the runner.

Running.  That’s what it feels like I’m doing so often.  I can be seated or standing or well, doing yoga, but the runner in me keeps going.  It’s about my inner man … letting go of me and accepting what I need.  The reality is that I need help.  I need someone to come and rescue me.  I need to be lifted out of my pit and cradled where I’m wounded and sore.  I need to be still.

It is God who makes wars to cease. He reminded me he can do this with me.  He can take my warring and silence it.  He can heal and he can shatter.  But, He is able to pull me from the ash heap unharmed and he longs for me to recognize Him in all my moments.

Here’s to recognizing GOD ALMIGHTY, the one who’s on our side!

“He brings an end to wars throughout the earth; he shatters the bow and breaks the spear; he burns the shields with fire.  He says, ‘Stop your striving and recognize that I am God!  I will be exalted over the nations I will be exalted over the earth!’  The Lord who commands armies is on our side! The God of Jacob is our protector!”  (Selah)  ps. 46:9-11
