Devo: YHC shared about Jonah. In his disobedience he ran the opposite direction from where God was commanding him to go. As a result, he ended up on a ship in the sea in the middle of a terrible storm. As a last resort to save their lives, the crew of the ship through Jonah overboard. God provided a great fish/whale to swallow Jonah. He survived in the belly of the fish for three days.
We tend to view Jonah being swallowed by the fish as the worst thing possible, but God’s word indicates this fish was provided by God as a means of rescue. Jonah would have drowned had God not sent the fish.
Sometimes the situations that seem the most unpleasant to us, are God’s way of getting our attention and getting us refocused on the right path forward. He got Jonah alone in isolation and discomfort for three days. It allowed Jonah to come under conviction, repentance and obedience.
Keep the perspective that there may be something we need to learn or deal with in times of trial.
Moleskin: YHC has now Q’d Blackjack five times at various AOs. I have finished once. Much depends on the distance of the run in between the exercises. Apparently Jingles Hill is too far of a run. The fellas persevered and pushed through what can be a grinding workout where much of the toughness needed is mental. Good work fellas!
