All you Apple people don’t gasp in horror, when I tell you that I have never used a Mac :0 I have an iPhone, does that count?
I heard great things about Apple’s computers. How they don’t crash, How they rarely have problems, how they are faster, how they are overall superior. But since I was familiar with the PC, I never switched. I was comfortable with Windows, I was used to the PC, so when the time would come to get a new computer, I would stay with what I knew.
Over the past five or so years, every laptop I have owned has made me want to do this-
I’ve had so many frustrations with the three different brands of laptops I have owned over the past five years. Whether it be that it crashed (5 times and yes you would’ve thought I would’ve learned my lesson and backed up my stuff after the first time!), was too slow, was too old, or was just downright annoying. I have often thought thatI should just go get a Mac.
Well about a month ago, after I found out I was going to be adding video editor to my job description,I took the plunge and got this baby!
It came fully loaded with tons of amazing video, audio and graphic design programs. Has a huge harddrive, is supposed to be super fast, and has a lot of memory. When it arrived I was so excited! I opened it up, powered it on, and was immediately overwhelmed.
Let me say I love learning new things, and I am very excited about learning how to use my new computer. I just feel like I am too busy right now to have a learning curve and to take the day to transfer all my files over. So although, my new Mac would probably make my life easier, it is still sitting on my desk. And every day, I am frustrated at how slow my laptop is working.
Kinda silly right? The answer is right in front of me, readily available to me, and yet I still continue to ignore the solution and keep dealing with the problem.
You probably know where I am going with this. How often in life do we have a problem, either something big, or a mild annoyance. We have a way to find the answer-
But either we are too busy, or don’t want to put in the time needed to find it. Just like with my Mac, it doesn’t do a whole lot of good if it’s just sitting on the desk.
Psalm 119:105 says Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
If I spend the time to set up my new computer and figure out how to use it, my life will be a little easier. If I spend the time to read God’s Word and apply it to my life my life will be a lot easier! And so will yours!
