Seeking God While He May Be Found – Ruth Haley Barton
How to Meet with God for a Lifetime – David Mathis
Meeting with God, in his word, is no mere activity. It’s not mainly an exercise in learning. It is meeting with a person, who is not only God but also man like us. To see Jesus — by the Spirit, through the word — is to see the Father. To know him is to know God. To enjoy him is to enjoy God. To feed your soul on him is to have true life.
Converting the Church sermon – Jon Tyson
The Hiddenness of Goodness or the Goodness of Hiddenness – Lore Wilbert
Dallas Willard writes that “the discipline of secrecy will help us break the grip of human opinion over our souls and our actions…we are liberated from slavery to eyes, and then it does not matter whether people know or not…Whatever our position in life, if our lives and works are to be of the kingdom of God, we must not have human approval as a primary or even major aim. We must loving allow people to think whatever they will. We may, if it seems right, occasionally try to help them understand us and appreciate what we are doing. That could be an act of life. But in any case we can only serve them by serving the Lord only.”

Food Saved Me – Danielle Walker
Secrets of the Secret Place – Bob Sorge
“For the LORD God is a sun” (Psalm 84:11). As my Sun, the Lord is my light, my warmth, the one around whom my life revolves, and He is the one who brings forth fruit from the garden of my life. His Spirit waters my life, His word nourishes my life, and His face is the power that causes the fruit of my garden to grow. As a planet revolves around the sun, I want my life to revolve around Christ. I want to be a planet, not a comet that swings by every 300 years only to return to the darkness. And I don’t want to be Pluto, hanging out on the furthest fringe. I want to be close — blazing with the same holy fire that radiates from His face.
