You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

Hidden spaces in our soul. Most of us know what this space is. Most of us live with spaces that we don’t want to come into the light. Out in the open for the world to see. Most of us live in the darkness of our sin or the sin committed against us. The darkness can overtake us, keeping us in the shadows of fear and shame. The pain of that sin can over take us, Keeping us Hidden.
But there is a way out of that darkness, those Hidden Spaces. And His name is Jesus.
No longer living under the weight of the sin and no longer living in the Hidden. Asking Jesus to come into our presence. Inviting Him into our heart, our soul, allows Him to envelope us. Covering our darkness with His light. Never to be hidden in darkness again.
Lord, I’m grateful. Grateful that You have shown me a way out of my hidden-ness. Helping me feel the shame, guilt, and pain but not allowing it to over take me. Not letting the sin cover up Your Goodness but allowing Your Goodness to cover up the sin. I’m grateful! I pray Lord that You will guide me to others that need Your light. Give me the courage and fearlessness through knowing You to show others the way out of their Hidden. Help me be bold in You and in You alone. Amen!
