Obedience

Ok, so how many of you thought I was going to be talking about our kids obeying?  Uh huh.  That's what I thought.  I've actually been thinking about Obedience a lot lately.  Mostly because of the Bible Study we are doing on Jonah by Priscilla Shirer.  Jonah wasn't very obedient.  He got eaten by a fish.  He became obedient.  He brought an entire nation to revival.  (That's 6 weeks of a study in 4 sentences!)

I want to be obedient to God!  I DON'T want to be eaten by a fish.  I mean, that's some consequences to incur. Of course I sit here and still question God.  I question what he wants me to do.  I question if he provides.  I question his promises to me.  Doesn't sound so obedient does it?

It reminds me of that song by Jars of Clay "Two Hands."  I feel like I have one hand that wants to be obedient and one hand that doesn't.  But I'm going to keep trying.  And I have to think that pleases God.
