding from God because they were afraid. Interestingly, in hiding they were unable to see God, and were ashamed of themselves. This is what caused their fear. God knew where they were, was aware of their feelings of shame, and encouraged them to come out of hiding and face what they feared.

So often, we are the ones hiding and existing in fear.  At work, some fear an interaction with a colleague who makes them feel small. At school, students fear getting bad grades. In business, we fear taking on a new opportunity. This fear is a result of an identity crisis. Not knowing who we are at our core, leads us to develop a fragile sense of self, rather than wholeness.

For 2019, I encourage you not to hide or fear anyone. Let us spend time learning how to see ourselves as we truly are; not measured against the opinion of colleagues, grades or numbers on a balance sheet.  Let’s pursue our goals, sharing what we know, learning from our experiences and seeing ourselves as we were created absolutely perfect.  

Inspired by Curley, Marie Paul “See Yourself Through God’s Eyes”. 2009

Be Strong. Loving, Fearless

FEAR- False Emotions Appearing Real. And boy can they be very real in the mind of the one who has them. Fear of going outside, fear of not being a good mother, fear of not doing a good job, fear of being alone. So many fears that have and do cripple us if we allow them to do so. The definition of courage is feeling that fear and stepping out in spite of it. God commands us in Deuteronomy 31:6; " Be strong! Be fearless! Don't be afraid and don't be scared by your enemies, because the LORD your God is the one who marches with you. He won't let you down, and he won't abandon you."
Thank you Marcella for another wonderful step on the journey of becoming!!
