Plugged IN


MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE ALWAYS HAD ANDROID PHONES AND OUR CHILDREN ALWAYS HAD IPHONES. IT WORKED FOR WHAT WE NEEDED AND FOR WHAT OUR CHILDREN NEEDED OVER THE YEARS.


HOWEVER, WITH BABY GIRL TRANSITIONING TO COLLEGE THIS PAST SUMMER, I DECIDED IT WAS HIGH TIME FOR US PARENTS TO GET OURSELVES ROCKING WITH THE IPHONES. THERE WAS NO WAY WE COULD STAY ON THE “OTHER SIDE” NOT BEING ABLE TO FACE TIME WHILE OUR DAUGHTER WAS AWAY….THAT WAS NOT HAPPENING. GREAT FOR US PARENTS….MMM BUT NOT SO SURE IF BABY GIRL WAS ALL THAT THRILLED AT FIRST LOL.

I WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT OUR NEW IPHONES. I WAS READY. IT WAS EASY TO TRANSFER OUR CONTACTS AND PICTURES FROM ONE PHONE TO THE OTHER. EVERYTHING WAS AWESOME STARTING OUT.

HERE WE ARE A COUPLE OF DAYS IN AND I AM NOT TRANSITIONING WELL AT ALL. I AM JUST LOST. AND MY HUSBAND…FORGET IT. HE WAS IN A WORSE STATE THAN I WAS TRYING TO NAVIGATE THIS NEW DEVICE. WE WERE SOME KIND OF PITIFUL LOL.


A COUPLE OF MORE DAYS PASSED AND THERE WAS A MESSAGE I RECEIVED ON MY PHONE WHEN I WAS TRYING TO DOWNLOAD AN APP. THE MESSAGE REPORTED THAT MY DOWNLOAD FAILED BECAUSE I WAS NOT CONNECTED TO WIFI. THERE WAS ANOTHER TIME ONE MORNING WHEN I GOT TO MY PHONE I SAW A MESSAGE SAYING MY PHONE WAS NOT UPDATED BECAUSE IT WAS NOT CONNECTED TO THE CHARGER AND MY PHONE WAS NOT LOCKED.

IN THE FIRST EXPERIENCE MY PHONE APPARENTLY HAD TO BE CONNECTED TO WIFI IN ORDER TO DOWNLOAD SOME OF THE APPS I WANTED. AND ON ANOTHER OCCASION IT HAD TO BE PLUGGED IN OR CONNECTED TO A POWER SOURCE AND ON LOCK MODE IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE UPDATES BEING SENT.


I LEARNED A LOT FROM MY IPHONE THOSE FIRST SEVERAL DAYS THAT REALLY BLESSED ME. I SAW MYSELF IN THAT IPHONE CONSIDERING THE TIMES I WAS TRYING TO DOWNLOAD THINGS I WANTED ON MY OWN DEPENDING ON MY OWN BATTERY. BUT THOSE DOWNLOADS WERE FAILING BECAUSE I WAS NOT CONNECTED TO WHAT GOD WAS DOWNLOADING FROM HIS HEAVENLY WIFI. I THOUGHT ABOUT OTHER TIMES WHEN HE WAS TRYING TO UPDATE ME TO PUT SOMETHING FRESH AND NEW IN ME, BUT THAT TOO FAILED BECAUSE I WAS NOT CONNECTED TO HIM THROUGH HIS SON JESUS AND HIS HOLY SPIRIT WHICH ALL MAKE UP THE POWER SOURCE. YOU SEE THE APPLE COMPANY UNDERSTANDS THE IMPORTANCE OF DOWNLOADS AND UPDATES. THEY KNOW THAT UPDATES AND DOWNLOADS COULD TAKE ANY WHERE FROM SECONDS TO SEVERAL MINUTES AT A TIME AND THEY DO NOT WANT TO TAKE THE RISK OF YOU BEING IN THE MIDDLE OF AN UPDATE AND THE PHONE DIES. WELL WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL ANYWAY YOU MAY ASK? UPDATES AND DOWNLOADS CALL FOR THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO OPERATE SO YOU WON’T BE BEHIND WITH COMMUNICATING AND FUNCTIONING AT OPTIMUM.

ISN’T THAT SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT? WHEN WE ARE DISCONNECTED FROM GOD’S POWER SOURCE, WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO “DIE OFF” AS IN LOSE HEART OR AS IN QUIT IN THE MIDDLE OF WHAT HE IS TRYING TO DO. OTHER TIMES WE TRY TO RECEIVE HIS UPGRADES THROUGH OUR OWN STRENGTH NOT HEARING FROM HIM AND SEEING WHERE HE IS IN OUR LIVES. WE TRY TO DOWNLOAD DREAMS AND THINGS WE THINK WE WANT THAT HE DID NOT ORCHESTRATE OR ORDAIN. HIS WORD SAYS TO DELIGHT OURSELVES IN THE LORD AND HE WILL GIVE US THE DESIRES OF OUR HEART. THIS IS WHERE OUR DESIRES ACTUALLY BECOME WHAT HE DESIRES BECAUSE WE ARE CONNECTED TO HIM. IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO BE CONNECTED TO GOD RECEIVING WHAT HE HAS FOR US. IF WE DON’T WE WILL FIND OURSELVES NOT PROPERLY FUNCTIONING WHICH WILL CAUSE INEFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION NOT OPERATING AT GOD’S BEST.


THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BE UNPLUGGED AND CORDLESS. GOD IS SENDING AUTOMATIC UPDATES THAT WILL BRING BLESSINGS INTO OUR LIVES AND THOSE AROUND US. YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS YOUR UPDATES AND BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE RIGHT THINGS FOR THE SEASON YOU ARE IN. PLUG INTO TO HIS PRECIOUS WORD. PLUG IN SPENDING TIME IN PRAYER, PRAISE, AND WORSHIP. PLUG IN GETTING PLANTED IN A BIBLE BELIEVING SPIRIT FILLED CHURCH….PLEASE.


I CHALLENGE YOU TAKE THE TIME TO LOCK YOURSELF IN FOR A FEW MOMENTS IN A DAY OR AT LEAST START WEEKLY UNTIL YOUR SPIRIT IS TRAINED TO DESIRE MORE AND MORE OF HIM. I GUARANTEE IF YOU STAY CONNECTED, YOUR SPIRIT WILL NOT DIE OFF AND YOU WON’T LOSE HEART. YOU WILL BE STRENGTHENED IN THE LORD AND WILL BE EMPOWERED TO CARRY OUT HIS WILL AND PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE THE WAY HE WANTS YOU TO…….BUILDING COMMUNITY AND BUILDING HIS KINGDOM.


PRAYER: GOD I HONOR YOU TODAY. YOU ARE KING AND YOU REIGN IN MAJESTY. HELP ME TO PLUG INTO YOU RIGHT NOW. LORD SYNCHRONIZE MY HEART WITH YOURS. I TAKE DELIGHT IN YOU TODAY AND EVERYDAY SO YOUR DESIRES BECOME MY DESIRES. INCREASE MY FAITH. I YIELD MY APPETITE TO YOU RIGHT NOW AND I DECLARE I WILL DESIRE AND RECEIVE THE DOWNLOADS YOU HAVE FOR ME. I YIELD TO YOU NOW AND I DECLARE YOU WILL STAY PLUGGED NOT JUST TO RECEIVE YOUR UPDATES BUT BECAUSE I WANT TO BE PLUGGED IN TO YOU THROUGH YOUR POWER SOURCE. I WILL NOT RUN CORDLESS ON BATTERIES THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO DIE BUT I WILL STAY CONNECTED TO YOU. IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.
