The One I’m Running To is from a band from Mount Vernon, Kentucky. 7eventh Time Down debuted in September of 2011. In the past decade, 7eventh Time Down has released 5 albums along with two special Christmas EP’s. I discovered this Christian rock band on You Tube. The One I’m Running To uses the stress of paying bills to push people to trust an invisible God when their money runs out.
Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, Hebrews 12:1.
The second stanza focuses on personal temptations and the emotions these daily trials bring. Rather than run away and hide, 7eventh Time Down suggests it’s time to start running toward the Lord. Sometimes all you need is to comes to your senses, Luke 15:17-20, that leads a parable back home to their heavenly Father. May the words of The One I’m Running To inspire you to draw closer to the Lord.
