Day 14: When You Want To Run Away
This post is part of a 31 day series on change, where I share my reflections in just 5 minutes. To read all of the posts in this series, click here.
In the midst of a major life change, it can all get overwhelming to the point where you just want to get up and run away. But what would I be running from? My family? My house? The mess in my house? The expectation of finding a new job? I have to admit that I’ve wished that I could pack up and go. If I had my way, I would head to Hawaii or some other tropical place where I could sit out in the sun and listen to the ocean, forgetting about what was (or wasn’t) waiting for me at home.
But one can never really run away from life. No matter how much we want to bury our head in the sand and forget about the challenges that lay ahead, we simply have to be willing to endure. Its’ hard, painful at times, and I move through feelings of shock and disbelief, even still, but the reality is that my situation is not going away. There is no where I can go and hide.
I am thankful that God is always with me. Whether I am living high on a mountain top, or bending low in the valley, God is there. He will never turn away from me, even on those days where I forget to invite Him in to the process.
