“Hidden Places of the Heart” – Today’s devotional

A Web walk each day with Peggie through a home called Peggie’s Place! . . . .

Wanna play “hide ‘n seek”? Are your KIDding? We’re grownups! “Well” – that’s a DEEP subject and I’ve just made two awful puns, but that’s not where we’re going – yet. No, we’re the grown-up little kids still playing hide ‘n seek with God, with family and friends, and with ourselves, crying, “Will somebody please find me and help me??”

Anger, depression, fear and anxiety, holding-on-to-hurts, low self-confidence and self-esteem – the list goes on and on – all the negatives in the book. “Stuff” can hide within our hearts so deeply we may not realize it’s there. But it is – and what to do? Stop playing “hide ‘n seek” in our world and…start running after Him, a step at a time…..

(1) We run to the Well of His Word and allow that life-changing Word to speak deep into our hurting hearts. Wait a minute, He’s sitting with “that lady” at the Well……well, move over, lady, we’re coming too!

(2) We let Him “dig out” the “stuff” in the hidden places…sure it will hurt, but it’s a healthy hurt. It frees up room in our hearts for Him and His wonderful Word about to invade our private world.

(3) We welcome His life-giving words into the hiding places of our heart. We let Him bring help and healing to our souls….

(4) We return to the Well, again and again, where we allow His Word to refresh and continue to heal every hidden, hurting place of the heart. His life-giving, life-changing Word will fill all those hidden places with His love, joy and peace; His Word will rule in our hearts…..and that’s sure better than our old, stinkin’ STUFF in control……and NOW, what to do??

(5) We go back into our world, this time with a heart full of God’s Word, ready to play a new game of “hide ‘n seek” as we share God’s Word now hiding in our heart with a very needy world “hiding and seeking” all around us…it’s His plan and it works….Try it; you’ll see!

Scripture: “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee (Psalm 119:11 KJV).”
