We expend all of life - our money, time and relationships - trying to keep things in tact. Most of the walls we build, are walls around our heart. Most of the vacations we invest in, are ultimately from painful memories...
We fear stopping, in case there is nothing that meets us there. We fear the silence, in case there is no word or song of reassurance that comes to us there. We run and strain to find hope and healing and peace.
In some respects, however, we are running to find God, when He has already come to find us. Jesus said, 'I have come to seek and save the lost.' (Luke 19:10) Maybe by 'seeking', you miss being 'found'?
These words of Jesus shake the earth and indeed all things temporal. If you hear these words, and in faith go through the 'door', you enter into life eternal. Stop running. Let your heart 'break', and the light of Jesus will pour in and heal!
'Come to me all who are weary, and I will give you rest.' Matthew 11:28
'Jesus said, 'I am the door, and everyone who enters through me will be saved.'' John 10:9
