So, what if?

Lately I’ve felt like I’m being stretched and pulled in every way. At times, usually when I’m really emotional, I’ve considered quitting and walking (or running) away.

 Have you guys had a similar moment?

I opened up my bible a few days ago needing something specific. I was feeling overwhelmed and weary and went straight to the Psalms.

“…But if you make a run for God—you won’t regret it!”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭2:12‬ ‭MSG‬‬

This verse reeled me in. Like seriously, it tugged at my heart!

Actual tears guys.

If I make a run …. FOR GOD…. I won’t regret it. 

I’m usually so afraid of looking back at my life with regret or thinking “what if”.. what if I followed this dream, at this time? Or what if I took this offer instead of that one ? Or what if I decided to do x, y and not z? What if I could’ve handled this scenario another way or if I was a better leader or friend at this particular moment?

And my mind at this time was playing and replaying these what if scenarios like movie scenes in my head.

I realized this …

running towards God has NO what if. 

There’s no better scenario, nothing grander that I can possibly make up in my head, than the end result of living life with and for Him.

So what if?

What if we RUN for God? What if we completely LET GO in our pursuit of Him?
What if in doing so our “what ifs” are challenged and rearranged?

What if running towards God makes the “ifs” drop?
Then we’d find ourselves running towards the WHAT that He’s already charted.

“GOD charts the road you take…”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Continue running the good race before you. You CAN jump over hurdles and WILL slay the giants that stand in your way. Place your “what ifs” in His hands… because after all he’s already paved out a plan for your life.

“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.”

1 Corinthians 9:24-25

Run towards Him, Remember your crowns 👑

Love you all❤️

  1. Amen. I feel like every time I look back or think what if I always feel like i would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for what happened. I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Yes things could’ve been different but everything happens for a reason.
