Hide Away

Hide Away

And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.   Exodus 34:29

Hey Kids:
 
Moses spent time with God.
God used him to not only lead the children of Israel out of Egypt but give them the Ten Commandments. He went up on Mt. Sinai for 40 days to listen to God’s instructions. When he came down his face shown. The people knew he had been with God. His face shown so much, they wanted him to veil his face to protect them from the brightness.
Do you have a special place where you can get alone with God?
How has time alone with God changed you?
Can others tell by the smile on your face?
If you haven’t found that special place yet, might I suggest a special tree limb or under an arbor? Some folks use a boulder out along a path as their place to sit and pray. What about a sand dune or just tucked away in a cozy corner of your room.
Wherever you hide away, make a habit of visiting often with God.
Blessings,
Gail
