Mike's Spot On The Wall
  • The Joy Of Work:
    It's great to have a job that I really enjoy. There's been a lot to do lately (which sort of explains my not posting in a while). But it's been a great blessing to get up and look forward to going to work.
  • Looking Forward To The Holiday:Christmas is great for me. I was pretty Grinchy about it for a long time but then I found my own joy. I don't know how I had forgotten what Christmas was for but I had. I was depressed by the commercialism and the trend away from Christ as the central theme of the season. These things have not really changed or improved but I found a quiet inner joy knowing that He came.
Mike's Walk
  • Hunting For The Supernatural:
    I was feeling down trying to find evidence in my life of late of His power at work in me. Unsatisfied with who I was and how my walk was going, I prayed for quite awhile about it. After a while realized I was trying to twist God's arm to do things in a way that met with my approval instead of recognizing the work He was doing. I was reminded He frequently doesn't show His power in a way that humans understand. What He requires of me is not that I be a spiritual superman but that I do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with Him. It's not about gaining power but about laying down my rights, my strength and my life that He might live in me more fully.
