Can I really do this?

In our office is a gigantic desk! No really it is 84 by 34 inches, weighs a ton and takes up half of the room! 

One of my strengths and weaknesses is figuring things out for myself. Each new endeavor is like a puzzle waiting to be solved. Completing the task increases my endorphin levels as much as working out does! 

Remembering that there was some trick to this desk I scooted under it to take a look at the screws, and began to take them out.  The problem was that they just turned and turned but did not come out! Puzzled, I snapped a picture with my phone and headed off to the Home Depot to see if I could find out what I needed to have in order to remove them.  
Have you been to the fastener aisle?  Thousands of screws, nails, washers, bolts and more overwhelmed my eyes! I left without having any answers to my questions, never asking anyone for help, determined that I would figure it out.
Google has always been good to me so I searched for wood screws and there it was! It felt as though the angels were singing! 

In the back of the desk wall was a cam lock screw that attached perpendicular to another screw. Once it was loosened all I needed to do was push the sides and it would have come right out.  That's what was supposed to happen, but first the very heavy top of the desk needed to be unbolted. To do that, all of the drawers needed to be taken out so that I could get under it. "Can I really do this?"

I pulled out the first drawer, but it wouldn't come all of the way out. "Deep sigh" and puzzled look. I walked out of the room to think on it. 5 minutes later I returned and tried a different drawer, examining the screws and then, "What is this", I muttered out loud. There all along was a toothpick size white lever on each side of the drawers. Just like that, the drawers came out, and I was able to remove the bolts and dismantle the desk. 

Yes Jann, you can really do this!

What I learned

God has given us many tools to help us figure out these puzzling lives. There are times that we can feel overwhelmed by the choices and end up walking way without having any solutions. This is when we need to go to God's Google- His word. 
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 2Timothy 3:16
There is nothing that He can not reveal to us if we look to Him for the answers.

He will be with us!
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8

He knows what we need
Your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Matthew 6:8

He gives us Wisdom!
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

Yes Jann, WE can do this!
