Run to the Father

God Gold of the day

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to this song this week, I’ve honestly lost count! I’ve been in the battle again of spending that intentional time with the Lord in the morning and throughout the day. It can be tough at times but God just keeps showing me how when I run to Him, with all my burdens and cares, it’s like running from death into life! It’s the only place where I can find true peace, comfort, and love!

I heard a story earlier of a man that was planning to commit suicide, this wasn’t just a story unfortunately but it was a real life situation. From what I heard, the cops got there in time and got him before anything serious happened. I was just hit hard by that, thinking about all the personal battles and anxieties that I face every single day, it hit me that if I wasn’t able to run to the Father, I don’t know what I’d do or how I would handle life. Just some food for thought for you today, thank God we can run to Him and thank God we get the chance to tell others that He is there for them too with open and loving arms, ready to bring them from death to life!!!!

‘God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. ‘

Acts 17:27

“My heart has been in Your sights
Long before my first breath
Running into Your arms
Is running to life from death”
And I feel this rush deep in my chest
Your mercy is calling out”

“I run to the Father, I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding, no reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon, my soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father again and again
I run to the Father, I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding, no reason to wait
And my heart found a surgeon, my soul found a friend
So I’ll run to the Father again and again and again and again”

24 year old dude with not a clue what he's doing but God's grace continues to amaze me! Current Seminary student, avid adventure seeker, and getting married to the most humble, weird, and beautiful girl on the planet! Wasted a lot of years living what I thought was the "good life", then Christ showed me what living really is. I pray that my story can somehow help in whatever way possible, to give encouragement and hope that Christ can do the same with you.
