(Jonah 1:3,17; 2:1,2,9,10 & 3:1)
If I’m not honest when I fail,
let down my God, I may
cause some to suffer as I hide:
I should seek God and pray.
For salvation can only come from
the Lord and Saviour, and he commanded
the fish that he provided,
to bring Jonah to dry land.
God takes his chosen time to teach,
through darkness he may lead
in love, that I may hear his voice
and feel my guilt and need.
In quietness, distractions gone,
He shows I’m small and weak,
and what a privilege if he
wants me for him to speak.
If God delivers and forgives,
commissions you once more,
don’t take it easy, or presume,
– his Word do not ignore.
Tune: I know whom I have believed.
