Power of the Flash Drive
For some reason my computer would not read my camera card. Every time I would stick the tiny disk into the USB port, the computer refused to open my picture folder. I’d have to put the card back into my camera and continue taking my family photos. However, after several weeks and dozens of photo ops, my camera was jammed packed with beautiful memories; and I desperately needed to upload them to my family blog – the grandparents were waiting!
So I decided to put the pictures on my laptop, save them to a disk and upload them to my home computer. I forgot how large photo and video files are because the entire process took about an hour and used up a dozen CDs. Finally, when I tried to put the last video on a CD, the file was too large. The video could not be uploaded.
I was so frustrated because I couldn’t finish this already aggravating project that I started. I went upstairs and accidentally discovered my husband’s flash drive. I plugged it into the laptop, cautiously put all the files on it and pushed save. It worked! As the files were being transferred, I was reminded that when we try to accomplish goals in our own strength; we will only find ourselves frustrated and inadequate. But when we tap into God’s strength, we will find an endless supply of power, resources and ability.
“But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men this is impossible, but all things are possible with God.'”
– Matthew 19.26 (AMP)
“Father, help me to remember that I am weak and insufficient, but You are mighty and powerful. On my own I can do nothing, but with You in my heart and leading my steps, I can do all things.”
