There are parts of ourselves that are hidden from our view. We can’t see ourselves fully. We only see bits and pieces of the total picture. The people who are close to us can see parts of us that we are not able to see. Therefore, we need people in our lives who we experience relationships with on a deeper level.
God sees us on every level. Nothing is hidden from His view, and He wants us to experience relationship with Him on a deeper level. We grow in our relationship with God as we go deeper in our relationships with others. We also go deeper in our relationships with others as we grow our relationship with God. Recovery helps us to experience God in a way that is unique and personal to each of us.
When we are vulnerable in our relationship with God, He shows us things in ourselves that have been hidden. We spend time with God where He shows us a reflection of ourselves. God never overwhelms us with His revelations. He knows what we need to see and when we need to see it. Everything that’s been hidden is gradually coming into God’s perfect light.
