What it is to be humbled.

Should I call her Miss Fancybags for going hiking with a fancy bag?

A few days back I wrote, when you are in a crisis, you need need some form of external intervention. Solving a crisis alone is akin to clapping with one hand. While you can clap your one hand against a wall and produce a sound, it isn’t the same as an actual clap. Similarly a crisis invariably involve someone or something other than you and a fair assessment needs hearing all angles of the crisis. And when that intervention happens for good, there can be nothing more humbling. Today I felt humbled by God’s intervention. While I cannot say what the details are, know that I am no exception. Like everyone on this planet, I do go through crisis once in a while and my current crisis was begging for intervention. Hence I wrote this post. To be humbled is to be surprised like no other surprise. When you think there is no light at the end of the tunnel and then you ask Him, why isn’t He helping out and then you see a positive intervention, it can be overwhelming. All your assumptions go for a toss. All your anxiety then feels ridiculous. All your logic that you thought was pretty rational, will then seem irrational. Another surprising factor is the form of intervention. This can be unexpected too and truly humbling. It is humbling to see that not everyone sees the same. It is humbling to know that there are people who step out of their realms and want to resolve for the sake of good alone.It is humbling to see one’s experience is nothing compared to what inexperience can sometimes do. It is a truly humbling day to me. For you, you might be think what is all this riddle about? Well, forget about the riddle. The takeaway from this post, if there is one, is to believe Good exists no matter what.
