i believe in miracles..

What is a miracle? 

      mir-a-cle 
             [mir-uh-kuhl]
                -noun
 an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.


That's the dictionary definition of 'miracle', and I think that pretty much sums it up. The only thing they left out is 

that a miracle is always performed by God. Yes, people do it in tribal areas in Africa, but the power that God gave them is amazing. An important thing to remember is that no human can do a miracle by himself. Christ just does it through them. And it's supernatural. Beautiful. Amazing. Surpasses all human understanding. But it's not hard for God. He can do anything, so a miracle is not some big production for Him.

A person may ask 'Why don't I see any amazing miracles today?' Okay, so Christ isn't walking around the earth healing people with His touch or feeding thousands of people with one boy's lunch like He did in Bible times. But He still heals people when doctors say it's impossible; that this person will never be well ever again. He forms babies in a mother's womb, makes flowers grow, and protects the animals of the sea. He puts a rainbow in the sky to brighten our day after a rainstorm. He provides beautiful sunsets for us to marvel at. 

Miracles still happen all the time. Human salvation is even a miracle. It's beyond our understanding how on earth Christ could forgive us. That, my friend, is an amazing miracle that I (and I'm sure all of you) have witnessed firsthand. 

So when some people may tell you that a miracle is 'far-fetched' 'impossible' or 'a fairy tale', don't be fooled. Miracles aren't fairy tales. They're beautiful things performed by God and couldn't be performed by anyone else. Miracles are things we see every day. Babies, sunsets, flowers. Anything's a miracle if it's made by God. 

Here are a few miracles witnessed all the time:

So, I will restate the title of this post: I believe in miracles!

Yes, I believe in miracles also! Just as your post testifies, loveliness can be found in the simple things!
(I think that sometimes when it comes to miracles, most people overlook the small onces...because they are too busy searching for the big ones, know what I mean?)

Thank you for such a beautiful and true reminder! It is very inspiring. :)

Blessings,
Moriah
