The Commission

Acts 22:14-15 (New International Version)

New International Version (NIV)

14"Then he said: 'The God of our fathers has chosen you... to know his will... and to see the Righteous One... and to hear words from his mouth. 15 You will be his witness to all men of what you have seen... and heard.

It's Sunday morning and I am reveling in the solitude; the silence broken only by the cosy sound of two ticking clocks.

The rest of the household is sleeping and I have the luxury of undisturbed quietness to meditate, think, pray and listen to God. Even as a child I used to love getting up early on Sunday mornings and having the house to myself, luxuriating in the peace and stillness before the day began for others too.

Thank you Lord, for the quiet and your Presence, so close and so precious.

Psalm 99:5 (New International Version)

5 Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.
