ever want to run away to someplace far away?

ever feel like you're worthless? like you'll just never fit in, people judge you for nothing? ever had one of those days when you just want to run away and board a bus and meet a whole bunch of new people? sell everything you own and move to Africa and feed starving bodies clean water and fruit? ever wonder why we have to go to school when we could make a difference in the world -- what is the point of knowing if xya4 + 6d = 12, then what is the value of x? Because it's a  hopeless cause, for me at least. Why I can't I just go with Jesus and give people a means to survive?

art is the only way to run away without leaving home. -- Twyla Tharp
We're never alone. Jesus said that when we seek Him, we'll find Him.
Give it to Jesus, alright? Love your enemies, don't destroy them like it's so tempting to do. Because Jesus didn't. And in the end, when we die and everything's over and done with -- the only thing that will matter is how we've loved.


  1. this post automatically reminded me of "no far away" by chris august. there's no way to get far away from Him. He's everywhere.

    "so when we run from You, we run to You.."

  2. So beautiful. I have felt this way, and so I can identify. Thanks so much, Emii.
