We can run one of three ways.
Many people feel like they are running from something. The monster is chasing them.
They are fleeing from Hell. From regret. From shame. From punishment. On and on the list goes, but whenever we are running from something, we are in living in a place of fear.
Many people are running toward something. The reward is in front of them.
Toward grace. Toward freedom. Toward reward. Toward enough. Toward love. On and on the list goes, but whenever we are running toward something, we are living in a place of love.
There’s not a scary, falling apart, going-to-Hell world out there that we need to run away from. There’s a big beautiful world full of humans that we are called to run full speed ahead into, anticipating big beautiful things.
Many people are running in the moment. Just aware of what is happening around them.
We can still run to something and be aware of what’s around us. It's much more difficult to run from something and be aware of what’s around us. There’s too much fear and adrenaline and panic.
Run to. See now. Run to.
