The 365 Project - Day 106
Packing! This is the main thing I have been doing since the majority of my exams are finished. These Chinese Fu Dog bookends were a killer find. I wanted them for the longest time, and I saw them at Barnes and Noble. Trouble was, I was not about to pay $40 for them there. I went out the Simpsonville flea market, just east of Louisville; and found the exact same bookends for $10. An important lesson is to be learned here. Look for the best price before spending your money.
I still have my church history final, which will be my exempt status as a senior, and I am praying for God's sovereignty to be shown to me as my professor reads through my paper on Japanese missions. I won't put the paper on the computer until after finals are over with, so you guys have the chance to read it, but be excited for it, it was a great paper, and I was happy with the way it turned out.
Nehemiah 2 (the shift to the Israelites)
Now you can see in this chapter that Nehemiah is a servant in the court of Artaxerxes I, and here he is the cup bearer. The king notices his sadness and asks him what's wrong, and Nehemiah explains the situation back home in Jerusalem, and asked if he could go out there. The king agrees, and even sends him with supplies. This chapter points out what it is like because when the city fell, other people thought they could lay claim to the city, and God was telling them that they had to stay the course and rebuild the walls to say that God was sovereign in everything, and he will see the city's completion. I am anxious to read on, and see how the story unfolds.
GRACE AND PEACE!
