Day 16: Are you a Runner?

Adam and Eve did it

Jonah did it

the Prodigal Son did it


Joni Jones did it

We ran...


No matter how you look at it

Running Away doesn’t count as an exercise

because Running Away is standing still.

It brings with you what you are running away from~


and that heart inside.

Running as far as you can



somewhere or something else.

Yet no matter where your destination is,

your heart will be there too!

What do you run from?

Is it your past, present or future?


Where do you run to when you don't want to be or feel where you are?

What if Jesus ran away from the cross~

Where would


Love &


be found?

Where would




be received?

Jesus tells us that

the Prodigal Son

Ran away from home


"...when he came to his senses...

he got up and went back to his Father.

“But while he was still a long way off, his Father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he RAN to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him." (Luke 15:17-20)

No questions asked.

So who really is the runner?

God tells us how to run to by...

"throwing off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith"


He is running to you

only because

His Son

has opened up His arms

on the cross

so He could put them around you.

So let's put on our sneakers today

as we have a race to run


continuing to throw off everything that hinders~

those stubborn 40 pounds that weigh you down~


let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

by fixing

our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith (Hebrews 12)

Who welcomes you

just as you are~

Not as who you think you should be.

We run by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7)


fasting from running away

and running to

the One

Who teaches us how to run

because He first ran to us.
