Run on the Right Path

Fear motivates, and I run. What from?

A ghost? A memory? A potential confrontation?

A hard situation? . . .

People?

Instead of staying, I run. Instead of facing, I hide.

My desire: stop running from something. My choice: run to Someone.

When running from something, my head turns back. My eyes gaze on potential danger. My feet falter.

When running to God, my head stays forward. My eyes focus on Him. My feet uphold. The threat of peril disappears & safety abounds.

The environment persists. The situation continues. The potential confrontation lingers. But much has changed. Trust motivates. Truth triumphs. God prevails.

I am free to persevere through the trial as He leads or follow Him down a different road.

Can I clearly see the resolution? Not always. But the path is unobstructed. As long as I follow Him, my feet are secure and the answer is in His hands.

path 2

Corners are less menacing.

path 3  path 4  path 5

The unknown feels adventurous.

path 6  path 7

God’s guidance reassures—a friendly Presence.

path 8

And, while tomorrow’s answers may be a mystery, the ultimate destination remains the same—Paradise.

When faced with difficult situations, do you run from them or face them head on? What would it look like if you chose to run to God instead of running from something?

  1. Barb, this is a continual lesson for me. I believe fear is at the root of so many other issues — anger, conflict and even everyday rude behavior. Thanks for a reminder of how to keep this distraction at bay. Meet you at the finish line! 🙂

    • It’s amazing how fear can rear its ugly head without us realizing it. And, I agree, it affects us in multiple ways. Thanks for reading & commenting! Looking forward to praising God with you in Paradise!
