This is a most interesting phrase....your life is hid with Christ in God. As a hospital chaplain I'm asked what happens between death and resurrection . Of course I don't know but I might say those words...and hope that the questioner is satisfied with my answer. I had some support for my answer from John Barton, the Oxford academic.

Hello Allan, and thank you for being in touch. I think it is a lovely and reassuring image, that our lives are safely deposited in Christ. Another way of saying nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. They are good words to say, perhaps because they both acknowledge the mystery of life and death, but also find an existential rootedness in the love that has overcome death. And if John Barton is OK with it..... His History of the Bible is such a refreshing read. God's blessing and peace on your ministry Allan.
