"When all else fails..."

Every now and then I will buy a product that needs to be assembled or installed in order to work properly. Or I will begin to repair an item and find that what seemed at first to be rather a simple, uncomplicated task has become virtually impossible for me to do. I am certain that I understand what is required; I'm sure that the task isn't beyond my mechanical aptitude; but I just can't get it done.

It is usually at that point that I once again learn the wisdom of the old saying "When all else fails, read the instructions!" Sure enough, when I've read and followed the instructions, I find I'm able to complete the assembly, finish the installation, or perform the needed repair.

Active, persistent prayer
