What am I up to?!

Well, mostly this week I have been packing, repacking, and shuffling things. I actually enjoy this process because I like organizing and I like puzzles. Packing is a combination of both. And I like the challenge of both space and weight restrictions. I bought a smaller suitcase this summer so that I would be incapable of packing overweight but still managed to get more than 50 lbs. into it.

Other than that, I have been resting and reading. I recently finished a book called "The Heavenly Man". It is the autobiography/biography of a Chinese Christian called Brother Yun. It was striking to read how the Bible was true in his life and how verses about suffering and persecution applied literally to his life. His call to the Western churches for partnership and revival were amazing. I definately recommend the book.

A little unsure...

So, lately being confused over many things...I came across these verses. Finding that Paul gives no explanation but only the promise of understanding as a result of reflection, I am now reflecting. Please reflect with me.

2 Timothy 2:3-7Endure hardship with us like Christ Jesus.

Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor's crown unless he competes according to the rules.
The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.
Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.
