In the belly of a fish!

 Jonah in the fish

I'm drowning! I'm actually drowning. I thought that if I owned up, God would save me. I can't breathe, I'm going to die. Why is this happening to me? I'm too young to die. I'm going to pass out. Maybe this is it, maybe this is what death is like.

Whoa, what was that? Something just touched me. I hope it doesn't sting. What do I care, I'm dying anyway. Whoa, there it is again. Oh my word, that is enormous. It's coming at me. Oh no, this is it. God, help me!

I can breathe. I don't understand. How can this be? That thing swallowed me. I should be dead. But I can breathe, and that smell is horrible. I can't seriously be inside a fish. Maybe I am dead. It is dark, and that stink. Perhaps this is hell. Can I really be dead? No, it's wet, this can't be hell, it would be hot, with fire. I must be alive. Maybe God did save me. But why? He wanted me to go Nineveh. And anyway, where am I?

Can I really be inside a fish?! That's it, God saved me when I asked for his help. And I'm inside a fish. Wow, Lord, that is stunning. You're amazing. Listen, if I'm right; alive and inside a fish, I'll do whatever you want.

Ha, listen to me, I'm not going anywhere...

Reading: Jonah 1:17-2:10
Question: What lengths has God gone to in showing his mercy and salvation to you?
Next prayer meetings: Sunday 7am at THC and 7pm at Centre Stage, Bexhill
