"What a Revolting Situation!"

“What a Revolting Situation!” I was almost drowned by the swirling waters that surrounded me. Seaweed had wrapped around my head. I had sunk down deep below the mountains beneath the sea. I knew that forever, I would be a prisoner there. But, You, LORD God, rescued me from that pit. Jonah 2:5-6 Have you ever been so down and out that you could relate to Jonah, who was in the belly of the BIG fish. These verses are an excerpt from his prayer to the ALMIGHTY God. And I believe that they are applicable to some who may be like Jonah, with the deep waters of despair swirling around you, and like Jonah, you are about to drowned in your HOPELESSNESS. Your situations may seem BLEAK and IMPOSSIBLE. Your mind is wrapped up with the SEAWEED of ANXIETIES and FRUSTRATIONS, as you contemplate your demise, and you are at wit’s end trying to figure it all out. Then you find yourself being pulled down to the DEPTHS of DESPAIR, sinking lower and lower, believing that you are FOREVER a PRISONER, caught and entangled with ALL the PROBLEMS of your life, with NO HOPE. But like Jonah, the LORD God, is WAITING for you to CALL out to Him, and like Jonah, He WILL rescue you from that pit. He may NOT make your problems go away, but He will PROVIDE a WAY, when there seems to ABSOLUTELY be NO way to get you through those entanglements of life and to bring you out of the DEPTHS of DESPAIR and to PLANT your feet on SOLID GROUND! However, if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to Him, then you are NOT one of His own, and He will NOT HEAR your prayer, UNTIL you pray to Him for the SALVATION of your soul. You do that by: CONFESSING your sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be LIFTED UP out of the DEPTHS of DESPAIR, and RECEIVE HOPE for your soul. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
Mood: hopeful
