Miracles, Everyone Qualifies (A to Z Challenge, Letter M)

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

― Albert Einstein

The letter “M” immediately brought to mind ‘Miracles’.  In the Bible, Jesus performed miraculous healings for believers and non-believers alike; He wowed the crowd by multiplying provisions more than once to feed thousands.  That’s the vast, infinite love of God, whose mercy doesn’t differentiate, but is purposeful:  He longs to draw all people to Himself, into His grace for salvation.  His heart for us is frankly unfathomable. 

It’s clear to me, God is still in the miracle-working business today.  Some are headline-making ones that grab people’s attention—the faithful, and doubting critics alike; some are quiet, subtle, known only to those who receive and perceive them.

My life is a miracle…not the kind that warrants media mention, but BIG to me.  I’m an Overcomer, by faith and strength which come from partnering with God—not the result solely of intellect or creativity, by self-effort diligently applied.  I’ve learned to tune-in and appreciate “everyday miracles” which some people miss or call coincidence, positive energy, karma, etc.  No, the favor God shines on my life—evident through His protection, provision, and presence in the center of my circumstances—is Miraculous. 

Often we forget to consider as miracles, all the devastating things God prevents from happening.  Example:  when we’re impatient due to slow traffic…we may not realize He’s kept us from a fatal accident ahead.

Believe what you like.  Each day that I don’t throw myself under a bus is a miracle…and I give all honor, praise, glory to GOD

    • Bless you for hearing my true heart, Regina. After a few bumpy days, JOY has returned so that I can revel in every remaining day of Passion Week–hard as it is to consider our Lord’s agony. I’ve been watching a series on the History Channel, “Jesus: His Life”–have you seen it? It’s a wonderful docu-drama with a whole panel of credentialed theologians and historians…I’m getting so much out of it. I hope you are doing well, staying positive about your upcoming surgery…I truly wish I could be there with you–but know I am there in heart and spirit ❤
