Unlike Jonah, love held me back from Nineveh.
There is no other way to throw a punch. The truth often bite and there’s no way around it. Truth must always be told regardless of who it may hurt! Remember, it’s to keep US all from harms way!
Jonah 4:1-4 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.
And he prayed unto the LORD, and said, I pray thee, O LORD, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.
Therefore now, O LORD, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live.
Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?
This new decade:
▪️Open your mouth
▪️Let God fill it
▪️Speak as He gives utterance
▪️Do not hold back
▪️Love enough to speak

Thank you for your blog messages Joan. Jonah wanted God to destroy Ninevah; God wanted His warning message and His Kindness to lead them to repentance. May we become like Christ not Jonah! May we take the lessons of Jonah and all others sent in the old covenant as types and shadows and come to the new covenant Way, the Truth, and the Life of Christ, Whom God sent to be the source of our life, our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption. May God bless you richly in the new decade. love and blessings, Yvonne
