This is a powerful piece. You did a great job of introducing the conflict right away and pulling me in. I could feel the fear and anxiety in your words. Then when you got to the part about Jonah, I felt the Holy Spirit hugging me with your words. My son relates to Jonah way more than I had wished, but I see how troubles can be a way for God to revive us and pull us where he needs us to be. I believe this story is exactly what God needed you to write and I thank you for it.
What an awesome story! Sure hope this places high!
What a wonderful story of redemption (revival)! God abhors idol worshippers AND He delights in His creation turning to or back to Him. Great imagery generally. Specifically, the image of Jonah's "walking nonchalantly into the Shipping office and buying a ticket to Tarshish" was creative and powerful. This entry is a great, succinct presentation of the Gospel.
Well written. Most of us can relate to your experience. Thank you for sharing this.
