it is easy to run away. although i’ve been slacking on my physical running, i have sure been exercising my emotional and spiritual “legs”. not much thought has gone into where i am going except for away from my problems.
this morning at church, this song blatantly revealed the direction i wasn’t going.
to be honest, i don’t know if i have ever run back to God. don’t get me wrong…i have had plenty of opportunities, but i tend to meander back with my tail between my legs. ashamed and at the end of my rope, i have a hard time thinking that He is happy to see me.
the parable of the lost son in luke paints a different picture and brought tears to my eyes tonight as i re-read the familiar but forgotten words.
