I was going over my work emails earlier this morning and took a short coffee break. When I got myself situated again , I then noticed that My Outlook wasn’t working, and neither could I get Explorer working. I tried to check my wifi and couldn’t even find my network! Panic and frustration started to rise but it didn’t get too far.
I checked my phone and other devices which were all okay. So I decided to trouble shoot. This simple message popped up “Check the switch on front or side of laptop to ensure it is turned on.” It was off even though I don’t remember touching my laptop just moments before. In less than 15 seconds all of my connections had been restored.
My word of encouragement today: Restore your connections
Things can happen throughout the day to disrupt your flow. Sometimes we are not aware of things we accidentally do to cause the disruption. When I didn’t know what to do, I searched “troubleshoot” problem and the answer came. We “troubleshoot” disconnections by praying and asking God for guidance. Proverbs 3:6 tells us that as we acknowledge Him in all our ways He will direct our paths.
We check our internal hardware by praying Psalms 139: 23-24 which says: “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
God is the restorer of the breach. Look to Him today to restore your connections so you can live productively, purposefully, creatively and joyfully! As we reconnect with Him, He uses us to connect with others to be that conduit of grace, love and mercy that lead them back to Him.
Examine your connections today! Make sure that you are plugged into God so that receive all that He has for you, so that you can share with others making this world a better place.
