Saturday Morning

Here it is, Saturday Morning and I'm getting ready for work. My lovely wife is still in bed; my wonderful kids are watching The Emperor's New School on TV and I'm getting coffee ready for us. While it brews, I sat down at my computer.

Why am I writing? I'm not exactly sure. But I know I can tell you that the Peace of God is on this house right now. There is no strife. There is no anger. There is no yelling. There is only love and peace as the day begins. One hour may make all the difference in the world as everyone wakes up, but until then there is only peace.

How did the Peace of God fall on our house? We kept asking for it. And, as Jesus said, "Ask and you will receive." Or, more to the point, He told a parable about the Persistent Widow (Luke 18:1-8, NIV):

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, 'Grant me justice against my adversary.'
"For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, 'Even though I don't fear God or care about men, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won't eventually wear me out with her coming!' "
And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"

So, this short post is simply about persistence. Don't give up. Keep praying. Keep talking with your Father in Heaven.
