I was referring to my travel notes on my device when the screen refreshed by itself. And then, everything was gone… “Add a new note” was all that was left.
The sinking feeling was heavy like a boulder when I recalled that I have not backed up my recent notes and even the help desk guy didn’t have an answer and seemed to have exhausted all checks and options.
I prayed and asked God to please please somehow restore my notes, even though it would seem to be such a trivia plea.
The help desk guy put me on hold and tried to find more senior specialists to address my issue. We were on the verge of giving up when he asked me to look at my gmail account. Amazingly, the notes were there. Backed up in a Notes folder without me ever noticing it!
I thanked the help desk guy and I thank God! It is such an awesome feeling to have lost and found. Especially things we take for granted, but are actually important to us. I couldn’t stop grinning to myself.
And I thought of this hymn,
“I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see”
Thank you God for saving the lost!
Do you have a lost and found story to share too?
