Hidden + Overshadowed.
Morning sunshine’s! Happy New Year! I’ve been silent and unable to write due to a finger infection…I wrote about it on Facebook. It’s been crazy to not be able to write or journal or letter right here out of the gate.
Anyway…I’m on the mend! This morning thought popped into my Facebook memories from one year ago today. I thought I’d share it.
MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️: One of the nights in the hospital, 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 and 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 is many of the roars are out of ORDER and leaving you uncovered. I didn’t want to be overshadowed by ANYONE for way 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 make sure no one overshadowed me.
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.
