Towards the end of last school year, I prayed for better time management skills. I felt I had been spending too much time on the net just playing Scrabulous, catching up on news and trivia about the Blue Eagles. =P
This summer, I especially needed to handle my schedule wisely, because of how hectic my summer Montessori training was, on top of getting all my things from Federal Way unpacked. When I wanted to set-up my Wifi, I could not, for the life of me, figure out how to penetrate our super-secure system in the house. I’d bring my laptop to the library, to school, and even back to Federal Way, and it would gain access easily, but our home network was something else. It was no biggie though. Because I had access in school, I didn’t really feel a huge loss. In fact, I appreciated the time it afforded me to prepare for class each day without any online distractions.
One day, I was browsing through my notes, and I got to the page where I kept track of all my petitions to God. On each page are two columns – one for the prayer petitions, and one for how God answers them. I had some free time, and began updating the second column. Guess what? Two of my previous entries were, “help with time management” and “exercise more and surf less/no Scrabulous”. Amazing! I had actually asked for it; I just had forgotten, and/or probably did not expect that God would answer my prayer that way. A month later (although it took me one and a half-months to notice it because Facebook was a blocked site in Bothell), I learned that Facebook had taken Scrabulous out as an application. Woo-hoo. Thank you, Lord. I know you always answer prayers!
