Happy Sunday and Day 220 of Another 100 Days of Hannah …and Counting, y’all!
Wanna know one of my favorite parts about coming back home? Sleeping in my hammock. It’s pretty awesome. Maybe not the best for posture, but pretty awesome.
In any case, today’s been a physically painful day. My body and I have just not been on the same page. As such, it’s been easy to try to escape from the pain. I try to run away into busyness and distractions, yet relief doesn’t come.
This concept of running away reminds me of the sermon from this morning. The scripture text was from 1 Kings where Elijah was running away from Jezebel. He ran with all his might, only to fall down exhausted and wishing for death. After food, rest, and an angel visitation though, his goal changed. Rather than running from Jezebel, he began running to the Lord.
Y’all, running tote Lord isn’t always easy. It’s a lot easier to run to busy distractions, but that’s not what we’re called to do. Rather, we’re to run to the Lord. After all, He is the one who gives rest from our burdens and is a shelter in the time of storm.
Catch y’all tomorrow,
