Running to You

I’ve been running
I’ve been running
I’ve been running and the earth
has been crumbling
beneath me

I’ve been running
as it crumbles
and it causes me to stumble
my weak knees are bleeding
breath heavy and ceasing
I’ve been running
for so long now
that my vision is dimming
black is seeping in
like temptation
like voices,
in the back of my mind,
whispering…
but then,
there was light, was a voice
lifting me up off the ground
and yes,
yes, I’ve been running
afraid to put my trust in that light
and I’ve been running a race with
questions that plague my mind
because who am I?
who am I to be saved? To be loved?
But
You are the truth,
the way ,
the life,
I am His as He is mine
and its
mind boggling
that I’m still running
vitality and strength from His love
flows through my veins
I am still running
and while I run
I pour out my soul to You
my trials becoming mercies
and I’m still running
now with my hand outstretched
and His upward call echoing:
Daughter,
You are Home.
