Not a lot to report and update you on in this blog. I have been making a few preparations for the next activities (e.g., buying maps for the Pilgrims Way and a trip to climb the highest hill in the Cotswolds) but that’s about it.
Sometimes life is a bit of a plod and the results of the activity doesn’t appear obvious even though you seem busy. Like seeds beneath the ground in the darkness, something is happening but we don’t see it. I have been a bit tired and discouraged lately, struggling somewhat with self-doubt but the key is to keep going. Got my first donation in what seemed ages today which was an encouragement.
For persecuted Christians life can often be hidden. Like a permanent Easter Saturday, caught in the middle, waiting for the hope to come. Sometimes the ordinary “squeeze” of everyday life, the continuous drip of rejection can be as draining as a upfront attack. They need hope; to be remembered as part of something much bigger. But God remains faithful. I pray that you would be encouraged today and be an encouragement to others.
