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.
