PREGNANT WITH PURPOSE
So, God planted this seed in me for this ministry in January 2015 and I have been seeing it as a baby and you know just like a mother carries a baby in her womb for nine months: Come out of Hiding has been growing in me for nine months and he was birthed on Saturday 31st October 2015. He could have been post mature but I know that was not God’s plan. He came out with a lot of labour pains but the environment was conducive for her to be released. The road was not been easy: sometimes it is hard to remember new life is being birthed forth when you have to die first. You have to go through all sort of pain, trials, hardships but it becomes easier when you set your mind on the joy that is set before you: new life is being birthed forth!
God has been brewing something in me: He has entrusted me with this ministry and I believe He has equipped me with everything I need to this, I just have to learn how to trust Him more and stop worrying. His appointed time is now and I know the enemy is not happy but you know what greater is He that lives on the inside of me than he that is in the world- I have no reason to be afraid because I have the Creator of the Universe on my side! #COOH
'We’re not keeping secrets; we’re telling them. We’re not hiding things; we’re bringing everything out into the open.' Luke 8:17 (MSG)
Come Out of Hiding aims to encourage the youth in the United Kingdom and eventually worldwide to find safety in the ambience of their Creator. It will be a platform where the youth are free to express themselves without being afraid or ashamed of who God has made them to be.
I look around my area- South East London and see the youth just walking the streets aimlessly, so many of them so talented but have no direction or sense of purpose and my heart breaks. The youth have not just been forgotten, they have been tagged as nuisances when all they require is Love. They need to know you genuinely care about them not just the youth but everyone wants to be loved. Broken homes, a broken society with no one to turn to: they feel like no one gets them; they feel like no one feels their pain; they feel like no one understands what they are going through; they feel like no one even cares.
But the truth of the matter is that we all have story but, why are we so afraid to share?
All our events aim to create a deeper insight into the love of God, enabling everyone to experience God for themselves and finally embrace the salvation which he has made available for all through Jesus Christ. It is a platform to share our stories, our testimonies, our struggles, our process, our journey to help others who may be going through the same thing but think they are going through it alone. It's about transparency, most of the youth won't come to Church because they can't relate because no one's being open, no one's sharing their story, no one's being transparent. They feel like they will be judged but there's no safer place than in the arms of Our Father.
I've always struggled with showing people the real me because of fear of rejection but I'm tired of pretending, tired of wearing a mask, tired of being in hiding but now I'm stepping out in faith knowing that, this is what God wants me to do, knowing my story can help others.
come out of hiding!
what is cooh?
Come Out of Hiding
Come out of Hiding Ministries Presents: 'Come out of Hiding'. Come out of hiding- you are safe now; you are safe here; there's no judgement here. We are all going through a process, gradually becoming more like Christ who's image and likeness we were made to reflect in the first place! And we all have our daily battles, our daily struggles and we don't have to act like we have everything together.
Come Out Of Hiding Ministries Presents: 'UNASHAMED' because we are standing unashamed- without guilt, embarrassment or shame! We are not seeking approval from man anymore- 'We often "murder" God's plan for our life in order to get or keep the approval of others' but we are done doing that! Even if people are not cheering us on, heaven is and that is more than enough for us!
Come out of Hiding Ministries Presents: 'Unmasked' because we are taking off every mask and false identity we have put on to blend in and cover up. 'Religion says, "Don't let them see the real you, hide behind a mask and cover your flaws. Relationship says, "I see you for all that you are and I still love you. You don't have to hide or seek man's approval anymore."Tiffany Langford'
