Jonah

God saw hundreds of thousands,
Hundreds of thousand
Living without Him,
dying without Him,
dying in their sin,
dying alone

So God called Jonah
told him to go
Tell them I love them,
I love them so
Tell them to turn,
tell them to come,
come and follow me,
come and follow me

But Jonah said no,
Jonah said no
I don’t want to go,
I don’t want to go

God see hundreds of millions,
hundreds of millions
Living without Him,
dying without Him,
dying in their sin,
dying alone

God calls all of His children
tells us to go
calls us to go!
Tell them I love them,
I love them so
Tell them to turn,
tell them to come,
come and follow me,
come and follow me

Will you say No?
Will you say No?
I don’t want to go!
No time to go!
No I won’t go!

Or

Will you say yes?
Yes I will go
Yes I will follow
Yes I will tell them
I’ll call them to follow
I’ll urge them to come
Come follow You
Come follow You

    My heart cries out the same...may I remain in His Spirit and share Him with others, even when they hurt me, none of us deserve His grace...I'm thankful for God's gift and for your writing.

      Sometimes we forget how God sees those around us. We forget that He didn't leave us here to bless us, but to seek and to save.
      Thanks much for your kind words.

    Yes, while there is still time, let all of us who are blood-bought, adopted children of God, who know the REALITY of a new life in Christ, answer a hearty "Here am I: send me" - and go forth in His Name, in His power and enabling, for HIS glory.

    We serve an amazing God!

    I find the story EXTREMELY comical till tomorrow... and while it seems funny he is an illustration of how many men and women today have run from their calling to serve The Lord.

    Lovely piece sir! 🙂
