Miracles do happen!

I was so fortunate that last night to my surprise my files could be retrieved all safely, praise be to God...its a simple thing yet not simple at all..I make a mistake, fall in despair regretful of how I let the hard disk drop at of my hands...and all the files lost...and then a few hours later everything is back in front of me...and Im happy what is really in my control? My happiness ? My sadness ? The things I have and belong to me ? The people I love ? Or I have complete control over me?....or in in complete power over my things and my surroundings? I may think at times I am in power and I am great...but really to what degree is that true?....If an earthquake comes tomorrow and my house is all destroyed, or if I happen to be on the beach when a tsunami I really that great? Can I even be sure whether I live another moment? just reminds me of this verse:
 O mankind! A parable has been made, so listen to it: Verily, those on whom you call besides God, cannot create a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatches away a thing from them, they will have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are the seeker and the sought   Quran 22:73

A heavy heart

It hurts...when something you have put your energy and time into keeping is destroyed and gone...I dropped my hard disk on the floor and everything happened so quickly I couldnt event stop it from falling...and all my back up and documents and photos are probably gone forever...Really why are we so dependent on the world and its things that we feel so helpless when something is taken away? that how God wants us to be? Easily shaken? Or how are we to relate to our worldly things in a way that we dont depend on them so much and we realize nothing is infinite...just like how I lost my back up, I may lose many other things in the future...or sadly the people I love.. thats just the way of a thought for me, how are we to live so that we dont depend so much on the world?
