The Awakening

June 7, 2018

Our earthly life can be frustrating

and our human weakness

is like a blindfold

keeping us from realizing the beauty,

the miracles,

and God’s loving hand

guiding and protectig us always.

NO LONGER UNSEEN

January 14, 2017

Open your heart to faith

and pray with hope

unceasingly.

You will be amazed

at the previously unseen miracles

Love has richly showered you with,

which you have taken for granted.

It is never to late to bow down,

to say thanks,

to share the good news.

Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
Isaiah 26:7-9

 

 


PLEASE DON’T MISS YOUR MIRACLE!

THE MIRACLE

 

I cry out

While you hold me close.

Yet I,

So blinded by my own fear,

Am unaware of the miracle

Of your nearness.

The gift is mine.

I have only to choose to receive it.

Be mine.

MIRACLES HAPPEN

April 15, 2016

It amazes me when Christians claim healing and miracles “were back then”and not now!  THEY HAPPEN EVERY DAY and to you and me, yet we get caught up in our “if onlys” and miss them.  In this Easter season as we celebrate our Lord dying on a tree and rising to life again,I can think of 2 miracles in my life involving trees.

 

On the day of Christmas eve in what was then my first home I got up and before coffee headed to the front steps for the newspaper.  Bending to pick it up, in my half asleep stupor, it came to mind that the sun seemed too bright.  I stood up and realized the huge oak tree next to my driveway had fallen during the night . . . I slept through it not hearing the snap,  crash,  crunch . . . and my home was untouched.  

A couple of years ago,  in a different home,  I was awakened by a loud BOOM in the night and in the dark saw little but by day realized a large portion of a tree behind my house fell missing damaging my home by ONE INCH!  

Miracles happen folks!  Sometimes much smaller than trees and other times MUCH LARGER but good gifts come in all sizes!   Take notice and be thankful.

“Shocked by wonder!”

April 7, 2016

Have we become so tainted by our own selfishness

that NOTHING astonishes us anymore? I pray that will never happen to me!

Thank you, Lord, for not giving up on me!

Miracle Cure

November 29, 2014

When you paste a smile on your face just so folks may not catch on to how sad you really are, it seems to eventually mess you up, because without realizing when it happened, the seemingly impossible actually does. You will become genuinely happy. – From Martha L Shaw Thoughts Over Morning Coffee

Share His Goodness!

November 19, 2014

“Give thanks to the LORD,

call on his name;

make known among the nations what he has done.” 

1 Chronicles 16:8

We know of His powerful goodness and love.  Isn’t it selfish to keep this to ourselves?  I believe it is, so, let’s spread the word of all that Jesus has done for us!  The world is so eager to spread the bad news, it is time to return the focus to Christ and the Good News!  Join me, won’t you?  Just this morning I experienced one of those mini miracles we are given every day and don’t always notice.  I awakened stressed and fearful of not making it through my challenges, but this time I stopped and prayed for courage and strength and immediately became aware of His peace!

What has the Lord done for you today?
