    The way I have been shown is to walk forth, think nothing of my life, disappear within the woods and trust God. Taking nothing for my journey, not purse, nor script, nor a change of clothes. This is the way I have been shown to be in the world but not of this world. Amen
    I believe these things are true for He has engrafted it in my heart.
    I have so many spots and blemishes now, my Lord; why would He save a wrench like me? Because in His humiliation His judgment is taken away; and I am worthy to suffer for His name sake. Amen. Walk in the Spirit by Him, for Him; quit running away my daughter, I hear Him say. Every time I do, I bring greater destruction upon me. God forgive me such my short comings; In the name of Jesus and God's will be done. Amen

    Just because Jonah ran from God, did Jonah get to go (back) and not fulfill what God told him to do?
    Jonah got mad at God But that didn't work. God sent a gourd to grow and shade him, but he would not repent. So God sent a worm to eat away the vine.
    Does it do you well to be mad? God said.

    He is full of mercy and His longsuffering for us has been so long. Forgive me Lord, the greatest sinner of us ALL. Amen

    Don't ever drop His hand for even a moment, great destruction comes upon a child of disobedience. My God my heart weeps so. I am broken Lord. This life's entanglements has sure torn many holes; if I had just stayed in the woods, my Lord!!! If I would have stay focus on what I know is True. But Lord, my family needed me! No Lord, they needed you. Amen.

  2. There is indeed only One Way, but sometimes our clouded vision and/or our muffled hearing makes us question or even doubt Him. Are we better or worse than Jonah in the eyes of God? Is He or is He not a merciful God? Give God the glory!

  3. Make no mistake, my brother, it is not doubt, nor is it from clouded vision I was allowed to see, but it is belief and fear of the Lord that He will finish what He began. Amen
    Yes, give God the glory. Amen
    He will lift us up in due season.

  4. John 14:6; Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

    Acts 4:12; And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
     
  5. I do the same thing but I have a change of clothes.

  6. Yes, its good to have something to wear while washing your other set of clothes. And yes, I have been asked to walk away from all, taking nothing with me but the clothes on my back. I did that walk, but as soon as I complied with the Holy Spirits request and walked about a quarter of a mile, I was told to come back, it was to help prepare me for the attitude we are to have toward "things".

  7. Yes, that is what our carnal does for us, "well I need a change of clothes Lord." So I take what I think I need.
    Do we not believe God yet?
    He tells us to not even take a script with us. He tells us he knows we have need of clothing, food. He tells us others will dress you.
    The flesh is a wicked beast; always warring against the Spirit.
    I believe God laughs at our rebellion in doing such; taking what We need for our journey.

    God is able to provide all our needs. Amen.

    I have an elder, who is in upward years and feeble from chemo and radiation. I am honoring her until she is gone; least I have the finger pointed at me.
    My, only begotten (son), is safely locked away, perhaps for life.
    I believe, thou I skipped away singing joy in the Lord, that God has returned me full circle to be a light in her darkness.

    I believe that is why He tells us to forsake all, not looking back, and go forth; there will always be something of this world that keeps us in bondage to it.

    All praise glory and honor be unto God Amen.

    Rock bottom for me was a 38 to my head, and me CRYING OUT Abba Father. The devil begging me to pull the trigger and God with open arms saying, "come to me". My cross roads, my darkest hour, He did not forsake me but reached down and lifted me up, and made me free of this world's bondage, sin and death. It was immediate. He took my heart of stone and gave me a heart of flesh; yes, jadeofmay, I feel you in your distress.

    I ask God to move in, set up camp, pitch a tent and build a fire. And He did. Now, enemies of the cross keep trying to stomp me out. That's ok too, I praise God for it; He has brought me leaps and bounds, teaching me, ministering to me the Way, the Truth and the Life.

    I hunger and thirst for His righteousness and He introduced Himself to me. He saw my works. I made and honest, heart filled effort and God blessed me.

    Now, everything on the outside looks exactly the same, but the inside has been made brand new. I am not the same as I use to be; I praise God for it.

    Only from the heart, He hears you.
