quote of the week: Henri Nouwen - hiding from God

I am beginning now to see how radically the character of my spiritual journey will change when I no longer think of God as hiding out and making it difficult as possible for me to find him, but, instead, as the one who is looking for me while I am doing the hiding.
Henri Nouwen, quoted by Scot McKnight in The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others, p. 70
