“The word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time…”
It’s normal to want to be in control and know where God is taking us. We want God’s plan to match our plan. That said, sometimes I think God has to short circuit our plans for our own benefit. Through Jesus, we know that God is good and God loves us. With that knowledge, we can endure a seemingly painful change in our plans and still be joyful, hopeful and open to God’s plan.
