Our Life is a Marathon…

We are always running.  We run away from commitment because we are afraid that we can change; or that the one we have committed to will hurt us. We are running from opportunity because our mind is corrupted with fear. We are running from aging because we are so frightened of waking up old. We are running from sacrifice because we want to keep what we have acquired. We run from disaster because we think it can’t happen to us. We run from grief because the pain is too overwhelming. We run from emotions because they become too much to bear.

We are running from faith because we’re afraid not to be in control.

God, I seldom ask you for anything but I will ask you this… Please. I want to stop running.
