Getting back to the parable of the talents, I almost liken the 1 talent Servant to Jonah. I can definitely relate to Jonah. Not that I have ever been in the belly of a big fish, but my gut reaction sometimes is to try to run from responsibility. Not to trust that God has given me certain abilities to run on faith, outside my comfort zone.

Eventually Jonah came through to accomplish what God wanted. So through a bit of Holy strong-arming, he went from a 1 Talent Servant to a 5 Talent Servant. Tonight I am asking God to transform my life to a 5 Talent Servant. I'll be sure to take a shower instead of a bath-just in case.

We'll back to painting stripes in Benny's room. Here is another pic.
