The Miracle

How long do you have to wait for a miracle?
I’m not really sure how long you have to wait for a miracle; they are all around us all the time. But sometimes a miracle takes a lifetime, and sometimes not long at all…
There’s the miracle of a new born arriving…hearing a bird sing or watching a sunrise or sunset…those are miracles…
Miracles occur with each new breath we take and each new day that arrives…the miracle of walking and talking when you think about it how does that happen? It’s amazing when your baby takes their first steps and says their first word…it is thrilling, it’s a miracle.
Look around there are miracles everywhere…
And sometimes miracles; the ones we have waited for and prayed for…cried and begged God for, seem as though they will never happen.
Then suddenly, when you least expect it, something wonderful happens…
Out of nowhere your miracle appears and you’re left speechless, dumbfounded, and well just utterly surprised…
40 years I’ve waited for a miracle…40 years in the desert, going round and round and round, wandering, and then suddenly…I still wait to see it unfold and grow and survive…
What an adventure…I can hardly believe it…someone today said, “You’re glowing.”
Happiness does that to you, it makes you glow!
The miracle of love, and life, and new beginnings, are unbelievable…somebody pinch me…is it real?
It’s a lot for the mind to comprehend but without miracles life would be dull, boring a non-life…
Even the miracle of death…I never thought of death as being a miracle before but it really is…
To think that the body can just shut down and you’re gone…is a miracle…
And to have the assurance that because you’ve accepted Jesus as your savior, because He is the son of God, and to know that you will live forever, well, that is truly a miracle…
What are we waiting for…?
Live each day full and free…no worries, no pain, no fear…
Be courageous and daring and watch the miracles unfold before your very eyes…
Even if takes 40 years…it is so worth it!
God bless you! There…are….miracles…everywhere…open your heart and believe!
Your miracle is going to appear, suddenly!

God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. Hebrews 2:4 New International Version (NIV)



I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
