Merciful Storms

But God’s grace is so massive that it tracks down both types of runners – the lawbreakers and the lawkeepers, the moral and the immoral, the good and the bad.  The story of Jonah proves that.  Whenever we try running from God, he’s committed to making our lives miserable – for our sakes.  And so often, he’ll use some kind of storm to do it, not to punish but to mercifully intervene.
