Of course, I know that there is no external cause (though it can be hard to convince myself sometimes in a sensory based world) and it is really our own imagination that drives the behaviour. If it is so, I could not think of anything that I would thnk about to make her cry. But her that question changed my state and suddenly, I realized by asking her that question I am also making an assumption that she may not be happy. And she merely plays her part to fullfill what I wished for. Oh, why didn't I see that coming?
For the last three days or so, she had been doing fine, kissing me good bye each morning with a happy smile. I also work on my thinking, accepting how she would be if she is back to her usual self. I would be relaxed, at ease and peaceful and continue to go about my daily walk thereafter. I would be smiling and not frowning on the way out of her school. That would be how I would feel.
As itt is rightly stated in the Bible; Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
Basing on our own human intelligence, we try to rationalize why things happen the way it is and will attribute it to causes based on our senses and often we can be very wrong. Would that not be detrimental if we are chasing the rabbit down the wrong hole in the jungle? A futile attempt to resolve the problem? There is a spiritual solution to every problem as it is stated aptly in this verse :
James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
Why ask another for advice on how to solve your problem? The challenge I realised is not that we do not trust God, we do. But when comes to problem solving, we somehow do not place him as the first priority and that is not because we do not trust him. If we rely totally on him, somehow it makes one/me feel that I am too lazy, laid back and not putting enough effort and bothering/seeking him all the time. It is when we had exhausted all possible human ways, then we go to him for the final breakthrough.
Thank you Father for your teachings. It can comes in so many ways and through people like my daughter in this case to remind me of keeping your words close to my heart. That your way is higher than my way and that I have to surrender myself, my thoughts on the problem and think from the solutions I want and imagine how I would feel when the problems are resolved rather than focusing on the means to solve it. That is my Father's expertise and of no concern of mine.
Try it friends and you would see the same miracle that happens in my case equally applies to you too. Have Faith.
