To be known, inside and out, is the heart of intimacy. It’s a nowhere-to-hide scenario.
When you get to this point with another, something unique happens.
You are either destroyed…
Many times, I have found a deep comfort in Psalm 139.
“You have searched me and know me” and you “are acquainted with all my ways.”
“I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” “My soul knows it very well.”
To my fears, “even the darkness is not dark to you.” And to my recovery, “see if there be any grievous way in me and lead me into the way everlasting.”
In case it was unclear, in God we find the latter. Completion.
But it requires a no-hide mentality.
Fortunately, though, bad days make that easier.
