The desire to run away from difficult circumstances to the "greener pastures" on the other side of fence is not new or unique. It is far too common in fact.
Have we ever felt like running away? Any number of circumstances could trigger your desire to run.
Do you have a boring dead-end job where you have no hope of advancement?
Are you in a marriage that started bright with love and promise but has now turned sour by apathy, distrust or broken dreams?
Do you have a college roommate who is driving you up the wall?
Look at David in Psalm55, we can better understand why we often feel like running away and we will also discover a better way to respond.
