Where Would I Go?



When I'm tired.

Where would I go?

When I'm angry at this life and want to just quit.

Where would I go? To Whom else would I turn?

You have proven faithful over and over.

Your love is sure and your grace is wide.

I can't run from you anymore. You are there waiting for me. Patient. Smiling. Arms outreached in love.

I weep, because I know. I know I am yours and nothing can come between us.

We've walked through too many trials together.

I stand in awe. You wipe the tears and look at me knowingly and for the first time in a long time, I know... I am known, I am loved.

Where else could I go?

Nowhere, but to your arms.

****
In John 6:66-68, we find Jesus preaching a hard message to the people about Him being the living bread and people need to eat his flesh and drink His blood for life (metaphorically).

Disgusted many turn away and leave.

Aware that his own disciples were grumbling too, He turns to them and asks,"You do not want to leave too, do you?"

Their reply?

"Where else would we go?"

They were beginning to become very aware that life with Jesus was not going to be easy.

But they knew deep down, he was the way, the truth, and life.

So, where will you go when life gets hard and confusing? There is really only one good answer.

"Your grace amazes me Your grace amazes me
Where else could I go? Where else could I run but Your arms
There's no height, no depth You can't reach
and nothing in this world could ever come between us
Jesus I am Yours."


Listen to the words of this song by Christy Nockels and the Passion band.
