The Gift in our Midst   Leave a comment

This image reminds me of how the story of Jonah draws to a close — “Then the Lord God provided a leafy plant and made it grow up over Jonah to give shade for his head to ease his discomfort, and Jonah was very happy about the plant.”

I often ponder the story of Jonah – Sent by God to tell Ninevah they would be destroyed – Instead, Jonah, ran the other way fearing that they would destroy him after delivering the bad news – Jonah boarded a ship, and when a storm brewed that endangered all they blamed Jonah for their peril so they threw him overboard. He was swallowed by a whale and spat out three days later — This story is often referred to as the prophecy of Jesus Christ being in the tomb for three days before he returned to His immortal state.

One day I know that all will be made plain. Until then I trust God for what is, and what will be — And I am grateful for this season of remembrance of God’s love, and the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ who walked out of that tomb to everlasting life – It’s so hard to fathom how much I am loved by God and Jesus, and the Spiritual realm that exists in our midst.
