How many times are we shown God's miracles, but are not willing to believe that they are true miracles. We say it would be easier to believe if only we could see the miracles that Jesus perfomred in the Bible. We have become so blind, that we often don't see the miracles in those things that are right before our eyes. I am willing to believe, that He shows us miracles everyday, from a butterfly, to the stars in the sky. One of my favorite miracles is the birth of a child. Have you ever heard a child laugh and thought "That's one of God's miracles"? To think this child started out at 1/200th of an inch, and became this living, breathing and yes, laughing, crying, bundle of joy. The odds that were overcome, the number of things that had to come together to make this child, are just phenomenal. It can be nothing short of a miracle. The amount of knowledge that they soak up over the years is amazing when you think about it. From connecting the dots to dotting all the "i's" and crossing all the "t's" or motor skills to life skills, how does it all come together if not through God's creation? I’m not saying that any of us are perfect by any means. We all know there's only one who was perfect. We have our flaws, but most of us survive from day to day. And each of us, even with all of our imperfections, is one of God's miracles. He new us before we were born and had a plan for us. I was born two months early and survived with no major health problems during a time when not many infants survived a premature birth. Yes, I had to catch up to the others eventually, but God gave me the ability to do that. He made me who I am. I often wonder why He allowed me to survive. I have to ask myself, "What purpose does He have for me?" I am also willing to believe, that He uses all of His miracles for His plan. I am sure I have a purpose and I am willing to ask the Lord to guide me in finding just what His purpose is for me. What about you?
