This morning I was on the telephone with a support tech from GoDaddy.com. I didn’t have the answers to his questions, such as my pin number. He suggested I go on-line and look it up. Of course, my sign-in information failed. It took a few more minutes to get a new password and logged in. When I found my four-digit pin, he said, with a grin in his voice, “Now, I can take your money.” All that for a $15.15 annual payment for my domain address. I could picture him laughing and telling the guy in the next cubby about the internet-challenged woman he had to deal with this morning.
Often, when I’m in a mode where I’m not sure of what I’m doing, I become rattled and my ability to think becomes scattered. I fumble around trying to figure out what’s going on. If I were to settle down and ask God for a bit of patience and a clear mind, I might get through the ordeal with less pain for me and the guy trying to assist me.
James told the Jews to pray to the Father because he loves them and can help. Best of all, God won’t laugh or tell anyone about your strange or unusual requests.
Lord, help us seek your advice before getting into an embarrassing situation. Amen.
