There’s always so much more than what we can see.
More depth, more truth, more to reality.
There are treasures, there are wounds, there are secrets.
It’s so easy to focus on the surface, to react to what we see, and never consider what’s hidden underneath. Hidden is still “there” it’s still part of the story.
I’m thankful that God sees and searches our “hidden things” and still loves us beyond imagination. He sees it all – our best, our worst, where we could have been, and where we are capable of going.
There’s always more to the story than we see, even within our ownselves.
But He sees.
What could be possible if we take His hand?
What could we be capable of if we take His way?
What could be possible if we are loving to someone who has been deemed “unlovable”?
I know some of what is possible because I have been that “unlovable” person.
And I only know the very surface of that possibility.
I am realizing though, that the more time I spend with Him, learning about who He is, and sharing my hopes, my dreams, my regrets with Him, sometimes things I have never shared with anyone –it’s like something like an “understanding” opens up within me. It’s an “understanding” that I really don’t have words to put with in order to describe, but it’s almost like an “understanding with eyes” to see that God is doing something here, in this situation and in that situation. Almost like being able to “see more of the picture”…but without having the words to describe it.
Ha, whatever all of that means!
That’s about all I can do to describe at least what I feel is happening within me. I really don’t even know what I am trying to say right now.
“It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.” – Daniel 2:22
