a poem by Joshua Scott Zeitz

I’ve been runnin from your goodness,
runnin from your grace.
An insult to your mercy,
been runnin from your face.

Runnin from Your presence,
runnin from your ways.
battered, bruised, and broken,
I’ve been runnin many days.

Worn out from the fighting,
Torn and losing pace.
Worn out from this world,
but You were giving chase!

Runnin, runnin,
I’ve been runnin from You!
Runnin, runnin,
I’ve been runnin from You!

I stepped out in the darkness,
and made my bed in Hell.
This world says, “Now lay there,”
but Your kindness never fails!!!

Your promises, unending!
Your Word, it doesn’t change!
One spark to start a fire,
just a whisper of Your name!

I cried out to You Lord,
bound up in my chains.
A prisoner of my making,
bound up in my shame.

This world says, “Now stay there,”
but You remain the same!
You said, “Come out on the water,”
So I stepped out on the waves!

I’m runnin, runnin,
runnin to You!
Runnin, runnin,
I’m runnin to You!

Now there’s Joy in lieu of sorrow,
In You I’ve found my healing.
Strength to face tomorrow,
to You, my King, I’m kneeling.

Oh I’ve tasted and I’ve seen,
Your Goodness is forever.
Beauty for these ashes,
Your presence my endeavor.

Are you runnin, hurtin, lonely,
done things you never meant to?
Come back to the Father,
He longs to forgive you!

No more hidin in the bushes,
for He already knows.
Turns sorrow into gladness,
He’ll make you white as snow!

So the moral of this story,
this is not the end...
If you’re on this side of glory,
you can always start Again!!!!!

I’m runnin, runnin,
runnin to You!
Runnin, runnin,
I’m runnin to You!

Keep on runnin, runnin,
runnin to Him! :) 

“So repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God—seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];”
‭‭(Acts‬ ‭3:19‬ ‭AMP)
