Journaling Lent: Day 19, Jonah - Remember

Remember His Goodness.

"Those who cling to worthless idols forsake faithful love. But as for me I will sacrifice to You with a voice of Thanksgiving." Jonah 2

It's hard to cling to our idols if we are giving God a sacrifice. 

I sometimes think, "Am I aware of what my idols are?" Obviously I don't literally bow down to gold statues or me claiming to lord over me. But am I aware of the idols in my life?

I think time can be an idol for me. I devote so much time to random stuff. Particularly my phone. Is my phone an idol? Perhaps. I do use it for positive things: reading my Bible, connecting to people, church use, staying in touch with my family, etc...

But am I too enthralled with it?

Recognize your idols so that you can lay them aside & see the Father.
