Hidden being

Without needing to elaborate or define further, simply presenting, I was struck by words from Abbot William in his autobiography. Ideas pronounced relevancy, themes and words repeating within a different story, something familiar and ordinary happening.

First a Gospel repeat, spoken words of Jesus: Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen;

Over the years I had pleaded with the Lord to show me His holy will–whatever He really wanted of me. His inspiration became clear to me that He had been “hiding” me over those past several years, here and there in this ministry or that, and in this work or that, until I arrived at the maturity of life and spiritual growth that allowed me to begin this special calling. I am quite as convinced of His “hiding” me as I am convinced of the need of this hiding for arriving at the required spiritual growth. – – ‘A Calling: An Autobiography’ Abbot William
