Is it possible to take the power out of hidden things? Things that are held in secret are believed to be hidden. Hidden things are viewed as unknown and are only revealed when they are found out. Hide-n-seek is a game that has been played by kids for many years. In the game of hide-n-seek the goal is for everyone to hide from one participant. The game is always played outside after the sun goes down, the darker the better. The goal is for the seeker to cover their eyes, start counting down from a specific number, giving the persons that is going to hide time to find a secret place, while the one is not looking. Once the countdown is complete the seeker spreads out to look for the ones that are hiding.

The seeker can only find the persons that are hiding if they actively look for them. The ones that are hiding generally feel a sense of power, because they can see who is looking for them, but the one searching cannot see the others that are hiding. The ones hiding will try to make it back to base which is always under a streetlight, before being found by the one searching. Once back to base or found, the excitement ends only to start the game all over again. Everyone playing the game of hide-n-seek generally feels that they are better at hiding than the others.

The childhood game of hide-n-seek is a game where no one gets hurt or feels like their life is ruined because someone is hiding from them. However, this is not the case when someone is hiding information from an individual, information that could be hurtful, humiliating and life changing, once brought to the light. Some people feel a sense of power when they can hide secrets and information from others, they even believe that they can hide things from God.

However, once brought to the light the hidden information loses its power. The information loses its power because it’s now known by others or many. The hider is exposed and soon begins their quest to repeat the same action again, having not learned or heard the old saying that goes, “Whatever is done in the dark will come to the light.” In the bible it reads in Isaiah 29:15, “Woe to those who deeply hide their plans from the Lord, And whose deeds are done in a dark place, And they say, “Who sees us?” or “Who knows us?” The scripture is evidence that living with the belief that it is possible to hide information or hide things, is an impossible task. The light always exposes what is hidden in the dark and it appears to be wasted energy to attempt to hide.

Stop being a hider of information that once exposed will be harmful and hurtful to someone that you profess to love or care for, I Will, Will You?
