An Everywhere God

“But Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.”  Jonah 1:3 NKJV

Jonah found out he couldn’t really flee God’s presence.

Thank You, God, for being everywhere . . .even the places where I go to hide.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

How could You ask
me to do this?
With my track record
I’d best just hide.

It’s true
I could find
someone better
but then how could I
change you, inside?

God bless you and all the places He finds you today!

Fleeing

“. . .then I will appoint for you a place where he may flee.”  Exodus 21:13

God was giving Moses laws and ordinances concerning violence.  In cases where someone was killed accidentally, He would establish a safe place for the person responsible to go.

Thank You, Jesus, for being my safe place, the One I can always flee to.  I don’t start off my days intending to do wrong.  I need somewhere to go when I do.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

The Best Intentions

I didn’t intend
to hurt anyone today
just got up and got going
in the usual way

then something bad happened
I’m swallowed in dismay
Oh Lord have mercy –
this I pray.
