Mirriam-Webster dictionary defines a miracle as: an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs. I see two contrasting words in the single sentence: divine and human. And the word that bridges the two: intervention.
When GOD Almighty and us meet at the intersection of love — the manifestation of that unity results in a miracle. The inexplainable happens. The extraordinary illuminates our space. And we stand in awe of His Grace and Mercy — jaw-dropped.
Oddly enough, this occurs even in the subconscious realm. We tend to limit the profound to when thunder roars and lightning rocks the skies. But I would venture to say that the mere beating of our heart, expansion of our lungs, the neurons firing off connections in our brain, the filtering of our kidneys … these bodily functions seemingly working efficiently, simultaneously and without need for us to ‘will’ them into action … would qualify as miraculous if you just stopped to consider the high possibilities of them shutting down without notice.
I don’t ever want to be negligent to thank GOD for each day to which I awaken. He has the final say. One day He will say that the previous one was my last.
The things we have lived through, Sister, have us looking back into that rearview mirror thankful that we escaped the harm that could have swallowed us.
All because GOD chose to gift us with the Present. It’s a miracle that ______________________________________________________ (you fill in the blank). There’s the opening line to your next conversation of praise with your Creator.
Far too many to count and list out, I will leave you with this song and with gratitude from the heart.
I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~
