Soldiers, Athletes and Farmers

God has called us to be Soldiers, Athletes and Farmers...all at the same time. See 2 Timothy Chapter 2. During wartime I dont doubt that battle weary front line soldiers might look at each other and ask "Why?". During those early morning winter training sessions in the lonely pool I'm sure the swimmer said to herself "Why?". When the farmer sees his potato crop ruined by unseasonal rain and finishes plowing the destroyed crop into the ground he must have said "Why?". We are struck down....but not defeated. The dark dark hours at Golgotha were but 39 hours from the glorious ressurection. Hallelujah. Ant
