It is painful work to get in step with God and to keep pace with Him— it means getting your second wind spiritually.

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (12 October, "Getting into God's Stride")


Awoke early with hope and joy. These haven't been my hallmarks, so they serve as evidence of the Spirit of the God on the move in my heart. Later this morning our church will vote on whether to call John as our Senior Pastor. I'm quite hopeful— he seems gifted and true, and we need closure and forward motion after a year and a half of interim time. In our staff discussion yesterday (at the Canterbury, a good sign), he nixed my mobile office proposition, and I found myself gladdened by the prospect of someone who would actually want to use our office space as a base of operations for God's invasion of the city.

Also good to know that Victrola now opens at 6:00 on weekends. I'd thought it had only gone back to 6:30, so this is even better. Maybe I need to develop a fresh routine or two.

Those who pray, please pray for our meeting and vote at 12:45 today. We want to follow God's will for our church and to know Him better in the seeking of it.
