However, this time, the tech guy was really good, and incredibly patient. When I described my problems, including those with my art program, he was particularly concerned. He himself is an artist, and he knew how frustrating it can be to have an art program lag behind the pen strokes.
"That is unacceptable, and we will fix it," he promised.
He trouble-shot all kinds of potential issues, and then found the problem. Malware. My malware detector was turned off, unbeknownst to me, and had let a virus in. He even had me test my art program after he thought he solved the issue. The horse picture at the top of this blog is the sketch I produced while he tested CPU output and other things I didn't understand.
It was SO satisfying to state the problem, go to an expert who could solve it, and have it neatly solved. All was set right and the world was as it should be.
This is what will happen when Jesus returns. The problem is sin. God is the only one who can solve it. His timing may not be my desired timing for when this problem is solved once and for all, but He assures us it will be.
All will be set right, and the world will be as it should be.
However, not yet.
So this Monday, as every Monday, I will head off to the sidewalks of the busy abortion center to speak for the unborn babies who cannot speak for themselves. The world is very NOT right at that dark place, but my Cities4Life team and I go with the light of Jesus and the hope and promise that even this horror will be set right one day.
"This is unacceptable and I will fix it," God promises.
All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
