I Run To You - Paul David Tripp - Wednesday's Word Weekly Devotional

Wednesday's Word

I Run To You

When it all becomes
confusing,
when what is good
seems not so
clear,
when wrong seems
like it’s
winning,
where do you
run,
where do you
hide?

When you wonder
if it’s worth it to
honor
worship
fear
obey,
where do you
run,
where do you
hide?

When disappointment
surrounds you
and weariness sets in,
where do you
run,
where do you
hide?

When your soul is growing
bitter
and you heart is at its
end,
where do you
run,
where do you hide?

When evil seems to
prosper and good suffers
again,
where do you
run,
where do you
hide?

When my flesh is
weak
and my heart may
fail,
there is one thing I have
learned;
You are the only place of
refuge,
You are the only place to
hide.
You are
Counsel
Guidance
Glory
Strength.
I have nothing besides
You.
So in the darkness of
confusion
when I need a place to
hide,
I run to the only place to
hide.
I run to
You.

God bless

Paul Tripp
