MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️: I decided I’d go ahead and share the other experience I had in the hospital. (Side note: I am not one that believes ALL things are to be shared...but I’ve been VERY clearly told to “share the stories” and so, my hopes are that they encourage you. So, here we go.
One of the nights, I woke up and saw the Lord standing in the right corner of my room. It was really more of his silhouette. As I looked, another silhouette came in front of him. He then said to me:
“This is where YOU will be safe. Hidden. Tucked under my wing. Overshadowed by me and your husband.”
Hidden + overshadowed. Tucked in. Under HIS wing. MY place of safety and refuge. Many say they want to be “hidden in Christ”... but do we? Are we ok with being hidden? Not seen? Not known? What about hidden and overshadowed by our husbands!?! Ummm. Not in THIS society. Women are SCRAMBLING to be seen and known and for SURE don’t want to be overshadowed. I am woman, hear me roar! The only problem with that is many of the roars are out of ORDER and leaving you uncovered. I didn’t want to be overshadowed by ANYONE for too long...and hidden?!? How would I feel valuable and like I had worth if I were simply hidden!!?? And so, I’d “put myself out there” and I’d make darn sure that Keith didn’t overshadow me. Besides, I was the only person I REALLY trusted...
BUT. God is a God of order. And this is a promise of refuge. A place of safety. A God-given, ordained order that actually holds sooooo many keys to your peace, your rest, your joy, your safety, your wholeness. The TRUE desires of your heart can be safely discovered in this place.
Need to find me? I’ll be the one focusing on becoming MORE hidden and overshadowed.
