It most certainly was not easy! I have that Staples rubber button, that when you press it a mocking voice declares that you had no struggle at all to do the impossible. I am not a teenager anymore, Chinese friends think I look like the Colonel, Filipino friends think I am more like Moses! Even though I majored in Chemistry, Physics and Maths that was actually when we did big calculations using logarithms and pocket calculators had not even been dreamed of. So it is a constant challenge at my age to keep up with 8 year old’s in the cutting edge digital world. I had to get an iPad3 just to prove I could, as well as survive peer pressure even amongst pastors. But when it comes to finally being responsible for the uploading and formatting of the IFC web site not to mention Mail Chimp, Facebook and HootSuite…scream! I have had tutoring from a very patient techie but this time it was me riding the digital bike alone without the training wheels. And I did it! Today I have had the gift of time and sunshine on the patio to experiment wildly in all directions, and it seemed to work in the end with only one panic call to my digerati. But in the weekI prayed a prayer. Facing the www. it felt more like a range of mountains MMM. Then I remembered what I had read recently in Exodus 36:1-2
“Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whom the LORD has put skill and intelligence to know how to do any work in the construction of the sanctuary shall work in accordance with all that the LORD has commanded.” 2 And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whose mind the LORD had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to do the work.
I prayed for the Lord to give me wisdom, skill and intelligent understanding to do a good job. Perhaps the real factor was that my heart was stirred and I was going to climb that mountain with whatever it took. With God all things are possible. Phew!
