On the Run?

On the Run?

But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. – John 6:68-69.

When it comes to dealing with conflict, running is never the solution. Physically distancing ourselves doesn’t heal the wounds caused by unresolved conflicts. We soon discover that we cannot flee from ourselves, and thus, we inevitably have to address conflicts, regardless of when they occurred.

Unresolved issues from our past can significantly affect our present. What we didn’t get over then can get over us now, hindering us from turning a new page and embracing fresh beginnings. Dwelling on past situations is a form of running away from present realities, as it prevents us from fully engaging in the here and now with undivided attention.

In times of affliction, it’s essential to find a secluded space alone with God, where we can reflect by the Spirit and not react in the flesh. In this place of solitude, we release our disappointments, frustrations, and anger to God, resting in Him as our refuge. We do not run away from what we must face; and we do not run back to what is past. We run to God, trusting we can never run out of His love and grace, from glory to glory!
