Many people are running away from something. They have a mess in their past and are trying to get far away. It can be the pain and hurt that someone else caused. It could be a choice to sin that has left the stain of failure. Each day is an attempt to move beyond their past.
Other people are running toward something. They also have issues in their past, but they are moving toward something better. They are seeking healing, forgiveness, and mercy. Each day they attempt to start fresh and get closer to the life God desires for them.
Which direction are you running?
