Recovery and Learning

I mentioned that last month I went to a country that is hostile to Christianity to help equip the members of an underground church to more effectively study the Bible.  It was a long 8 days.  It was completely engaging and completely exhilarating.  I came back tired but excited about what was accomplished.
When things go really well, what usually happens next?  Thoughts at DTTB.
I was surprised and a little disappointed that for the next week I was wiped out.  I figured it would not take that long to bounce back.  I was wrong.  It has also taken longer than a week.

I am not sure that I have fully recovered from the trip.  My time in the Word in terms of Bible study has been good.  However, meeting Christ in that time has been hard.  I do not know if it is because we stirred up those folks in the Word and the enemy is retaliating, or if I just am still emotionally drained.  Whatever it is I did not expect this.  I will be better armed next time.

That is one of the lessons I have learned over the years.  I have to be aware of how the enemy comes after me.  I have to guard against his schemes.  From time to time he throws me a curve ball.  I try to observe that and learn so I will be better armed the next time.

It is a good practice.
