Have there been moments in your life where you have felt helpless? Or where you were wishing for a miracle?
Many have experienced moments in their lives where they have felt helpless or wished for a miracle. We want things to revert back to the normal instantly.
It is funny how life works… I believe that life happens, we get wrapped up in the business, the events, and the accumulation of “stuff” and then all of a sudden something happens in which we have no control. It could be health, loss of a job, money issues, or uncertainty of tomorrow.
God does not cause these things to happen, but allows for life to happen. Like most parents, we can give the information to our children, but the decisions they make are all up to them. We are not in control of the choices they make; all we can do is stand by, offer guidance and support to help them through. But the amazing thing about God is that his guidance is beyond comprehension. He is a miracle worker.
Sometimes though, there is something we need to learn before life can change. The learning is for our own good.
It wasn’t long ago that I fractured my neck; C1 burst fracture that only 50% survive an injury and of that 50% a small percentage of people are able to function normally. During that time in my life, He showed me that Trusting in Him makes all the difference.
“She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.” (Mark 5:27-29, ESV)
How we choose to respond to these situations in our lives makes all the difference. I truly believe that the power of choice can create all the difference.
I also believe that doctors do not know it all. They hypothesize based on past practice or conclusions are drawn based on what is the “norm”.
Let me ask you this… Have you seen things happen in your life that do not follow the “norm”?
Have events happened beyond all comprehension? Or do you have to see in order to know that all things with God are perfect, and full of wonder?
He is a miracle worker. All He asks is that we come to Him, Trust in Him completely (Let it Go to God), and let Him lead.
This is hard for us to do at times as so much we would like to control what is happening.
The one thing that all of us have the power to do – is control our response.
Do you believe in miracles my friend? Do you believe that He can help you navigate through the uncertainty?
Take a step out in faith and Trust. Pray, and lift up your worries to Him.
I can tell you from first hand, Miracles do happen, I am one of them.
Do you have any suggestions for our readers of a time where you stepped out in faith? What happened? How did you feel? Sharing has ripple effects.
