Tomas wanted more than anything to abandon this place and leave. But the tasks needing his attention are mounting. It is tearing him up. His sense of duty and his penchant for completing projects well, puts him at odds with himself. And may soon put him at cross purposes to the Supreme Commander.
Elijah had noticed this, so we spent the day following him about with our guard detail tagging along.
Despite their presence we were able to seize two opportunities to counsel Tomas to wait and not do anything hasty or without an agreement among the three of us under the authority of the Spirit.
Noticeably, peace blessed the rest of our time out with him on his rounds.
