    You are, and remain my favorite among those who are so transparent about their faith journey. Michael, you are special and I love to read your words. Heartfelt and well taken. (Dr. DA is 2nd).

    Thank you, prodinov…that means much to me.

    Absolutely one of the best TGIF. So many times have I been brought back to this passage and others that remind of the faithfulness of my Father even during times where if it was possible, I would walk away.

    Thank you for this, you are such a huge blessing to me.

  4. Michael says:


    Thank you,my friend…and likewise…

    Nicely said … and I hope, prophetic.

    “You’re not alone and God isn’t done with you…now go get some rest and get ready for the rest of the journey.”

    Thank you, Donner…

  14. Michael says:

    Thanks,CK…now make your own application!

  15. Paige says:

    So good. Amen….. Sleeping, eating cake, drinking water… and conversing with God…. actually HEARING from God…wow… Lord, I need all these things as well….

    Go away to a quiet place, take a rest and listen to the still small voice of God….great reminder, great post big brother!

    sound words, impeccable timing.

  19. Matt says:

    Wow. One of the best things of yours I’ve read, which is saying something. There are a lot of people who I know who would do well to read this and, um, “make their own application.” On top of that list is… me. So I’ll read it again, and probably read it aloud to my wife, too. Thank you for sharing some of the pearls which have perhaps emerged in part out of your own discomfort.

  20. Linnea says:

    Amen, Michael…agree that it’s one of the best commentaries you’ve written.

    You have captured the essence of running the race. You’re running a good race, brother, and we are so grateful you’re running it.

    Sometimes, we need a refreshment break….that can last longer than we’re comfortable with or sometimes it’s longer than others are comfortable with. We still need it.

    Praying for you and all of us who are exhausted, discouraged, feeling alone and overcome..and this includes me.

    Again, reminds me of the verse…

    A bruised reed he will not break.
