A Heart of Jonah

As I ponder on the Word of God this week, one thing comes to mind.

Jonah was a prophet of God, His servant, His messenger.

But he was human too.

When the Lord asked Jonah to go to Nineveh, he did not want to go.

How often do I refuse to step into God's plan, to follow His desires?

How often do I think I know better?

Do you ever find yourself there... on a boat to Tarshish?

Sometimes I do.

And yet...

He is merciful

... and He uses me again ...

... and again ...

... and again ...

Today I am grateful for HIS MERCY

From one Jonah to another:) God is merciful isn't he? Have you read Suprised By Grace on the book of Jonah? A fav. of mine. Have a blessed day!

Me too! I'm definitely in need of lots of mercy and grace for the days when my girls with special needs are struggling and our family is so tired and I say things I regret as they hang from my lips. Thank you for this reminder today. Glad to meet you through Ann Voskamp's linkup!
