Praise God no matter what…
Monday was such a trying day. Well not really… I was just trying too hard rather than being rational about my research. My trust was actually a bit swayed towards my so called breakthrough in my method… all the fancy equations that made my research approach somewhat more believable. Been there before… i finally burnt myself out at the end of the day. I was still at peace.. thank God but it was another wake up call from God ” leave your burden to me and I give you rest…” I was too caught up in my work that I neglected my other physical and spiritual needs. Yes, I prayed for wisdom, peace and joy but instead of letting the driver take full control of the navigation, I kept on interfering. I should have just enjoyed the ride and learnt along the way. At the end of the day, I crashed and burnt!!! But thank God, He’s still faithful no matter what. And thou Monday was such a disaster, I still praise Him. And I slept well last night!!!
Morning came, I woke up with the word “force” .. I actually spoke it out and stunned myself. I was like..hey is that you God? I felt inspired. So I went back to the university. Did my experiment. Was so at peace.. did the gazillionth experiment. Didn’t really work according to my hypothesis. Then in the afternoon, I noticed a silly logic mistake I did in my program. I misplaced the very function that implements my new method!!!! I placed it at the right line and hurrah… my method produces a much better result than the classical method. The variation of the error depends on the amount of force. I can conclude that my method supports not only small deformation but also large ones as well! The classical method is better when the deformation is small. The deviation between the 2 methods is only about 0.05 – 0.5. Well, a small improvement IS an improvement. And I praise God for being faithful!! He has never failed!! If I am to build monuments of the blessings He has bestowed upon me, they would fill the whole earth :)
I still have some analysis and improvement to be done on my method. But at least I have jumped over one hurdle! God is seeing me through and He’s the pilot!!! He shall fly me through and over the storms!!!
