Today, I am linking up with the Five Minute Friday community. Once we get our "word" for the day - we have five minutes to write. No editing, just what flows from the heart.
Today's word is HIDE.
Do you ever just want to run and hide?
This week I have definitely felt like hiding.
Life has just been hard and I am weary!
Dragging myself out of bed every day has not been an easy feat.
Usually, I am upbeat, motivated, and excited about life.
But the last few weeks, It seems like hiding under the covers or the bed, ignoring the world, or crawling in a deep, dark hole for a few days would be easier than getting up and cheerfully facing life.
When I saw today's word was HIDE, the first thing that came to mind was:
"That's what I want to do! HIDE!"
From people, from my responsibilities, from LIFE! (just for a while)
But instead God gently reminded me -
"You need to HIDE in me!"That's just what I needed to hear.
Psalm 27:5,6 KJV
Notice the word HIDE in this passage -
HE shall HIDE me in his pavilion
in the secret of his tabernacle shall HE HIDE me
Then what happens? I make a choice!
And NOW shall mine head be lifted up
Therefore WILL I offer ... sacrifices of JOY
I WILL sing praises!
Being joyful, at times, may seem like a sacrifice. How much easier to wallow in my "misery", but God wants me to PRAISE him no matter what my circumstances bring - because of Who He Is! And he will Hide me in Himself.
Five minute Friday is a community of bloggers that links up together every Friday after writing for five minutes flat on the prompt that was given Thursday evening.
