Are there parts of yourself that you’re desperately hiding today? “The fact is that we all hide…not just from others, but even from ourselves. But seeing ourselves as we really are is the beginning of sanity, the beginning of the adventure of transformation.” This week on Take Five, Tanya Walker is spending each weekday exploring an intriguing phrase that appears multiple times in the Bible, “eyes that see and ears that hear,” to dare us to engage with and trust our deepest self to a saving, healing God.
It’s a very appealing idea, isn’t it? Not just that we would be more beautiful than we might imagine, but also that we would be so modest as to not know the fact. Unfortunately, though, the video isn’t true.

Are there parts of ourselves that we are desperately hiding today, parts of ourselves we are blind to? Because seeing ourselves as we really are is the beginning of sanity, the beginning of the possibility, the adventure of transformation, the beginning of freedom.
