Having Computer Problems?
Becky was 73 and just got her first computer. After her son had spent over 2 hours teaching her how to use it, she was sure she knew everything there was to know about computers.
Unfortunately, though, one day she couldn’t get it to start, so she promptly called an Internet Tech. gentleman to come over and take a look at it. The IT guy managed to fix the issue for only a few minutes and was on his way.
Becky was proud when she overheard the IT guy on the phone with his boss telling him about the issue, she was sure it meant it was a major problem and was sure she took care of it the right way.
“Excuse me if you don’t mind me asking,” asked Becky to the man on his way out. “I couldn’t help overhearing you on the phone with your boss. What exactly is an Id ten T problem?
So that I can tell my son.” The man smiled, took out a pen, “it stands for this: I-D -1-0-T”. Author unknown.
I can sure sympathize with this Grandma and her computer problems. I love my computer and learning all the different programs and research that I can do with it. It is like traveling the world, visiting family and friends and never leaving the house. How our world has changed over the years.
However I am not very good with the technical side of the computer, if something goes wrong, I am stumped. And when the Internet specialist starts talking Technical terms they might as well be speaking Greek. My eyes just start to glaze over.
I must confess though I have a secret weapon, my son-in-law. He can fix anything that I mess up. I love that he can connect to my computer through an Internet remote control called a TeamViewer, and find out what is wrong my computer. And why it is not working. I can just watch my screen as he moves the mouse around and works his magic.
While I find this technology age so amazing, nothing can compare to what God has done for me in my life. When I remember over the years how he has come to my rescue, always ready to help me when I make a mess. And I know He is near ready to protect, comfort and hear to me, I am so thankful for His patience. Where would I be without his love and constant care? Like the internet technician, he takes control of my life if I allow him, and fixes the area’s that need work and replaces the broken pieces gently with his healing love. Ephesians 3:20 says,
“ God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.”
I know God’s promises can be trusted because he has been faithful to me through all my years. He is enough for me! ©
Thank you for sharing your time with me I love the privilege of hearing for each of you.
You bless my life. Have a wonderful weekend with the ones you love.
I’m dependent on my IT guy too. God is also always logging in and taking over with me too. Love you.
I know you IT guy, He is amazing too. What would we do without them! Hugs
Thank you Karan. I was just sitting here, eating my grilled cheese thinking about everything I need to change in myself and others ????. I need a reminder about every five minutes that God has a muuuuch better plan. Loving you
HI Joanna, I know what you mean about God’s little reminder to us, I like to call them small love lessons I seem to need them all the time myself. Love and Hugs, missing you sweet sister!
