If you have stumbled upon this website, I believe it is not by coincidence. Maybe you are feeling lost, hopeless, or disqualified from coming back to God.
As someone who has experienced the pain of wandering from God, I understand the feelings of shame, guilt, and hopelessness that can come with it. But I also know the overwhelming relief, peace, and joy that comes from turning back to Him.
That’s why I’m so passionate about sharing resources that can help others who are struggling to find their way back to God. Whether you’re feeling lost or have done something that you believe has disqualified you from coming back to God, know that there is always a way back. Here at Dear Runner, I want to share resources and encouragement that can help you on that journey.
I have faced struggles and battles, made terrible mistakes, and thought I was too far gone. But God’s unconditional love and endless grace have always pulled me back to Him. That’s why I am determined to share the resources that have helped me along my journey, so you can know that there is hope and a way back to God.
As Jesus said, continuing in God’s Word is the key to true freedom.
Finding our way back to God is acknowledging that we need Him. Admitting our mistakes and asking for forgiveness can be difficult, but it’s the only way to begin the process of reconciliation. Once you’ve admitted your need for God, the next step is to turn back to Him. This can involve prayer, reading scripture, attending church, and surrounding yourself with a supportive community.
As we continue our journey back to God, we may encounter obstacles and doubts. It’s important to remember that these are normal parts of the process and that there is no shame in seeking help. There are many books, podcasts, and sermons that address common struggles and doubts that people face as they turn back to God.
The most important resource on your journey back to God is God himself. The Bible tells us that God is near to the brokenhearted and that He delights in redeeming His children. Whether you’re struggling with shame, doubt, or simply feeling distant from God, know that He is always there waiting for you.
