On Friday I confided in you, in whoever is out there listening, that I have been running from God for the past 2 years.
And right here I need to stop and I need to tell you something really important- perhaps the most important thing you’ll ever hear me say…
You cannot outrun God.
Trust me. I’ve tried. God loves you and his love will pursue you no matter where you run. He will keep pace with you, no matter how fast your feet move. He will continue to pursue you regardless of what you do to try to get him to stop, you can’t convince him to stop loving you. He loves you too much. No matter how far or how fast you run, you are never more than one step away from God’s love. Promise.
Ironically, as much as I’ve tried to run away from God’s plan for my life I find myself today closer to him than I’ve ever been before. In his pursuit of me he’s pulled me deeper into relationship, deeper into his love. It’s not what I deserve and I am left to sit in the wonder of his mercy. Completely overwhelmed by God’s love.
So here I am, waiting to begin…
Have you ever felt that way? I surrendered. I said yes to God. I accepted his plan and his call. And… Now what?
I confess I’m not really sure what happens next. I have all these words, all these stories, but I’m not sure where to start. My fingers move fast across the page, but it’s a little all over the place.
I’m not sure what will happen with this space. I had plans, but now everything seems different. I think I’m going to have to change my content and I’m worried you won’t like it. Can I ask for your help? Can I ask you to pray for me? Your prayers mean a lot to me. And if you want to connect I’d like that too. You can email me or you can send me a friend request on my personal Facebook profile.
