The Kingdom is full of grace, love, joy, and peace that we are welcomed in to enjoy.
We live in a far from perfect world, yet we can choose a different story than Jonah did.
I’m grateful that God continues to pursue disobedient people, showing us his unmerited favor and grace.

I’m learning to brace for impact less and trust more–what about you?
