I had heard this phrase before, but didn’t know where it came from. Today, I received a video adaptation of this classic work in an email. Originally, this was a writing from a man named Francis Thompson, first copyrighted in 1922. The link for the free ebook is here. http://www.gutenberg.org/files/30730/30730-h/30730-h.htm
This work has been beautifully adapted into a free modern version video here:
It is basically the story of how God keeps pursuing us with His truth and love, even when we are trying to get away from him.
