I’ve notified Smart about my case, having to endure the extreme “hotline” of Smart, while queueing for more than an hour twice as I formally file my complaint on my ineffective Smart Bro connection.
Like any regular internet user, we are all familiar with the message that appears on our screen when the connection bogs down—failed to open page.
Some people frown when they see that message, others freak out and get mad because the file they’re downloading was disrupted. While still others go straight to their DSL box and check if there’s a disconnection from their cable.
I won’t deny the fact that in my work where internet connection is part of life, I get affected too when I see the message, failed to open page.
In life, with the fast paced world we’re living in, it’s easy to “connect” through social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, among others–networks that easily “connect” us to people, to friends whose distance in kilometers is narrowed down through the internet.
As I think about my two-week internet problems, a far greater disconnection could be bugging a lot of people in the “fast-paced” world today.
From time to time, it is helpful to remind ourselves how our “connection with God” is doing lately.
Is the “failed to open (Bible) page(s)” been appearing at your brain screen recently?
Have we tried checking out our connection cable? Maybe the connection cable of prayer is “unplugged”?
We might just have to take the time get out of our chair of busyness and give some attention to the loose cable of life so we could get connected again with Jesus.
The busyness of life can be tiresome, burdensome and they often leave a trail of discouraged hearts and downcast faces.
But let me leave you with this refreshing invitation from the Jesus, Author of Life in Matthew 11:28-30–
28 ¶ “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
If you’re tired and discouraged, go ahead and accept His invitation. You’ll never regret it. You’ll be refreshed and you’ll find out that the time spent with Him reverberates throughout eternity.
