Of Mice and Kings

Through the Looking Glass

Mickey Mouse is, arguably, one of the most recognizable figures in American pop culture. A multi-billion dollar industry has been built around this animated character. While describing the creation of this iconic rodent, Walt Disney said…

Mickey Mouse popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad on a train ride from Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when the business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at their lowest ebb: Disaster seemed right around the corner.

Disaster always seemed right around the corner for David. Whether running from a jealous king who was trying to pin him to the wall with a spear, or running from a son trying to steal his throne, David seemed to travel from one disaster to the next. Yet king David is remembered as the greatest in Israel’s history… a man after God’s own heart.

Maybe you have been through the wringer. Maybe you are going through it as you are reading this.

Don’t give up.

Hold onto faith, and trust in God’s timing, goodness, and faithfulness.

It could be that your comeback is right around the corner.
