RUN

I have never enjoyed running.     Maybe because I had asthma and it always seemed to catch up with me at some point….. or maybe it was because we would have to run laps in gym class…. One lap added for every second the balls were not put up which sometimes resulted it MANY laps…. Or maybe, just because I wasn’t very good at it…

For what ever reason…. I just do not like to Run….
Oh… but how I would love to love to…!

I have seen people run on the highway and wanted to know how that would feel… to get that runner high they all talk about…    How they seem to have this inward push to “go run” …. They will even get up at 4 in the morning …. rain, sleet, or shine …. just….to “run”…
but,  even when I try… I just don’t have the endurance or maybe just the will power to do it.  No pull… No push….no desire….

I do however….. sometimes…. get that pull to run….. “AWAY”.

Life gets heavy… it gets hard…. its just plain no fun sometimes!
There IS that inward turmoil and that push that sometimes gets very strong… it wants me to RUN!     It actually feels very strong…….almost an audible voice that says ……RUN…..“There is no way this can be fixed”….RUN…..”You have really messed up this time”….. RUN….”it is getting too hard”….RUN…..”No one cares”…RUN….!!!!!!
That pull…. That push…..Can really get very strong!!

But….

There is a Voice that is deep inside …. Much stronger than that push…. That Voice…. If we really listen to what it is telling us …assures us that we CAN get through ANYTHING and EVERYTHING we have in front of us.    Sometimes we have pushed that voice so far back to the far corners of our heart and mind that it may be a strain to hear It….

But It is there!
That Voice says….

RUN…RUN to ME….. When things get tough…. RUN….. TO Me…. Not AWAY from me.

RUN….The Name of the LORD is a strong tower…. The righteous man RUNS into it and is SAFE, high above evil and STRONG!

RUN….. with endurance the race God has set before us.
RUN…You can do all things in Christ Jesus!
RUN…. You are more than a conqueror! .

So… It actually is a good thing to RUN…. We just have to make sure we are running in the right direction…
