Trust I Must
My Mac time capsule/wireless router overheated to an early death, so I don’t know when I’ll be able to post this. I don’t know if I’ll get the device working again.
Lord, help. All my written words transfer through our wireless connection! I feel disconnected from the source.
I laugh at how computer-dependent I sound. God is my only Source, and nothing can out-power our connection, not even mechanics.
I sigh because I still don’t know when I’ll be able to “send” this message; but I choose to rejoice because I know Sovereign God says, “My timing is perfect. Trust me.”

Fast forward three days to today: Although we’re past the warranty, Apple sent us a new improved Time Capsule at no charge.
God reminded me of something. The morning before the TC “checked out,” I felt strangely compelled to pray over it. Something I’d never done before. I prayed God would give us many long years with it.
Looking back at the incident, I realize God used it to remind me of the power of prayer. God would take care of me and lead me through the ups and downs.
Have your setbacks ever proven to become steps forward? God, who sees the end from the beginning, continually filters our life circumstances through His loving hands!
