An interesting devotional. The title drew my interest also!
Maybe Jonah shouldn't have been mad, but I think I would've been, too. This is an enjoyable retelling of the story.
You captured Jonah's anger and God's compassion well. I don't think I've ever thought about how Jonah smelled after his sojoun in the whale!
Good description. A couple of minor things, easily fixed: "aggravation" and the phrase: "copped out". A cop-out is when you deny responsibility, not when you accept it as Jonah did. Another word would fix this easily. In any case, nice job.
If my assumption is correct, this is an American writer, and in the USA "cop out" is a slang expression for "back down, renege, to quit, give up"; therefore proper in this particular case.
