The little bird kept coming to the plant stalk, nibbling.
I took several photographs of him as he was flitting about.
One of the pictures could almost suggest that he was trying to hide.
When I am very upset over a matter, it is not my general inclination to get on the phone and call someone.
I don’t want to get into my car and drive to a friend’s home to talk it out.
If I am at work, going into a coworker’s area to share my thoughts just isn’t what I normallly do.
Learning to share with a select group of trusted friends when troubles come my way would certainly be a good thing.
I am coming to understand that hiding things like hurt and illness creates a false "me" that others believe.
Although I may want to hide my feelings and the situations behind them, I cannot hide from God.
He knows everything already.
Trying to hide from God would be more like hiding behind a thin plant stalk and hoping no one noticed me.
Since God is aware of everything in my life and in yours, it’s okay to talk to Him about it.
There’s no need to try to hide.
"Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him?" declares the LORD. "Do I not fill heaven and earth?" declares the LORD.
