😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you. One sure way to put me on edge is to require me to take a class. It makes it even better when it’s an online class and the recordings won’t work. So, I try again later from a different computer. Yay, they work!  Great…now the internet won’t work. “Come on…I only had 36 minutes left to finish day 1 lessons.”  The internet is working again, but now the presentation will only work for 10 seconds before it takes five minutes to load the next 10 seconds of the presentation.  Studying is challenging enough for me on its own, but then throw in the computer issues. That’s a recipe for disaster. It’s a good thing Brian has learned to stay away from me when stuff like this happens.  Yes, I know it’s just Satan messin’ with me the best way he knows how. I can see that and I can admit Satan knows my weakness…feeling that I’m not in control of my situation.  I wonder if that’s what the Israelites were feeling as the Lord and Moses led them in their journey up to the point that they felt boxed in by the Red Sea on one side and Pharaoh and his army on the other side. Exodus 14:10 “It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert.”  Yep, they said that. That was a pretty bold statement considering they physically saw and were being led by God’s presence in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.  They had no idea that God had such an awesomely amazing event planned to happen in just a few short moments, when He held the waters of the sea back so they could pass through to safety. Yes, He can and will use anything in our lives to draw us back to Him.  I knew that the longer I allowed myself to fume over the class and computer issues, the more worked up I would get and the less I would be open to learning. My focus was turning from “What can I absorb from this class?” to “How quickly can I get this thing done?”  So, God flipped Satan’s intrusion of frustration to allow a break for me to refocus on Him and share this experience with you.  We hear that there are always two sides to a story. I’m choosing to focus on His side.  Bless others and be blessed.
