On the trail up  七星山 (Seven Star Mountain) just outside of Taipei, a traveler sleeps. Was it his will or God’s that he should rest?

“By self-surrender and perpetual union with God is meant that men should merge their will wholly in the Will of God, and regard their desires as utter nothingness beside His Purpose.”
