The first place we look nowadays to find answers, is online. Years ago, we did not have that option. It;s so easy with just a few words in a search engine and there’s your answer – or not!
If you are like me, I have to keep re-wording my question in order to find what I’m looking for. There’s a lot online to “weed” through, and it’s not always found on the first page. Sometime you have to dig deeper to find what you are looking for – hopefully a perfect match.
However, here’s the conundrum. In the search for the answer, you find several questions you never even thought about! Now it starts getting complicated. What you thought was an easy question, generating a simple answer, now has generated more questions and you’re more confused than ever!
What about this – will it lead to a problem with that? Is this the way to go – or that way? It’s as if you are standing at a crossroad – a 4-way intersection with arrows pointing in all directions. Go this way – no, go that. Is anyone relating to this?Then after much time wasted, you are more confused than ever. You now have even more things to be concerned about than when you started looking for that one simple answer!
Lately I’ve had more than enough information as I searched for a computer to meet my needs. Reviews were even more confusing.
Wasn’t this supposed to be simple? I finally decided on a computer I thought was perfect for me. That opened up a whole “new can of worms”. Fortunately I had a friend to help me with dealing with outside vendors – we must read the fine print and have our antennae up to see something out of the ordinary. Out of stock, can’t order online. As soon as one thing is solved, another crops up you haven’t thought about. There’s the conundrum.
But God! He always shows the way without conundrums and makes the path clear. No rabbit trails, no confusion, and He will customize it just for you. We’ve gotten so accustomed to internet searches, that we sometimes forget that God has all the answers if we just go to Him and ask. You don’t have to find the right words for the search engine – He already knows what you are going to ask before the words come out of your mouth.
Next time you’re searching for answers, just pray and the conundrum will fall away.
