The Mad Dash

So, in the rush of life, and the horror of life, and the joy of life, the woman made a mad dash.  It was a mad dash away from life. Away from the fears of being seen, the fears of shame, the fears of rejection, the fears of judgment. It was a mad dash within herself, she became speechless.
And not only did she become speechless, but within the maze that she had created, she became invisible. It was the perfect place to hide. She had created her own safety. She did not need people. She did not need God!
The mad dash pushed her to the brink of death, emotional death. The mad dash pushed her to the edge of suicide, because when the woman believed she didn't need people or believed she didn't need God, she lived in darkness, and darkness is death. Light and darkness can not mix. She had made the mad dash to darkness and fear, speechless and invisible, lost in a maze.
This is all a recap of the stories you have heard,  and I'm asking my readers, how many of you are wanting to make a mad dash?  How many of you make a mad dash for the TV, or for food? How many of you make a mad dash for work, or for alcohol or drugs? How many of you make a mad dash for gossip, judgments, bitterness, or resentments?
How many hide behind the walls of sarcasm, jokes, lighthearted chatter, texting, or lies? I know I have. Why do I hold relationships at arms length, then cry to God that I am lonely? Why am I fearful of rejection, yet will not let someone inside my heart? These are all questions I have had to ask myself and answer, and then take the steps toward true relationship and friendship.
I've had to take the mad dash towards people and God, and it is scary. God has promised that He will come up behind me and wrap me in His robe. He will safe guard me and never leave me, He will gently prod me along as I walk along His path, this mad dash towards HIS light. It is not easy for me at all.
So, I hear Him. His promise is that He will never leave me nor forsake me, even in the mad dash.
Say That Again, dear Jesus, you are with me always, through it all, even in the mad dash of my life.

"Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light, and won't come near it, fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in truth and reality welcomes God-light so the work can be seen for the God-work it is." John 3:21
