"Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah.  And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights."
-Jonah 1:17


God is God of the Light and the Darkness....
He created Both;
Make no mistake,
Both serve His Purpose:

The thing that engulfs us in Night
becomes the vehicle God uses to
Deliver us to New Day
That which entombs us 
becomes the scene of Salvation,
of stones rolled away

The great fish
becomes the Ark
that transports us to High Ground

The event that deals the leveling blow
may very well be the burial
which precipitates Birth

When our compasses are spinning
God encompasses us,
God carries us,
God commands the "fish"

and the thing that swallowed us whole,
that dragged us to depths previously unfathomed,
suddenly serves as a segue,

Death defers

and we are given back

to Life.


"You have brought up my life from the pit...
Salvation is of the LORD."
-Jonah 2:6,9
