You can run
you can try to hide,
but you can't
get away from
No matter what you are feeling
No matter what you are going through
you can't run
and hide from
even if you are trying to.
It is like running away from your heart,
wherever you go
your heart is there too.
we still run,
then weariness sets in
when you get to your destination
as it ends up being an imposter
can't deliver on what you believed it promised you.
as you are running
there has always been
waiting for you,
to meet you right where you are,
gets your attention.
You feel the gentle tap on your shoulder.
You want to look,
but you are afraid.
How can you
when you feel like you do
when you know He knows everything about you and I~
when I sit and when I rise;
perceives my thoughts from afar.
discerns my going out and my lying down;
is familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens,
You are there;
if I make my bed in the depths,
You are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there Your hand will guide me.
Your right hand will hold me fast..(Psalm 139)
You can run, but you can't hide~
No matter if you are on a ski slope
or on a tropical island
or in a hospital bed
or in an office
or watching TV
you & I
in behind and before..
You & I
whether we believe it or not.
Wherever you are
Whatever you are going through
Whether you feel Him or not
everywhere you are
wants to be.
