The Hiding Place

I don’t want to be seen by men
Take me away
I love You too much to make You a show
Draw me away to be with You and only You

Oh my God, do I have the faith that You will answer me even when no one else can see?

Take me away to a secret place
Where we are alone and all I can see is Your face
Oh my God, who am I that You would listen to me?

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others.  Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.  But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret.  And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”–Matthew 6:5-6

One thought on “The Hiding Place

  1. I like this alot. It is in those moments that we are alone that reveal who we really are. God’s word is perfect in helping us judge the thoughts and attitudes of our heart. Great scripture reference Joel.
