Jonah 2:10

And the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
(NIV)

Don't you just love fresh starts. They're not always fresh, but they are a start.

The God that we serve is a God of fresh starts. My mind goes to the many times that Christ reached out his hand, pulling a lame man to his feet, and saying, "...now go and sin no more." Or the woman caught in adultery, "...neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more."

Only a God of grace will allow a swallowed man to repent. Praise Him.
