I am awful with technology. I am illiterate when it comes to the language of technology, and I don’t understand how any of the devices I own work. Technology baffles me and mocks me. I use it, but I’d rather lose it. My brain and today’s technology are not friends.
Still God insists that my ministry require a computer, access to the Internet and Facebook. Lately He seems to be nudging me toward blogging. So I spent an hour this morning trying to figure out the difference between a blog and a website. Through this experience, I have come to understand Moses’ position when God called him to speak to Pharaoh.
Moses had a stutter and wasn’t comfortable speaking, so he asked God to let Aaron do the talking. So here I sit, stuttering and stammering with technology, praying God will send me an Aaron. I need someone with the capability to understand computers, blogs and the Internet and to explain this cyber world to me. Warning: you will have to explain things more than once.
My inabilities show me God’s abilities. I must depend upon Him to meet the needs of this ministry. Every day, I am reminded of how truly helpless I am with technology, and then I marvel at what He accomplishes, in spite of my clumsy, faltering ways.
“Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
