Movement can be deceiving. Sometimes I think my activity is synonymous with movement toward God. The truth is, I don’t always run to Him. Sometimes I run from Him.
I’m embarrassed to admit that I do it intentionally sometimes. At other times my life is too clouded and my thoughts too cluttered for me to discern. I sometimes realise that I have been running from Him when peace and purpose evade me.
Running from God always costs me something. I pay the price unawares and sometimes not only knowingly but willingly.
It is easy to know and at other times takes me a while to figure it out.
Because I am aware that I Am Jonah I know to constantly ask and check with myself, “am I running to or from God?”
What about you? Does peace and purpose evade you? Have you stopped to ask yourself if you were running to and not from God?
I’m not suggesting that peace and purpose is that sign that I or anyone is running from God but it is one of the signs to watch out for.
Am I, are you, running to or from God?
