A Prayer for Friday
Father, I'm hiding today. Not in a bad way, in a "please don't let ______ catch me" way
but in a restful way.
A hiddenness beyond fear - a hiddenness of rest.
Though my body is working, mind is working, heart is working
my soul is at rest in you. Hidden in you.
I hide here because
it is the only place of true safety.
My character is a target
and there are many who would want to destroy it.
They aren't evil
or malicious they are simply misguided.
Help me love them.
Help me hide in You so I may love them.
Keep my identity safe in you
even if everything else I have goes up in smoke.
I hide to live, and live to hide.
Renew me here.
