Hide and Seek

I love to play hide and seek. When I would play with my little nieces and nephews, I would try to find the most obvious spot and hide there. Some of my hiding spots included a corner, behind a door, sometimes even beside a table. The trick to the hiding though was to be perfectly still. If you are in a corner behind someone, they won’t see you unless you move.

The reason why I love playing hide and seek so much, is because of their joy when they find me. I am not trying to hide so well that they don’t have a chance. It is to hide in such a that if they just turn around they will find me. It is a lot like finding God. He is not hiding so well that we never have a chance to find him, he is right there we just have to open our eyes to see him.

We learn through the scriptures that if we “seek the Lord…[we] shalt find him”(Deuteronomy 4:29). In that same scripture it goes on to say, we will find him “if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul”. That’s the trick to finding God. We seek him with all our heart and soul.

God is not some mystical being hiding only to reveal himself to a few lucky souls. He is very present in our lives. We only have to turn to him. In other words, we repent and turn away from our lives of sin and turn to God. God is there and waiting, anxious to see our joy when we finally find him.
