God is not absent when all hell breaks loose in our lives. He is ever present observing and waiting for the opportunity to enter in and stop the battle raging inside and around you. God stands quietly and patiently waiting for us to stop and realize we're handling it all the wrong way. But, in the anger of the moment, in the pain of what we are facing, it's so hard to stop and we allow our emotions to get the worst of us until we crash like a speeding car into the wall and end up immobilized, broken, beyond immediate repair or maybe even dead.
King David wanted to run away, hide in a secret place to find refuge and be far away from whatever was tormenting him and causing him to fear. Oh, to fly away. I've wished that many times. To lift my wings and disappear into the farthest place in the world, away from the moment of anger and pain. I've longed for the desert as well. I've wished for a place of refuge and peace where I could be alone and not have to worry about the present or tomorrow.
So, what do you think about wanting dove wings now? Still want to fly away. Honestly, you probably still do because what you're dealing with right now is not easy, but think about this. You can turn it all to the Lord and let Him take care of it all. Don't fly away to a deserted place where you face it all alone, Run to the heart of God where He will not only be with you but give you friends and family for the journey ahead.
