It is Friday and after having a blast at the #FMFparty twitter party, I'm writting along with many others on the one word prompt that Lisa-Jo Baker picked for us and I'm linking up with them again. The beauty of it is that it is midnight I only have 5 minutes and I'm told not to edit or over-analyze. Often in these times it seems God speaks more clearly, at least to me. Tonight I am one handed and joined by baby. So here it goes:
Jesse Bear what will you wear in the morning? Jesse Bare what will you wear at night?
Oh, the things the word bare brings up in me. Mostly silly fun things. And yet I know, there will be a time when I am laid bare before Him! And He was laid bare for me on the cross.
Why is it that as kids being bare is silly and fun, no cause for shame at all? But as we grow, age, mature, being bare is uncomfortable, embarrassing, shameful, painful?
What is it that I am covering up? I know I cannot really hide anything from Him. But I am often successful at hiding things from myself. At least temporarily.
I came into the world bare and I will return to Him bare. I might as well get comfortable that way. But oh, He will cover me. And that will be the day.
Blessed 8 are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
