Hill Far Away

There it was, once again, the most awe-inspiring sight any flawed human-being can ever gaze upon! I can no longer enumerate the countless times I have journeyed upon this path, and each time I do, my face is always covered in shameless regrets and enduring sorrow. As I stare upon this towering emblem of FORGIVENESS and LOVE, my chest-tightened, heaving a flow of cascading sobs that drenched my face. I stood before it, hanging my head in a stance of defeat, with shoulders slumped carrying a load of sin that is too heavy bear. How many times have I crawled to this HILL FAR AWAY where an OLD RUGGED CROSS STOOD? A place where, “all of the weary and heavy laden can find rest.” (Matt. 11:28) I stood before it, asking GOD just how much he can love someone like me, whose life is riddled in sin.

And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account. (Hebrews 4:13 ESV)

This afternoon, I gave our son Romy a cup (1/4, mind you) of raspberry iced tea. He was so giddy with joy, considering that he nor his siblings, are allowed to drink tea or coffee. (For those who know me, my husband and our children, we don’t need the help of caffeine to be energized! Thank you!) I asked my son to keep it a secret and not tell his dad or siblings. Well, as all mothers know, when it comes to clandestine conversations, children are bursting like fire, unrestrained in sharing their secret and excitement. And eventually, like all secrets and whatever is hidden within ourselves or among others, it will eventually be brought to light and laid bare before us and others. Yikes!

It’s also the same in the eyes of GOD. All the
