A little lesson...

If anything about these past weeks and months, the political stuff, the financial issues, makes sense it would be found in the still, small, voice of God behind the fury of the storm.

"Come unto me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest..." When you and I are done placing all our hopes and labors into politicians, the market, our careers, our dreams, or whatever else is taking up our time there is God, still waiting and watching for his prodigal children to discover again that true rest is found not in the transitory things of the world but in the quiet peace of the Father's house.

When Christians, who have for so long bought into the empty promises of the world they are basically indistinguishable from it, rediscover this the real revolution will begin.

"True rest is found in the quite peace of the Father's house." That is easier said than done, for sure.

Yes, part of our struggle as Christians is simply to find our way home.

What do you mean by home?
