Another Train Journey, Another Hotel

Tomorrow lunchtime I will make the familiar journey on foot to the local railway station, head first towards Kings Cross in central London, and then on to the north of England. The better part of another week spent living from a hotel room far from home, sitting among strangers in a foreign office, and pretending to fit in.

I will survive throughout the week on pre-packaged salad bought from nearby convenience stores, cartons of orange juice, instant coffee, and bars of chocolate. I could opt to sit alone in restaurants and watch the world go by, but there’s something terrifically lonely about watching first dates and fat businessmen while eating your “pizza for one”.

I could sit in the hotel lobby with a free drink, and pour my head into a succession of inane blog posts, but that would mean ignoring the loud, obnoxious salesmen that tend to frequent hotel bars, or the sanctimonious cretins complaining to hotel check-in staff about less than stellar free WiFi.

Therefore I will in all likelihood sit in my room with my laptop for company. I will pay for a half-decent connection to the internet, and jump down the infinite rabbit hole each evening, in search of myself as much as anybody else.

Expect navel gazing. Lots of navel gazing.

What then? If some did not believe, their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God, will it? (Romans 3:3 NASB)

This week marks our milestone of Scripture in Pictures with 32,000 followers plus a number of non-Tumblr readers and friends. We’ve been counting years together! Praise be to God!

Thank you very much for being with Scripture in Pictures’ online ministry in terms of sharing God’s Word, insight, testimony, and prayers. Please continue to send praise reports, questions, and prayer requests :)

For another week and a special day as this, receive God’s grace of reminding me and you about faith as shared in the Book of Romans 3:

What then? If some did not believe, their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God, will it? (Romans 3:3 NASB)

Confess to the Father specific unbelief in your heart and choose to rebuke and repent by the strength that counts on the LORD Jesus.

Stay blessed, loved ones!
