"And the Lord appointed a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the stomach of the fish three days and three nights."
I have been thinking about how Jonah was scared of the Lord. He thought that he could hide from Him. But Jonah couldn't hide from God, because God is everywhere. And sometimes we are all scared. But we shouldn't run away from God like Jonah did. Instead we should follow His ways.Dear God, please forgive us for all the times we have run away. Help us to keep our confidence strong in you. Amen.
