TODAY’S BLOOPER: THE WRINGER 2/08/08
Last night when I put my nightgown on, I noticed that
the pockets were sticking out so I tucked them in. This
morning I was up before dawn working on importing the
new Glossary. I spent a few hours working then took
one last look at it before putting it on line. I had
made the same mistake in every page! I was not a happy
camper and kept telling myself I was NOT going to do
them all over again. Sigh, I was not doing a very good
job at talking myself into that, so I did them over.
I can not even count how many times I have asked the
Lord to help me do things, and suddenly His Spirit will
pop up and bring something into memory that I forgot, or
help me see a problem and also the work-around answer.
It is awesome to realize His help in this way. So I was
wondering how I could have done such a stupid mistake.
As I was thinking that, He brought into memory that I
had forgotten to pray. I did not ask for the Lord’s
help! I tromped into the other room and looked at my
nightgown in the mirror and chuckled. It was inside
I immediately thought about the parable of our lives
being washed, going through the wringer and coming out
inside out! It would be a while before I took my
shower, so I took off the nightgown and put it on right
side out and then looked again. Now it was backwards.
Ever had one of those days?
My whole day was spent going in software circles with
the hopes that there was an easy answer to my need. I
was quite crabby by the end of the day and poooooooooor
Wayne kept praying for me. Finally in a spotlight
prayer I said, “LORD! You told me to consolidate my
life and make it simpler. I have honored you and am
continuing to work through these things with my computer
so I can manage it easier. But this latest project is
not simple, it is complicated!” He reassured me that it
was simple. I just could hardly believe that, but I
have had miracles before in computer land, so I said,
Guess what happened? I was up around 3 AM the next
morning and decided to update one small file in the
glossary. I accidently clicked on something and
suddenly the program took off and did what I had
intended, but without the 10 steps I had done
yesterday. In one simple click I updated a file. I was
astonished. I clicked it again on the next file and it
did the same thing! ANOINTED CLICKER FINGERS!!!! He did
exactly what He has promised. In one simple blooper,
what was complex was now simple.
So whenever you have one of those wringer days, don’t
forget to PRAY. And then ask Him to bring good out of
all your bloopers, and you will be rewarded!
Ps 103:19 AMP
The Lord has established His throne in the heavens,
and His kingdom rules over all.
Rom 8:28 NKJV
And we know that all things work together for good to
those who love God, to those who are the called
according to His purpose.
