God is Your Hiding Place

AUG11Blog

When you were a child, didn't you just love to play hide and seek? 

I loved it when I found the "perfect" hiding place and would stay hidden a bit, while my friends ran past looking for me.   

Recently, while reading Emilie Barnes' book, You Are My Hiding Place, Lord, I remembered those fun days, and a few of my secret hiding places.  

As adults though, we can't hide away from the realities of life like we did as a child.  

Emilie says her prayer time with God has now become her "hiding place."  This is the place ...

What music draws you close to God?

 

Music – we all love it, I just don’t know any one who loves it all.  Let me say it this way instead, I’ve never met someone who has said “I hate music”…but I have encountered many who have said “I hate ____ music.”  You fill in the blank – Rap, Country, Rock, Blues, Classical, Pop.  I myself have eclectic taste…my ipod has a bit of everything on it. However, there are certain artists who when I listen to them, I feel a bit closer to God.

Don't Miss This One!
