The Hiding Place
My feather’s were ruffled this morning when I heard about a young woman,that got beat up, while riding a train in Chicago..My heart broke for her as she described the experience and expressed her disappointment that no one came to her rescue. The month of April is recognized as Child Abuse Prevention month. Each time I scan the land of internet, I read about atrocities committed against young children. There is a song that says, you are my hiding place, you always fill my heart with songs of deliverance, whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you. We all need a hiding place. A place of safety, a place of peace, a place to be still and refuel. My sister told me the other day, that I can’t save the world, and I know that, but I know the one that knows the number of hairs on our heads . Almighty God cares about every single human being on earth.He sees the tears that stream down the faces of each child, teen and adult.He sees…He hears the cry of our hearts, He hears the pain…There is nothing unnoticed.
He gives, He loves, He cares for you..As the world turns, it would be very easy to lose faith in mankind, but deep in my heart I know that there are good Samaritan’s on planet earth. Maybe they are far and few apart, but there are unsung heroes, that we never hear about…Where is your hiding place?
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most high, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
