The past three days, I have been doing nothing about a family rift. Actually, one thing. Immediately following the incident, I let it go and asked God to deal with it. I've spent my days going about my business. Aside from a few short periods of weepiness, I've been stress free and happy. This alone is a miracle, from one control freak, driven to "fix" everything; especially where my family is concerned.
At 11 pm I checked my phone and discovered a darling photo of one of my fabulous granddaughters. I responded as I normally would. Before too long I was having a normal, loving conversation with my child.
I do not know what changed between Saturday and today. I do not know what God performed in her life these past days. Frankly, it is none of my business. Right now I sit here with a grateful heart, strengthened faith and wonder at the huge change in my mind.
Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing. One step at a time, little by little, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly, change happens when you ask God for help. Fantasizing powerful faith and steadfast belief.
