Where is my Miracle?~
Timing is God’s specialty, and when things seem like nothing makes sense, or can possibly turn out well……..God is in control. Yes, He is never caught by surprise, unlike us. As a matter of fact, in my own personal life, He has shown up on three separate time over the past 7 years, on the same day of the year! Who else could possibly orchestrate the timing of life events, which were very significant events in my life, on February 10th……….2007, 2008 and 2013? He even had a leap year, which gave God 366 days to work with, and yet it was February 10th. So, yes….as I find myself at another ‘crux’ in life……….with circumstances that no one in there right mind would desire, I was looking for my miracle this past week, as February 10th slipped by once again, unnoticed. God has His ways, and His timing……and has got everything in my life, in the palm of His hand. I’m still looking for my miracle, and there are incredible things, that are on my horizon that only God knows if they will materialize or not. It’s all a part of my DMP, so I’m very eager to watch as ‘the film rolls forward!’
All these crazy things in my life, and it’s also no surprise to God, that I’m on this MKMMA journey…….and that last month I read in Og Mandino’s Scroll IV, that I am nature’s (God’s) greatest miracle. Sometimes we look for the miracle, but we also must realize that we are God’s greatest miracle. It’s so good to appropriate that truth, within our souls. With His help, all things are possible! On that note, many wonderful things are taking place in my life, and I am grateful for all of those gifts and I acknowledge them……….and give thanks to God for them.
Yes, now what shall I do? Considering this Great Master of Time, which He has generously given to each of us, for a designated period of time upon earth, and an eternity that continues after our passing, I press forward. In Philippians 3: 12-15, it states, “But one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you.” In Scroll V, of Og Mandino’s book, The Greatest Salesman, my question is also answered from within its pages, “I will live this day as if it is my last. What then shall I do? Forgetting yesterday, neither will I think of tomorrow. Why should I throw now after maybe? Can tomorrow’s sand flow through the glass before today’s? Will the sun rise twice this morning? Can I perform tomorrow’s deeds while standing in today’s path? Can I place tomorrow’s gold in today’s purse? Can tomorrow’s child be born today? Can tomorrow’s death cast its shadow backward and darken today’s joy? Should I concern myself over events which I may never witness? Should I torment myself with problems that may never come to pass? No! Tomorrow lies buried with yesterday, and I will think of it no more. I will live this day as if it is my last…..and if it is not, I shall fall to my knees and give thanks!”
So, I continue on my journey……..to see all the exciting things that lie before me! The best is yet to come!
