Every Sunday, when I go to church, I get inspiration for a new post for this blog. But when I come home, that inspiration is gone. I think it is something to do with the holiness of being inside a church – God’s presence – that gives me the urge to share something with everyone.
So the Sunday that just past, I made an extra effort to collect my inspiration and remember it so that I can blog about it. And here it is – “miracles”.
For those of us who don’t believe in miracles – look around you. When I say miracles, I don’t mean the changing of water into wine, or parting of the sea or walking on water. I am talking about miracles in our daily lives that to many people who don’t think twice, just take for granted.
I’m talking about miracles such as having a friend turn up to your doorstep when you are down, or giving birth to a new born baby, or seeing the clouds in the sky, or someone giving you a smile. So many miracles happen each day to everyone but you need silence in your hearts to be able to see them. If you write down on a piece of paper each miracle that happens to you each day, you will realise that God is always by your side.
At first, you may start off with a blank page….you may not see it…..then you may see one or two miracles….but even then it is hard to identify. Over time, you will see it so often that there is no need to write it down anymore. Otherwise you would be so busy you didn’t have time for anything else! Miracles aren’t necessarily wrapped up nicely like a gift and presented to you in colourful wrapping paper. Miracles can be bad things that happen to you but afterwards in hindsight you realise that it is in fact good for you. For example, you may be running late for work for a very important meeting and you spill coffee all over your freshly pressed shirt – but because you arrived late at your workplace, you survived 9/11.
Another example may be that you experienced a break-up with your girlfriend or boyfriend and you were devastated but your devastation gave reason for another friend to comfort you and thereby you end up gaining a good lifelong friend.
Take some time to think about your day and what miracles that may have happened in your day. There are no coincidences in life, only plans that God has made for us because he loves us so much!
