I Run to Christ

IMG_2471

I run to Christ when chased by fear
And find a refuge sure.
“Believe in me,” His voice I hear;
His words and wounds secure.

I run to Christ when torn by grief
And find abundant peace.
“I too had tears,” He gently speaks;
Thus joy and sorrow meet.

I run to Christ when worn by life
And find my soul refreshed.
“Come unto Me,” He calls through strife;
Fatigue gives way to rest.

I run to Christ when vexed by hell
And find a mighty arm.
“The Devil flees,” the Scriptures tell;
He roars, but cannot harm.

I run to Christ when stalked by sin
And find a sure escape.
“Deliver me,” I cry to Him;
Temptation yields to grace.

I run to Christ when plagued by shame
And find my one defense.
“I bore God’s wrath,” He pleads my case—
My Advocate and Friend.

Vintage soul.
I want to believe I’m cultivating such an attitude. To me, that sounds like being sweet, thoughtful, passionate, gentle and sensible. To have a deep commitment for long-lasting relationships and for ancient proven methods, for unshakable truths. To cling to the marvelous, miraculous ways of old.
May my whole life be dictated, defended and defined by this one old book: the Bible.
