Do you ever think that your learning curve in picking up a new skill or talent is sharper than it is for others? I do. I was convinced that I couldn't learn to use a computer. Later, I was convinced that I wouldn't be able to do more than simply type on a word-processor. And so on.
In starting this blog, I had to face another learning curve. What did I, a stay-at-home mother of five, know about computers or blogging? What did I know about anything?
But I persisted. With my husband's and children's (and sometimes even my grandchildren's) help, I got my blog up and running. When blogger changed its format, I turned to a son to help me figure it out. Again.
Though I struggled (and continue to struggle) with all things computer-related, that is not the biggest learning curve I face. Confronting my own inadequacies, my weaknesses, my fears, my sins is the steepest mountain I must climb. Fortunately, the Savior has provided a way. His way. For there is no other.
This I know for sure: we all must climb our own mountains. The good news is that we need not do it alone.
