Uncover It

What you hide, God cannot heal.

This is it

Tolerance has lost it’s ground.

No.

I will not tolerate you.

I will not tolerate this.

What tolerance allows is nothing sound.

But a sound of nothing.

I need a sound of something other than nothing.

Maybe that’s why tolerance is tolerated.

Is that why I feel nothing?

Or everything.

Afraid of the dark? No.

Afraid of what the dark hides.

Shame hides in the dark.

Insecurity hides in the dark.

Self-hate hides in the dark.

Guilt hides in the dark.

Hopelessness hides in the dark.

Doubt hides in the dark.

Lies hide in the dark.

But without the dark we can’t see the light.

“Then Jesus said, “I am light to the world and those who embrace me will experience life-giving light, and they will never walk in darkness.””
‭‭John‬ ‭8:12‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Darkness disappears when light shines into it.

That which is covered by darkness in your life is the very thing Jesus wants to uncover with His light.

Don’t keep it covered.

Admit it to God. Allow His light to shine through you!

“This is the life-giving message we heard him share and it’s still ringing in our ears. We now repeat his words to you: God is pure light. You will never find even a trace of darkness in him. If we claim that we share life with him, but keep walking in the realm of darkness, we’re fooling ourselves and not living the truth. But if we keep living in the pure light that surrounds him, we share unbroken fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, continually cleanses us from all sin. If we boast that we have no sin, we’re only fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time. God is just to forgive us our sins because of Christ, and he will continue to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we claim that we’re not guilty of sin when God uncovers it with his light, we make him a liar and his word is not in us.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭1:5-10‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Hi 👋🏻 My name is Nicole and I love French press coffee without cream or sugar, French macarons (not macaroons) and rosemary cooked in just about everything. My husband and children make me a better woman and my two Boston terriers, Grace and Charlie, too! I love the way God’s Word comes to life when we live it. I’ve dedicated my life to learning how to walk with God daily through my marriage, motherhood and ministry. Follow my blog to see how I do it!
