I Would Run To You!

If you haven't seen the Nike Free's shoe commercial 'I Would't Run to You", it's hilarious... This commercial makes me want to go out and buy some pink tennis shoes and run across the country... I wouldn't make it around the block... But makes me want to give it a try... This commercial is about a long distance couple who takes off to meet each other in the middle...  She takes it literally and he is thinking it is symbolic... So she puts her shoes on (Nike's Free) and she starts off in LA and heads to met him... He puts on a no named brand of shoes and ends up not getting very far... He tries, but ends up almost killing himself trying to run to her... Without breaking a sweat, she is able to do what he couldn't do... All because she has Nike Free's... It's pretty funny... Has to be one of the best commercials I have seen in a long time... It has a catchy little song too... Whoever put this together has to be a marketing genius or something...

Then I got to thinking about who would I be willing to run across the country too and something that Annie Meadows said the other night at her concert... We can make almost any song into a praise to God... I was wondering about that with this catchy little tune of a commercial...  Here are the lyrics...

I Would Run To You Lyrics:

You're so far away.  
You're so far away.
Ain't got too much pride.
Want you back by my side.

Well baby I want that too.
And baby I would run, run to you.
I would run to you.
I would run to you.

The first time you talked to me.
I knew we were meant to be.
And when we finally embraced.
Baby, I can't keep this pace. 

I love you. There I said it.
I think I'm gonna need a medic.
You filled the hall with flower petals.
Why does my mouth taste like metal?

Baby I might die without you.
Baby, I might die.
I would run to you.
I'm not as strong as you.

I would run to you. I (unintelligible heavy breathing) to you.
Love is a speeding comet.
I'm in a pool of my own vomit.
Love is a perfect vision.

This was such a bad decision.
Love makes everything serene.

Give me all of your morphine. (Spoken) Baby, I know we said we'd run across the country to be together, but I thought we were being symbolic. Why can't we fly, and meet somewhere in the middle? Like Kansas City? It's the Paris of the Plains... Baby I love you so much that I would run to you. You would run to me? You would run to me! Baby I love you so much that I would run to you. (Together) I (you) would run to you (me).

If I was going to put this song into a praise, which may seem hard to do... I would have to say that No matter where God is, I would run to Him... And without God in our life and accepting Christ as our Savior we would die... God is everywhere and when we are down like the guy who thinks he is going to die from running, He can breath fresh air into us and help us continue... When the song talks about the first time they met they knew it was meant to be... I felt that way when it came to my own relationship with Christ... God is my morphine, lol... 

I didn't think there would be too much to this little catchy song that I could use as a way to praise God, but I guess there  was many things in it if I looked close enough... So I think I will want to price some Nikes and keep running to Christ... Good thing God is closer to me than the guy is to her in this commercial, lol...

I think your correct all things should go to the glory of our Lord and not to the glory of mankind! The changing of lyrics is good and sinceable if your thinking of the things God wants rather than what mankind wants!

As far as the market place for shoes or anything else. It seems today to have much to do with God's Glory and much to do with man's glory! If God gave someone the ability to run far and fast! Praise God and Him alone for the gift! However this was worked out to sell shoes and shoes alone! Remeber what Jesus said, as He walked near the temple. "you have taken my Father's house of prayer and turned it into a din of thieves! And that is as it was 2000 years agon and as it is today! and then He kicked over all the tables of the merchants and bankers! And wo shall it be again soon! God has blessed us with His Son! Thanks Sandie you got us thinkng again even though some may take it as mindless and sinceless. I just see it as love of God!

AS Always

I love reading your comments pappy... I would think that Jesus has a one of a kind sneaker that hasn't hit the market and if it did, it would be a size that none of us could come close to wearing :)
