The Book of Jonah

Our Ladies Bible Study at church meets this Thursday and this month we are studying the prophet Jonah. I have been trying to read the book of Jonah daily for the last month. I have not always got it done, but that was my goal. It is only 4 chapters and 48 verses so it was very doable, I just got busy and did not do it some days or I read somewhere else in the Bible. Shame on me, but I am still learning, too.

So this morning I dove into the actual workbook of the Bible studies, because I wanted to have it fresh in my mind when it comes time for our group Bible Study Thursday night. One scripture reference was Psalms 139:7-12 and that has been on my mind ever since. No matter where we go, or what we do, or how far away we try to get from God, HE IS THERE!! I can do nothing, go anywhere that God is not already there. Knowing that why do I try to do my own will and my own way!!!
