Have you ever felt the need to hide after you did something silly?  Who knows for how long you hid under the bed or in any other hiding place! God does not want us to stay hidden.  He is patiently waiting for us to come out from our darkness and seek His forgiveness.


  • Think of something wrong you did for which you need to hide.
  • Place the small toy in one of the small boxes and imagine that you are instead of that toy hiding in that box.
  • Close your eyes and talk to God about your silly actions, tell him about your wish to come out from the darkness of your hiding place.
  • After you take out the toy from the box, prepare yourself to go for confession if you need it.
