Searching for Miracles

Hello World!

Hello World!

Many people are on a never ending quest for miracles… looking for evidence that the Lord is working in their lives.  They wonder why God is not revealing himself to them, or to the world in general.

I see things much differently.  Our Lord communicates and speaks to us constantly.  He reveals himself to us in many different ways, and if we invite the Holy Spirit into our hearts, and ask that he open our eyes and ears to him, we will discover the never ending  miracles and blessings of each new day.  The miracles are always there, we just need to expect and be open to them!

This is a little miracle that God blessed me with today.  If I didn’t keep a journal, I would have missed it.  The knowledge that the Lord is ever so close, and sometimes chooses to reveal himself through unexplainable events in my life, just overwhelms me!

So, here is what happened:

My husband and I have been re-watching the old series “Lost.”  Although I know it is not biblically correct, there are many interesting characters, and the story line is filled with symbolism and spirituality.  This series is making me think even more than usual about how our lives all interconnect, and how the Lord is always working all things toward good.  While I was thinking yesterday, I remembered a dream I had in the past about my son and his wife. My curiosity about the dream led me to pick up my journal to investigate.  I randomly opened the notebook to the correct page.

The entry was written on February 4, 2015, and I described the dream I had the night before.  The dream was kind of silly…my son and his wife were telling me excitedly that they were being sent baby powder every day for the rest of their life.  At the time, I remember knowing in my heart that the dream meant a baby would be coming soon!

I had the dream on February 3rd, exactly one year from the date little Brayden was born into our world!  Wow!

This is just a little reminder from God that he is with us always, and there is always more going on in our “unseen” than we are aware of.  The dream was a gift to me, and I would have missed the significance if I did not write it down, along with the date.

Dear Lord, help us to open our eyes of faith, so that we can see, hear, and feel your presence in our lives.  Fill us with your Holy Spirit so that your love touches all the hearts that we encounter in our daily lives.  Help us to always believe, even when we don’t see, hear, or feel you in our lives…for you are always with us.

Scrubbed Clean

It was a little too long since the kitchen floor was scrubbed.  In the meantime, I had been wiping up the little stains that kept appearing, trying to keep it looking “clean enough”.

Finally, the big day…I scrubbed that baby CLEAN.  Being very happy with myself, feeling the clean smoothness under my feet, and smelling lemon in the air, I started a pot of coffee.

Not sure how it happened, but my cup of coffee ended up on the floor.  Did I just do that??? I started wiping it up…

Isn’t that the way it works with our sinful nature?  We confess and repent of our sins, and feel so clean.  We even start feeling that maybe the sin has been overcome.  Then just like the coffee spilling onto the clean floor, our sin spills over our clean soul…and it becomes smudged again.  And this happens over and over again.

Never lose heart!  Never give up!  Never, repeat, NEVER think that Jesus will abandon you.  Jesus is waiting for you to confess again and again, and turn your sin over to Him.  He is always there with you, to scrub your heart and soul clean, with His love and grace.  Enjoy, and bask in His unlimited mercy and love!

1John 1:8-10    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
