Are you running away from Jesus?

Have you ever found yourself running away from Jesus? 12341509_911636515598330_6605231526272603795_n

I have.

Maybe you were mad at life. Maybe you were mad at Him. Maybe you were mad at yourself and you didn’t know how to deal with it. Maybe you were upset at how things have gone and you just question if He really loves you.  Maybe you were overwhelmed. Maybe some relationships went the wrong way. Maybe you’re heart-broken. Maybe life is great and you wonder if you need Him.

If you’ve been wondering how to stop running. If you’ve been wondering how to turn around. If you’ve been wanting to desperately stop running away and run towards Jesus. Here are Jesus’ words from Matthew 11:28-30 from (the message)

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

The Message (MSG)Copyright © 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 2000, 2001, 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson

Did you get? If you’re tired, worn out and burned out on religion. If you’re mad. Frustrated. Sad. Not experiencing peace.

Just come to Jesus. Turn around. Stop running away. Get away with Him.

And…

You will recover your life and He will give you rest. 

So, today, make a decision to stop running. Start a new spiritual habit today. Read God’s word. Talk to Him. Surround yourself with other followers of Jesus.
