Running to Nowhere

Psalm 55:6

I have run away a couple of times in my life. It felt easy to avoid what felt like an imminent torrent of pain and some unending suffering. 

Checking out mentally, emotionally and physically is so common these days, I understand that,  I really do, but the truth is that that takes us nowhere.

We all crave some peace and quietness, who yearns for problems hey?

The truth is that there is no place on earth problem-free. The only place where we will not drag our troubles is heaven and we are going there, but for now, what its offered to us is Jesus who fled Heaven to bring us a slice of heaven here.

Through his presence, he assures us with the help we need to stay and face life’s troubles with him. We then run not aimlessly, but with purpose to finish the race set before us.

( See 1 Corinthians 9:26, James 1:12, Philippians 4:13)
