2 Nephi 27

27 And wo unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord! And their works are in the dark; and they say: Who seeth us, and who knoweth us? And they also say: Surely, your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay. But behold, I will show unto them, saith the Lord of Hosts, that I know all their works. For shall the work say of him that made it, he made me not? Or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, he had no understanding?

God made us all. What can we hide from Him? To really know Him, we have to show Him our true face. That's a hard thing to think about. How can I show the truth about me to someone I love deeply? If they know the truth, will they reject me? But God knows us. We are the work of His hands. When we turn our true face to Him and lay aside all pretense, He gently wraps us in His forgiving arms.
