The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: "Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against i, because its wickedness has come up before me." But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish.

Passing

Faster, faster, the voice complelled, many miles lay before
Faster, faster, play no more, just keep the miles flowing
Countless lines, blurr of signs, nothing marks the passing miles
Rest ahead, the promise said, just keep the miles flowing
Faster, faster, the voice propelled, many miles lay before
Faster, faster, the voice implored, just keep the miles flowing
Tarry not, and cast no lot, with slower travelers on the road
There's peace ahead, your hopes all fed, just keep the miles flowing
Faster, faster, the voice's will held, still more miles lay before
Faster, faster, now far from shore, just keep the miles flowing
Years go by, no one but I, the goal no longer certain
But faster still, I drive my will, just to keep the miles flowing
Faster, fasster, the voice now still, my journey near to over
A passing life, spent with strife, just to keep the miles flowing

Jonah ran away from the will of God, but before we're too critical of his actions maybe we should answer a few questions. How often do we really seek the will of God in our lives? How serious are we about carrying out His will? Our lives are so busy from sun up to sun down that very little time is left over to just listen, be still, and turn our face to God. We're all running, but to where?
