Rest. The word used most frequently in our Sabbath School Lesson pamphlet this quarter. “Thou shalt rest, Thou shalt rest!” These are words repeated each verse of
Hymn 387 – Come, O Sabbath Day, our theme hymn for this quarter.
We could add to the theme
Hymn 529 – Under His Wings. Each week of study this quarter, gives more and more of showing God’s deepest care for us, His children. As God’s children we find out about the Biblical family growing pains, and this still happens today. Yet, we are still “under His wings”.
We are so thankful that
God Has Spoken By His Prophets – Hymn 413, including Jonah.
Jonah initially lacked the peace for which the world is longing. The hymns that help us have this peace are:
Hymn 463 – Peace, Perfect Peace,
Hymn 466 – Wonderful Peace,
Hymn 302 – Deeper Yet (verse 4), along with many others.
Having tried to flee to Tarshish, ending up in the belly of the great fish, Jonah was then ready to
Trust and Obey – Hymn 590 and went on to Nineveh.
The people of Nineveh repented and believed, as in
Hymn 486 – I Do Believe, or
Hymn 511 – I Know Whom I Have Believed. They might have even prayed
God Be Merciful to Me – Hymn 297.
Finally, I wonder if Jonah wished to sing
Hymn 153 – Prince of Peace Control My Will and then sung the prayer hymn,
Hymn 471 – Grant Us Your Peace.
Blessings for a wonderful week ahead.

Another great resource is for when there is a hymn you wish to sing, but can’t find it in your hymnal. Go to https://www.sdahymnal.org and in the search bar type a special word in that is in the hymn. I am sure you will be amazed at the help you will be given.
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
