In today's QT, John reiterates the importance of assisting churches that spread the gospel, brothers and sisters who are strangers. Through materials, prayers, words of encouragement, accommodating their needs in their work of the Gospel, all glorify in his Name. This can only be done by those walking in the truths because it simply does not make any sense for the worldly person to make such self-sacrifice. And so it becomes clear who is the in the truth, and who is not.
It seems despite my troubles, I am still in the truths. Though I may not as actively engaging in such things, I am at least aware. I suppose I am kind of ignoring at lot as I feel I'm lost. I see how amazing everything is, and what a wonderful situation God has put me in, and am so thankful for everything, yet I still cry at my troubles. I'm hopeful, yet I can't help my eyes from tears. I don't know what is happening. I don't know what I'm supposed to do.
Application: go to morning prayer tomorrow
