I've learned a lot of lessons this past year and one of the most important is to not run away from your problems.
You can try and run far away, but they're going to catch up with you sooner or later.
I read these words today about avoiding problems and they spoke so much truth...
"You can't ignore the damaged places in your life because every time you try to move forward, and leave them behind, He'll bring you right back to them.
If you've glossed over and given them the seal of 'redeemed' even though they're not, those areas will bleed through your white wedding dress and let everyone know what you've been hiding.
You already know what area I'm talking about and you can push it down with all the authority of human stubornness, but you'll never win this battle.
You can go over this and over this as many times as you choose.
Being stubborn and seeing yourself through is not a virtue, it's a disease.
It's submission He wants, not strength.
God doesn't care how messy it gets, and He's in no hurry.
When you finally break down and face your demons, you will not be alone.
You'll find the strength and wisdom you've been striving for and it will come in your brokenness.
It's what you've wanted all along.
Grace is the photo op.
Grace is the only thing you should have on display.
All of the other things you want to pour out of your life will effortlessly flow from the well of grace by no stubborn striving of your own."
If there is something in your life you're running away from, please re-consider. Let me tell you, it is not going to make it go away.
He has a way of chasing us down, and He is ALWAYS faster than us...
