Escape, of course, holds great allure. I get that. Believe me, I know it’s pull. But the truth I’ve learned from experience and the witness of those who’ve lived life best is this:
God’s waiting to meet you in what you probably consider the dullest chores, the drabbest moments, the most unexciting and uninteresting places of your ordinary life.
God is in the mundane or God is nowhere at all.
Your inability to embrace that truth keeps you from the happiness you desire, the experience of love you seek.
