Running For Life

Psalm 55 1-8
Thought for the Day: 2 Samuel 22:2 "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer" I'm a runner. No, I don't run ten miles a day for physical fitness. I couldn't run ten yards if my life depended on it, but I am a runner none the less.

My tendency is to run when problems surface. A misunderstanding with my beloved husband sends me running in tears behind locked doors. A confrontation with a friend sends me into hiding for a month. Instead of facing life and it's problems, I run for cover.

I need to learn or continually relearn that I don't need to face difficulties on my own. God is there. He is my high tower in the war, my Rock in the raging storm. I need to run no further than my knees for all the assistance and protection I could ever desire.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for always being there for me, for being my Rock and my Strong Tower, for being my everything, in Jesus name, Amen.

Psalm 55 1-8

PS 55:1 Listen to my prayer, O God,
do not ignore my plea;

PS 55:2 hear me and answer me.
My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught

PS 55:3 at the voice of the enemy,
at the stares of the wicked;
for they bring down suffering upon me
and revile me in their anger.

PS 55:4 My heart is in anguish within me;
the terrors of death assail me.

PS 55:5 Fear and trembling have beset me;
horror has overwhelmed me.

PS 55:6 I said, "Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest--

PS 55:7 I would flee far away
and stay in the desert; (Sela)

PS 55:8 I would hurry to my place of shelter,
far from the tempest and storm."
