What an iPhone Software Update Taught Me about My Walk with God!

Apple Iphone software updateAbout six months ago, my FaceTime app stopped working on my iPhone. Since I don't use the app often, it wasn’t a big deal…at least not a big enough deal for me to spend time trying to get it fixed.

A few months later my Maps app also stopped working. This was a bigger problem since my travels take me throughout the state speaking.

I made an appointment with the Genius Bar at the Apple store so they could diagnose the problem and repair the phone. Without even touching my phone, the associate told me the problem would resolve itself if I downloaded the latest software update.

When I returned home and attempted to download the update, I couldn’t do so because I did not have enough storage on my phone. I would have to delete apps/files before it would be possible to download the latest update. As is rather common for me, I procrastinated and found what was an easier fix for me. I began printing out directions to my speaking engagement locations from my computer.

The Day I Changed What I Pray!

Let me give you a little background. Before I go into a classroom or an assembly, I pray that God's Spirit will rest upon me as I speak.  I’m aware that His Spirit is always present on the inside of me. My prayer is that His Spirit also rests upon me so the students can sense His presence. I also take authority over every demonic spirit that will try to hinder the students from hearing and receiving my message of TRUTH.

You say the truth and I am happy you tell it like it is because that’s what my generation needs…the TRUTH. ~High School Student
