Turn Around

Jonah was a prophet of God, Most High. God spoke to Jonah, giving him very specific directions about where to go and what to do. Jonah went the other way and did not do what God told him to do.
         Jonah did not like God’s instructions. He thought he had a better idea what should be done. He resisted. He thought he could escape the Providence of God. So he ran.
         C’mon Jonah, how fast do you think you are? You’d have to be pretty fast to outrun God. Are you faster than the pursuing wind? Faster than the speed of sound? Faster even than the speed of light?

         It’s no use running. Stop already. Stop the futility. Turn around.
