Nudge…What Song Would Jonah Have Sung?
I didn’t ask (maybe I should have), but I don’t think Randal will mind if I use a “nudge” to try and get some conversation going this morning. It’s been a long while since I’ve seen one anyways. So here you go. Let me know what you think.
One of the amazing things to me about some of God’s people recorded in the Bible was their ability to sing in hard or even perilous times. Take Paul and Silas for the easiest example. Shackled in a stinking prison with open wounds on their body – and they’re singing at midnight…loud enough for other prisoners to hear them. Wow!
Here’s the nudge, if you so choose to participate: One person that comes to mind when it comes to facing a perilous time is Jonah. I know the scriptures say nothing about him singing, and I’m not trying to make them say it; but if Jonah was to have sung a song in his temporary jail cell, what do you think it would have been? For example, I think he could’ve sung, “Where Could I Go?” This is especially true when it comes to the chorus that echoes, “Where could I go, O where could I go, Seeking a refuge for my soul? Needing a friend to save me in the end, Where could I but to the Lord?”
What say ye when it comes to what sang he?
