Writing a blog sounds like a simple thing. Almost anyone can do it. Thousands of blog entries dot the pages of the Net everyday. Some write Christian blogs such as mine. I started one and that is when the trouble began. I do not know if it is Satanic opposition, but it feels like it.
I started the blog. I got one entry posted and then my computer crashed. I owned the computer for over ten years. The printer worked well with it. I put photos on and ran a slide show with my personal pictures. My trusty desktop ran Windows XP I loved it.
One day it kept clicking on and off. Then it refused to start. I wanted to write another blog post and felt angry and frustrated.
My old friend was dead, so I hooked up a little Notebook running Windows 7. I found it not compatible with my printer. Photo posting became a mystery. Everything I tried came out as thin lines signifying nothing. It often froze and the cursor bounced more than a ping-pong ball.
I tried to register the blog on catalogs and found I needed a Meta tag. I hounded my writing friends (thanks Mike W. and all) for a magic formula. It eluded me and I still can’t find what I need for the tag.
I tried to use Google Documents to write the blog. I found that the processor lacked a grammar and spell checker. I bought a disc for a word processor that I used to crank out a couple more blogs.
It crashed, went on strike. I cried from frustration and rage. Then, I prayed and reminded God that I am writing this blog for His glory.
It started working again.
If I needed further proof, today was it. I wrote and saved most of this post. Then, my processor malfunctioned and I lost all of it. I had to start over. God’s word is unstoppable. People and events suppress it for a while but it always breaks free.
