Chapter-a-Day Jonah 2

I sank down to the very roots of the mountains.
      I was imprisoned in the earth,
      whose gates lock shut forever.
   But you, O LORD my God,
      snatched me from the jaws of death!
Jonah 2:6 (NLT)

I don’t care how low we’ve sunk, how far we’ve fallen, or how deep into it we find ourselves. There is no pit in this life so deep that God’s love and mercy are not deeper still.

God is in the business of snatching people from the depths and raising them up.

Reach out. Grab hold. Believe.

  1. I love your comments, Tom. It takes my mind to the recent suicides in Des Moines and the hope that flooded the pages of Facebook from teenagers, sharing the Message of Christ’s friendship and love.

  2. 10 Then the LORD ordered the fish to spit Jonah out onto the beach.
    I love how the Message brings all of creation into the story. We are quick to put the animal kingdom at a lower level than humans, but this small sentence tells us that God could communicate with the fishes. It doesn’t mean we can, or can we?
