  1. God’s timing is impeccable. Last night I was reading and realizing that I was hiding, not keeping my eyes on Jesus. This very morning my prayer was that I am done hiding. I want to be out in the light with Him. What an encouragement your post is right when I needed it!

    • Vicki,
      I’m glad this was an encouragement to you! It’s a constant battle — light or darkness, which will I choose? Oh how I want to live in the light, but it’s scary!

  2. Caitlin, this is beautiful. You’re right – living in the Light is so hard when we feel so human, but it’s worth it. So worth it. Thank you for writing your story!

  3. Thank you, I so needed this. I am hiding-I am not sure if I am being honest with myself. I am not sure where I am going. I am hurt and I don’t know what to do with the hurt. But I am trying to trust-trust that the one who loves me will carry me through.this is a season of darkness and I am trying to find the light.

  4. This article brought me tears as I realized how much I hide in the dark. Thanks so much. I can see the light more clearly now.

  5. This was so wonderful! I feel like this semester has gotten so hard that Ive slowly but surly kind of crept into the darkness. It’s so hard to just give up that control and know He has such an amazing plan- much better than anything I could ever piece together on my own. Thank you for this!

  6. Oh how I needed this. I want to hide away, hide from my pain–both physical and emotional–hide from my past, hide from my failures, …..thank you for reminding me to have courage and faith and that He loves us as we are.

  7. Beautiful. Just beautiful. What a loving God we serve. Caitlin, thank you for the reminder of just how much He loves and cares for us.

  8. Spoke to me in such a real way, defiantly perfect timing for what I am going through.. Thank you!

  9. So needed this today after feeling shame all weekend. So hard doing it on my own. But HE calls me and I am weary of doing this journey without anyone. Yet church is not always welcoming to me. All I need is Him but it is hard.

  11. What a beautiful and encouraging reminder, Caitlin! Thank you for sharing your heart in such an open, honest, and vulnerable way. My husband and I have been separated for 8 months, and this season of incredible testing and difficulty has allowed me to (re)learn what it means to live free in the light of the Lord’s goodness and love…it’s amazing! But my heart breaks for my husband as he continues to seek (false) comfort in the shadows and lives in confusion and torment. May the light and love of the Father reveal the areas of deception in his heart and bring him to the place of repentance and restoration.
