Ukraine, prayer

I know it doesn't hit home with many of you like it does with me, but I hope that you have a sense for what is happening in Ukraine right now. It may be a little cliche to call this a revolution, but for these people, what is happening is truly revolutionary. I've never known a people in my life that have been so content to just accept that they are pawns of a twisted and corrupt system --- until now. Honestly, if you told me that hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians would take to the streets for weeks at a time, barricading government buildings and exerting a forceful voice for fairness and democracy - I would have said no, not these people. Not yet, anyway. But here they are, making it happen. They must know that we support their cause. Click here for some great info on what is happening. This is also a great, and wonderfully biased, support site. Also, download my own computer wallpaper - 800x600 or 1024x768.

Now, onto more important things personally. God answers prayer. That is hardly a shocking statement, until we actually run into the situations where we realize on a practical level that it is true. This morning was probably one of the truest devotional times I've had alone since life took a weird turn a couple of months ago. Accordingly, Johnny Coleman called me up tonight and, in true form, asked me to pray with him. This is what I need, and what I prayed for, and what God provided. Why is it so rare that even the most "faithful" of Christians (in my Christian world anyway) rarely step just one step outside the box and do stuff like this regularly? Of course I am talking to myself here. God has brought me a long way on that, but I definitely have a thousand miles to go. I remember suggesting prayer over instant messenger one time to a friend of mine who considers herself to be a believer of believers. It shocked her. Why?

One big obstacle to me is being spiritually real with my family. I've overcome a thousand spiritual obstacles, but never with my family yet. Perhaps I need to pray about that more.

That's it for now. I'm now crawling out of bed at 5:00am every day for work. Yikes!
