Hide and Seek
About a year to two ago, I begin having trouble seeing my computer screen. Enlarging the font helped, but I also noticed I could no longer read the labels on everything from my make-up to items in my pantry. Not being able to see clearly became a nuisance—fast! I was forced to have my eyes checked. The doctor suggested I get a pair or “reading glasses.”
What? My mother wears those! Surely he’s not talking about those little glasses that sit on the end of your nose. I rationalized to myself. That was exactly what the doc was suggesting.
I walked around the rack that held the eyeglasses until I was alone. Then, I quickly tried on a pair. To my amazement, I could see!
In my devotion, Hide and Seek, I talk about seeing God. We see God in different ways. Some Christians see God as “close-up and personal.” They think of Him being present in their daily lives. Others see God more clearly by thinking of Him as “far away” or far beyond anything they could image, ruling the universe with great power and mystery. People differ on how they see God, but the bible works like a prescription lens helping us to see that both views are right.
For example, Ps 145:18 says, “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him.” And verse 3 says, “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.”
Thankfully, our heavenly Father is close enough to hear our prayers, and He is so far above us in power He is able to meet our every need. No matter how you focus on God, He is big enough and close enough to care for the smallest concern or care.
By the way, I’m on my second week of therapy after my shoulder surgery. I greatly appreciate your kind words and prayers. I feel them and they are at work! I’m doing better than expected. I still have several weeks in my sling, but I’m getting stronger every day.
Sweet blessings to each of you!
