Miracles

Last week Tab was telling me about what happened in New York-the dad who threw himself and his five-year-old daughter in front of the train.  You can read this article if you haven't heard the story. 

As he was telling me the daughter was completely fine, unharmed, and just had a few scratches my thirty-six-year-old self started thinking about how they must have fallen in just the right way for her to not get hit.  I was even mentally picturing how that all had to have played out in order for this child to be safe. 

Meanwhile, I didn't even know Ebby Lee was listening to the story and her ten-year-old self spoke up with, "What a MIRACLE!  Jesus saved that little girl!".  Childlike faith right there. 

Ebby Lee's so right.  That MIRACLE happened right before our eyes!  {While I wasn't there lots of witnesses were.}  But how often miracles go unnoticed or are rationalized in our heads as just simply "luck".

Just wanted to send a little encouragement to all of you today.  God is still performing miracles.  We just have to be looking and sometimes through child like eyes to notice.

Ebby Lee was right! What a miracle! I'm joining in prayer today with many others, praying for a miracle for Eva Love. What a great reminder that He is most definitely still the God of miracles!!!

I thought you were going to end the post by asking people to post any miracles they have experienced lately! You should totally add that! Thank you for the encouragement this morning!

Yes! I have always loved the quote "I am realistic, I expect miracles." I have seen so many miracles in my life especially with my kids. My youngest son had a stroke and the doctors said he may never walk or swallow again. BUT God said to expect Him, so we did. We prayed and decreed the power of God over our son and he is completely healed! He is the God of miracles! I've also been praying for Eva Love - believing and expecting her miracle too!

My husband fell off a 9 foot porch last year and broke 2 vertebrae in his back. Though he did need surgery to have 2 rods put in, where he fell was a miracle! He remembers his head going forward so he didn't hit his head at all and he fell into between a board that had rusty nails sticking out and a pile of rocks. The Lord's angels definitely directed his body falling into the safest place possible to keep him from further harm!
