No More Hiding

Things left covered do not heal - TD Jakes

No More Hiding.
Only three people knew his secret. One of them lived in Italy now. The other was close by. Close enough to remind him of where he was 5years ago.  Things were working so well in his life.  He would be marrying Tinuke in three months time. They were looking forward to starting a family immediately after they became husband and wife. But, a part of him was somewhere faraway. A beautiful little girl who had the same nose and piercing eyes like her father. He looked at his image in the mirror and what he saw were the eyes of Victory staring back at him.
How long was he going to keep this hidden? The past seemed so far away and buried at the time he took that decision. Now he had to deal with it. He had taken a wrong turn 6 years ago. He knew God had forgiven him. But why did he still feel so much shame?

"Your redeemer God says: I left you but only for a moment. Now with enormous passion I am bringing you back. In an outburst of anger I turned my back on you-but only for a moment. It is with everlasting love, I am tenderly caring for you".

Those words in Isaiah 54 v7-8 kept playing in his head. God forgave him and God will help him sort it all out. He had to stop hiding his daughter. He needs to take this step to complete his healing process that started one year ago in his living room. He did not live in the past anymore. He has seen the light. It is time to come out.

No matter what you did in the past, God loves you and He still wants to have a relationship with you. Your mistakes and wrong turns in life should be left at His feet. Nothing is hidden before God. He knows everything. Your past might be in the form of a hurt,a person that is a constant reminder of how foolish you once acted, physical scars, emotional wounds. Whatever it is, give it to God and watch Him make you whole.
