The Lord, My Mastermatician
Last Saturday, I faced a big challenge, one that made me walk in the valley of the shadow of fear. I was to battle Goliath face-to-face and all I had was a blank paper and writing materials. The odds were against me. This enemy was aware of my archilles’ heel and was ready to strike with full armoury. For the first time in my life, I felt like a loser. I really hate Maths. 😦
So, the battle began at 12 noon and it was very sore on me. With the arrows Poissoned with Binomial and Bernoulli, my chance of winning faced low probability. Failure sneered at me and I could only stare into empty space while trying to remember the jargons I had crammed. The serpent provided an alternative – an inviting, succulent, red apple called cheating. After all, everyone else was having a bite. But then, I am not everyone else. I am a Jesus Disciple and JDs don’t cheat. So, I told the deceiver to shut up, did what I could and committed the rest to the Mastermatician.
And oh, did He jump to my rescue! 😀
Many times, we are faced with situations beyond our capabilities and when we see how others handle same and go scot free or even perform better that we do, we feel like losers. Well, Jesus was a loser too. He was beaten, spat on and considered an outcast, but still conquered in the end. That is why I believe I will conquer too because He is the Lord, my Mastermatician. We are a team and we can never fail.
Faced any tempting situation lately? How did you cope?
