You know how in the Bible, those around and near Abraham were blessed? Just by being associated with him?
Au contraire, Jonah brought destruction and cursing to those he encountered.
I used to be that Abraham, I think.
I feel more like Jonah these days.
Maybe it's more of a Job thing, in a way. hopefully.
Sometimes we just can't see it.
Like in Esther, how the name of God is never mentioned.
"And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
Just His work, and greatness, and direction, implied.
This may not make much sense to you, but I need to share it a bit.
