Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us,
But to Your name give glory,
Because of Your mercy,
Because of Your truth.

Psalm 115:1


The Misinterpreted Mind of Malcolm Manikowski

I sometimes wish things would just come together already. To think a
plan exists for me is exciting but frustrating that I don’t know what
it is. I wish I could be let in on it.

My brain won’t stop thinking about stuff I should just forget about.
I’ve been told flatout it’s not worth thinking about. So why are the
feelings still there? Just go away, please.

I think I’m mildly bipolar. Or at least I have been these past few days.

It’s pretty awesome how God can use bad situations for good. I read
Proverbs 5 today and I was like “wow… really wish I had read that
earlier.” (well, Proverbs 5:1-14 anyway) But… at the same time, if I
hadn’t gone through any of that I wouldn’t be nearly as eager and
willing to jump headlong into a relationship with Christ. I’m thankful
for that.

I have a headache. I’m gonna go to bed.

No running in the halls!

I saw a commercial at work today. Perhaps you’ve seen it. It’s for Visa
and it talks about how fast Visa is. I don’t know if it’s a new card
they have where you just scan it rather than having someone swipe it or
not. I just caught the end of it, but basically it’s a bunch of people
in line at a restaurant/cafeteria type place and the line is moving
really quickly. It’s practically a song and dance number but then some
bozo pulls out cash and makes the line come to a screeching halt.
Drinks are spilled. Food is dropped. No one is happy. The cashier
didn’t look that upset but she gave him a weird look like he was an
alien for using cash.

Have we really gotten that impatient? I know it’s just a commercial but
jeez… The mentality that everything should be faster faster faster
scares me sometimes. If something doesn’t go as fast as what you are
used to, you get pissed! We’ve all seen it. Someone’s credit card isn’t
working properly and the person in line behind them starts getting
agitated. I know I’m not really one to talk. I get impatient sometimes.
(Especially when I’m late for work and don’t realize it’s National
Drive Five Miles Under The Speed Limit Day or when my website doesn’t
load in ten seconds and I say “Forget it” and punch my monitor)
Personally, I still think patience is a virtue. I think we should all
try a little harder to slow things down rather than to speed them up.
But that’s just me.

I was watching 24 this morning before getting ready for work. In this season, there was a terrorist attack on America and people have started attacking every Middle Eastern person they can find. The city in which the worst attacks are taking place: Marietta, GA.


I thought it was cool hearing David Palmer even say Marietta, GA but is Marietta that racist? Did they do some sort of research on where they thought the worst outbreak of racial crimes would take place? It was weird.

I wanted to write more but I have to go do some work. Maybe later.
