Have you ever been in a place…where you were running from something? Something you wanted to escape from? Something that needed to be dealt with? Something that was painful and would be awful to bring back up?
We all have those moments of running.
Recently, I had an experience just like this. I kept myself crazy busy, so that I could continue running from this painful situation in my life.
Of course, running from our mistakes, regrets and mistakes is what we could say “the easy way out.” But in the long run, its not. Running only makes the process of dealing and solving the problems that may have occurred, dreadfully longer; and they don’t have to be.
God reminds us in the Bible, in 1 Peter 5:7
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
It’s in those moments, where I don’t even know where to turn, that I lean in close on that verse. It’s those moments where I press in, just to hear His tender whisper of love.
Wherever you are, whatever you are running from. Sister, sit down. Take a moment and ask God to allow His peace and presence to rain in your life. Because like that verse reminds us, that we are to cast all our fears, anxiety and worries upon the Lord. He is our fortress. He is a mighty God, who does BIG things. He loves unconditionally.
Remember, whatever you are running from is never bigger than our God.
Until Next Time,
