Sometimes I do (the word I would use here is “stupid” but I am trying to not use the S-word so much, so I’ll go with) mindless things. Today I deleted an important file from my computer.
It represented multiple hours upon hours of work and it must be re-created this week.
I know how it happened. I know what I should have done to prevent it happening. I know what I should have done so that I could more easily recover from such an event. This represents about 5 layers of “my bad” and I am owning it. I messed up rather largely.
I am, as I blog on a different device, running a data rescue recovery process in hopes that it will be findable. I will be willing to spend some of my cash money to complete the recovery if that will save me what I imagine could be a couple of l o n g days of work.
Want to pray with me that God will choose to extend abundant grace? Whether the file is recoverable or I simply have the opportunity to re-create and am able to do it joyfully, that will be grace. That will be God and not me.
“Me” would rather throw things and pitch all sorts of fit.
