Why Do I Doubt?

It's very strange. I pray for things to happen and when they do my mind turns towards the physical and denies the supernatural. Perhaps it was just a coincidence, there's a logical explanation. I can always think of a logical explanation. The situation that comes to mind happened yesterday. For those of you who are unfamiliar with graphic design, let me give you a little bit of context for this miracle. In Photoshop you work with layers. Think of a bunch of transparencies with a different drawing on each one. When you put them all together you get a complete picture. Now, if you flatten an image in Photoshop you combine all of those layers into just one layer. Once you save that file your layers are lost forever. I flattened my image and I saved it and then realized that I needed to edit a layer. This is a terrible thing. I prayed that God would unflatten my image and wallah it was unflattened. I don't know how this happened but it did. So why is it that I try to explain this away? Why not just accept it at face value. It's a computer age miracle. God healed my file. Thanks God.

i hate doubt. it ruins me.
but rather than the logic bothering me... its the emotions sending a bit of troubles my way.

That was a miracle. I hate flattening and finding a mistake. Just last week I missed a very expensive deadline (several million $$$). I prayed, and asked a couple of people to pray, and I was granted a 30 minute extension! I do believe very much, don't doubt. My challenge is remembering to PRAY and ASK for help, instead of trying to solve it myself.
