God just blew my mind...as always

So tonight I was feeling a little down in the dumps and so I was praying a little half hearted prayer, but not really expecting God to do anything about it any time soon. Then I decided to start back up on my journey through the new testament in 40 days(now approaching day 70 something..and im in Luke).

Anyways, boom. Luke 18:1-8 " 1Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2He said: "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. 3And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, 'Grant me justice against my adversary.'

4"For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, 'Even though I don't fear God or care about men, 5yet 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!' "

6And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8I 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?"

I don't usually do this...blog or talk about my personal spiritual life to the whole world(or the 3 people that read this occasionally), but I was just so encouraged by this that I had to share.

Keep praying, don't give up.
