Podcast #52: “Lord I’m Ready Now” by Plumb & the Book of Jonah

God: “Arise, go…” Us: “Uh, no thank you.” Cue scene where we run away…far, far away. How is that working for you? Well, it didn’t work for Jonah, and this week’s song, “Lord I’m Ready Now” by Plumb, could almost be a soundtrack for the 48 verse story found in the Old Testament.

When we settle in to really watch the story, we see a God of second chances…even for us.

On this week’s episode I discuss:

  • Tiffany Arbuckle Lee’s (aka Plumb) story behind this song
  • Reading the stories of the Bible like we watch movies…all the way through
  • Recap of the Book of Jonah
  • How it’s impossible to run away from God – Psalm 139
  • Recognizing our own failure/shortcomings
  • Coming to a crisis of honest reflection
  • God as the one who lifts us from the pits of life
  • Drawing close to God for strength
  • Recommitting ourselves after a time of repentance and confession
