Today's Scripture: "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit." Pr. 18:21

See it.

Live it.

It happens every now and then. Our phone or computer slows down, hangs or is just non-responsive. It would be nice if our "smart" device could tell us what's wrong with it, but that would be fantasy. If computer logic is affected, you really can't trust anything it says. It's for that reason a restore point exists. That's the date a system backup was made (before certain events, like an update, were made). If your problem can't be resolved by a simple reboot, you may need to restore the system to its previous state before the problem.

This morning I looked at my wife's desktop computer because it was frozen. She was unable to restart her computer using the keyboard. So I told her the secret of overriding computer software. It's called a "hard" boot, or removing the power from the unit and forcing a shut down. Of course you expect the system to awaken with no problem trusting what has worked in the past. Unfortunately a hard boot compares to death in a human. A human reboot does so in the presence of God. Are you ready for that?

Pray it.

I place my life and death in Your hands, God, trusting You completely.
