Fact: God has a plan for us. "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" Jeremiah 29:11
"Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Matthew 6:28-30;34
So what's the point of all this? We should have no anxiety about the future. God has a plan for us. There should never be a point where we feel as if we're running out of time for anything. If it is meant to happen, and we do our very best, then it will happen. "Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
Trust Him. He will take care of you.

Running away has generally proven to be an extremely ineffective method for dealing with the difficulties of life. When one runs away from problems they just continue to build up until there is one insurmountable obstacle. So, no running away this time. I'm just going to push on through.
