“You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man; You keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues.”1
There is a place that I can go to hide, to be safe, to find comfort, to find strength, to find assurance and to find acceptance. I need that place. This world can be so cruel and people be so heartless. The wounds can run so deep and be so painful.
Where is that place? It is the secret place of God’s presence. I can flee there for Him to hide and protect me. There He heals my wounded soul and broken heart. There I find One who truly cares and loves me. There I can be real without fear. In that secret place of His presence I go often and I thank Him with gratefulness for allowing me, a sinner, washed in the blood, to have access to my soul’s delight.
