Hide and Seek

I spent the Thanksgiving holiday with my family in the country.  I was asked by the children to play Hide and Seek. I was then asked if I wanted to be a Hider or a Seeker.  I chose the Hider role and I hid so well, I wasn’t found.   They gave up looking and surrendered.

While I played the game with my family and all of the children, unlike most of the adults, it occurred to me that I’ve been playing “Hider & Seeker” with God all my life.   I was always looking for a church home.  One where I could be myself and where God would honor the gifts I bring to the table.  I have finally surrendered to his loving care when I came to Marble Collegiate Church.  My church home.  

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. 
Psalms 32:8
