I have written this blog post in my head hundreds of times on run after run. My favorite version of Running to Stand Still is a live recording from Dublin in 1993. In this version, after the last lyrical "running to stand still" is sung there is a drum beat, and dramatic pause before Bono starts belting "halle, halle hallelujah" over and over. Every time, without fail, this rendition almost stops me in my tracks because of the visual it paints for me. Again, scripture reads ".... fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith." We are all running. You are either running from something or to something. Yes, my vision is what I am forever running to, and when I get there I will stand still singing "Hallelujah!" for forevermore because whatever our chaos, whatever our struggle, whatever our imperfections it is all pale in comparison to the Light of the world.
