    We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 WEB.As I writhed in pain in the chair, the dentist wrestled on with the split tooth. It was very painful, and I didn't want him to touch it, let alone tug on it like ...

    My face is red with weeping. Deep darkness is on my eyelids. Although there is no violence in my hands, and my prayer is pure. Job 16:16 WEB.Bills piled up steadily at our house with no income to pay them. I'd just spent a couple of months intensely seeking the Lord, praying with my face to the carp...

Rock Bottom

  • And the LORD appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the belly of the fish, saying, I called out to the LORD, out of my distress, and he answered me Jonah 1:16 ESV

    Sitting in the black darkness all alone, Jonah contemplated his situation from the inside of a great fish. The Lord had told him to go preach, but Jonah decided to do something else entirely, and went the other way. In time, his past caught up with him and swallowed him alive. Now it looked like the end. He had disobeyed, and this was his punishment. He deserved it, it is over, 'bout as well lay down and die.

    Then some spark of hope arose in Jonah, as his life was fainting away (2:7) he prayed to the Lord and God changed his circumstances. God spoke to the fish and it took Jonah back to the land and spit him out. Peter thought that he had wrecked his life as well when he denied even knowing the Lord Jesus three times in one night (Mark 14:72), but the Lord restored him.

    I am not saying that sin and running away from God is alright. I am saying that with a simple prayer, you can make it right. Sometimes when we run from God, He will allow us to hit rock bottom. Then when we turn to Him, He will help us. It is never too late, because God's love has no limits. It is never too late, because when you hit rock bottom, He can restore you just as He did Jonah, Peter and me.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, pick me up when I fall. Blow your breath on the fire within me and cause me to stand firm on Your word, in the name of Jesus I pray.

Amen. This is right on time. My son is currently going through rehab for his alcohol addiction so this gives me hope for him. Since he cannot have electronics while he's inpatient I will save this message for him and share it with him when he gets home.
