There are times in our lives when we either hide from God or we feel like God is hiding from us. Today, Jeff uses Scripture to remind us that God is always searching for us no matter how much we try to hide from him. Sometimes it’s not so much about finding God, but rather it’s about letting ourselves be found by him.
