We have so many creative residents who love to use their talents to express what God is doing in their lives. Sometimes this comes in the form of poetry, and today I would like to share with you a poem written by one of our current residents entitled, Escape:
What does it mean?
To get away. To run and run and run
Farther than you’ve ever gone
Going farther still.
But do we look back?
What do we do when we regret what we have done?
When our escape becomes our focus of worship
A hideous, menacing god we can no longer control.
When our running leads us nowhere.
Escape from what? The emptiness inside?
The darkness that threatens to overwhelm my soul?
I cannot outrun something that lies within.
Deeper than I’ve dared to look, but not too deep for a Savior.
