Hide and Seek

This might freak you out a bit - at least the though did for me at first, but then I found it incredibly comforting.  

If you decide you don't want anything to do with God, He still wants you.  

It's up to you. You could deny Him, you could deny the whole story of Jesus, saying that there's no way that's true. There's no way He healed those people, no way He died and came back to life. Maybe you think he was just a nice person that taught us some nice things. Maybe you are just going to keep following all the rules, hoping that that will be enough.   

He still loves you. He still pursues you. 

I read this in my bible today:   

If I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. - Psalm 139

I don't mean to scare you by saying "you can run, but you can't hide!" But it's kind of true. You will never win at a game of Hide and Seek with God. At some point you just stop running and hiding, and just come home.
