Band of Brothers

I am wearing the physical and emotional weariness of the last week and month like a warm, comfortable coat, tired but happy.   There are days where I sense that decisions have been and will be made that are and will be eternally significant, that are and will be world-altering.  Immersed in a spiritual dimension that is wrought with weakness and humility, determination and other-worldly power.  A tower has been captured.  A bridge has been reconstructed.  Darkness has been pushed back.  Just a bit.  The darkness is retreating.  For now.

For now we will stop, and eat, and pray.  There is more work to be done.  More captives to be freed.  More neighborhoods that need to be liberated.  We have played a part in all of this.  Together.  A most unlikely band of brothers.

That really feels good.

Quote of the Day:  “If we were left to ourselves with the task of taking the gospel to the world, we would immediately begin planning innovative strategies and plotting elaborate schemes. We would organize conventions, develop programs, and create foundations… But Jesus is so different from us. With the task of taking the gospel to the world, he wandered through the streets and byways…All He wanted was a few men who would think as He did, love as He did, see as He did, teach as He did and serve as He did. All He needed was to revolutionize the hearts of a few, and they would impact the world.”
