Oh the nerve. Hiding, how could you?!
This wasn’t just any courtroom. It was THE courtroom. THE courtroom that I had all the sudden been curious about. THE courtroom where I was branded. THE courtroom I had locked away, down deep and tight. THE courtroom that held such horror. THE courtroom that became The Hiding Place.
… seek you out.
… find you.
… demand that you wake up.
… won’t allow you to run from (or deny) your purpose.
… won’t accept NO for an answer.
When hiding has had enough of your peering from the shadows or behind the curtains, it will take action. It will hand deliver you, as gentle or rough as it needs, into one of the greatest, most exhilarating, most fulfilling, most complete moments of your life. Ever.
This courtroom, it sought me out. It had something to say. It had something to give. It had something to teach. It had something to bare witness of. And even though a lot of us like to hide so we can deny our realities, purposes and inner truths, life will provide whatever is necessary to:
- Keep us on our toes – no complacency allowed
- Teach us lessons for reasons of maturity and growth
- Put us in situations where we have no choice but to move
- Remind us that we’re all connected to people, places and things
- Show us that even people that we deem to be “evil” are humans, too
So while I still say we shouldn’t hide, I also say we shouldn’t stay … there … stuck … covering our eyes … hiding in a hole … screaming, “No, you can’t make me!” … like I have for the last ten years.
Go ahead and hide, but only for a period of time. Tuck yourself away for a few days, weeks or even months and use that time to seek your inner truth and find peace in your situation.
Find The Hiding Place of your soul, The Hiding Place of your purpose, The Hiding Place of your future.
In that Hiding Place, you will find you.
