Yesterday I was so happy to be able to say I finished the newsletter, Prime Time News, and had it printed and was ready to send it off to the internet list of folks who read it. After being sick for two weeks and still not completely better I wasn’t sure I could even get it finished. But it was and I was very happy.
It wouldn’t go. I was so frustrated. I did everything I knew to do including praying…”Lord, please help me get this sent off.” It still wouldn’t go. I finally gave up and wrote a short note telling my readers of my problem. I got one clever comment back. Then I shut the computer down and went to bed.
This morning after drinking a cup of coffee, I booted up the computer and decided to try sending it again. It went!!! I did it!
Well, now let’s be honest. Jerry woke me up to what I had just done…
Last night I prayed for the Lord to help me.
This morning when it worked, I said: “I did it!”
Oh, who did it? Not me. Thank You, Lord, for sending the newsletter off this morning.
I was feeling very guilty. I didn’t mean to take the credit, it just came out. To make me feel better Jerry admitted when he’s been working on the car and can’t get something to fit or to work he’s prayed, “Help me, Lord.” Then when it worked he said, “Oh, I finally got it.”
I guess most folks are guilty of this. I don’t want to be but I’m human too. What about you? When thing go wrong do you go to the Lord and when things go right, do you take the credit? Lord, help us…!
