AHHHHHH.... to run. I like how the life reflects the gospel in every key moment. Indeed his word found in Acts 20:23-24 is true.

Acts 20:23-24New International Version (NIV)
23 I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. 24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

Why? Because God has not forgotten us nor has he left us. On the contrary, He is there waiting with open arms (for now) beckoning us to trust Him and believe that he is strong enough for our situation. When we get in the way of ourselves we forfeit our own access to His grace. Essentially, we passing up a ticket to the Presidential Ball for take out at In-In-Out. While In-In-Out is AWESOME, our God and his presence is way more AWESOME-ER than the best double-double animal style on earth.
