Running from God?

Running from God? Been there, bought the t/shirt!

“Jonah went 2500 miles out the way running from God. Talk about a wrong turn! The good news? God gives a second chance to turn around.” ~ Kurt Wallace

You would think a life-threatening sea storm and a few days in a fish’s belly would shake some sense into a person. Yet that wasn’t the case with Jonah. The final paragraphs of his story reveal a vengeful prophet who obeyed the Lord but allowed his heart to remain on the run.

Jonah paid a big price for running from God. Perhaps you have a habit, a plan, or a current course and you know it defies God’s will. Have you considered the cost?

There are consequences for wrongdoing. The Lord is holy and righteous, and allowing people to get away with sin is simply incompatible God’s plan for you. What’s more, the price for following your own will is high.

Forgiveness: You have probably heard the saying “forgive and forget.”

Forgiveness isn’t a feeling, it is something that you do by faith.  Communicating your thoughts and feelings in a positive way can provide a means for understanding, healing and forgiveness.
“When you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.” ~ Mark 11:25

Reasons You Can, Forgiveness, Clean Fuel Worse On Climate, What to Do When Sick

Power Thoughts:

  • “Instead of giving myself reasons why I can’t, I give myself reasons why I can.”
  • “If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.” ~ Mary Pickford
  • No matter how many times you fall down, always get up one more time!
  • Forgiveness: You have probably heard the saying “forgive and forget,” but to someone who is upset after a challenging period in a relationship, it is often easier said than done. Un-forgiveness and a refusal to let go of past hurts can haunt you for years.

    In the process of releasing past offenses, it is important to go beyond your feelings. Forgiveness isn’t a feeling, it is something that you do by faith.  Communicating your thoughts and feelings in a positive way can provide a means for understanding, healing and forgiveness.
