    There have been many times in my life when I have experienced miracles. One time it was when I was 16 and i went with my friend to her coisins house and these bad _ss guys came that just got out of prison and were doing things "sexual" that I did not need to see, but made me watch, they were all sniffing coke and when they finally got high enough, they screamed at me and said I was a nark and threw me in to a closet, and said I could not come out till I sniff crack with them I told them that I wasn't going to and that they would have to do with me what they wanted. Finally they let me out. Then another time I was trashed, it was my 21st birthday, and I had drank to much tequila and passed out, and a man broke in to my car, and tried to rape me, another time was I was living in Florida and our home got robbed while we were asleep and the man had a knife, but for some reason he looked at me and walked away. and yet another time I had a weird experience, I was crieing so hard, that I had this weird, feeling of being completely empty void of all, yet void of nothing....and there are more but has anyone else have any miracle story's

      I've experienced healing in my shoulder when I was at a College down south and a stranger prayed over me and then randomly touched my shoulder. I popped and I felt a soothing feeling then the aching I had been feeling from my shoulder went away. I had had that for 2 years prior and have never had problems with it since.

      I've also experienced demons AKA Ghosts, Spirits, etc... I used to sleep walk when I was little and I would always end up in our basement and in the furnace room behind boxes and shelves of old things. When I would wake from my sleep walking and if it was still night time I would walk to my upstairs bedroom but would always walk by either a granny in a old chair in the doorway to the downstairs office or in the same office hear and see a huge Bear face that would growl at me if I looked straight at it.
      Also creepy fun fun was when I was working as a dishwasher for a restraunt up north and I had the whole cabin to myself. I lived up there for 5 months and in that time I would feel people stand on my bed and walk around on it (literally feeling the springs bed and I could hear it) of course it was weird but I know what ghosts are and I am unafraid of them any more regardless how often they pop up.

      So yeah thats what I have experienced in a short form.

          So, so, happy for you (and your son, of course).  As the mother of three young adults I can't help but think that one miracle is that you managed to hold yourself together while your son was there.  His service is appreciated by so many.

      Just because my miracles arent a good read makes them know less of a miracle. It was a miracle to get out alive, from two men that wanted to kill me. when I was almost rapped it was in a empty parking lot at 2:ooam and someone came around the corner just in time. And when we were robbed, why would someone not hurt you if you new they were there, standing in front of you more or less. to me that is a miracle. But I did not know there was a definition for miracles

        Actually they were a really good read, and I'm glad you came out of the situations unscathed; but I think it would be bad to call them miracles because it would allow you to believe that God got you out of horrifying situations rather than accepting responsibility for putting yourself in dangerous positions.

          No as a matter of fact, they were miracles. I had gone to my friends cousins house many many times, we would sit around, drink pepsi, laugh, and so on, but one fine night, we were all sitting around, doing our thing and in walks my friends cousins ex husbands uncle that was out of prison on good behavior, and so on. But I will say this, she (the cousin) was a good woman, that ended up having something bad come into her home uninvited. And God was there for us. Now as for my 21 first birthday, I guess you could say that, that was my mistake, for putting trust in my dad once more after failing so many times, at being a dad, for he had promised to take me out to dinner, and for a few drinks to celebrate my 21st birthday, he left me stranded, at the bar and restaurant, and ended up forgetting about our plans, when I finally reached him, he was three sheets to the wind, if you catch my drift. As for being robbed in florida, yes this to was a miracle, for we lived in one of the worse parts of town, and crack heads, didn't care about you, all they wanted was money, for there next high, But I guess I put myself in this circumstance, so it possiable couldn't be a miracle. Thanks smile

    These were miracles ... ?


    For me, miracles are amazing wonderful things, not scary bad things that could have been worse.

    Like the amazing healing experience I had at 37, after which I grew two inches taller, and never lived in fear again.

    So many minor miracles - the right people appearing at just the right time, and so on - but really, I would have to say that healing one, and the times since that I have been able to heal someone else.

    I'm pretty sure that the fact that I haven't been killed by my dad's driving is a miracle in and of itself.

    Every day.  But since you mentioned driving, Sanctus, I'll go with one of those.

    For most of my two years worth of truck driving in Colorado (which just ended in March of '09), I worked straight night shift by choice, sometimes with other drivers in the area but often totally alone (physically).  One night I was dispatched to pull a tanker load of water from a remote location on the Roan Plateau.  The terrain is mountainous, the roads are dirt, it was down around ten degrees above zero, and slick was not the word to describe it. 

    Although I had the tires chained up all around, I got into a very bad situation.  To put it bluntly, I got sort of half-lost and ended up on a REALLY remote piece of road that dead ended where it was VERY tight going to even turn the rig around.  Got that accomplished but knew I was in trouble.  The last quarter mile to the dead end, I'd recognized exactly where I was, BUT.

    The road did NOT formerly deadend at that spot.  Instead it meandered down, around, up, and eventually led to a big wide turnaround area where one of the gas wells we serviced was situated.  But for whatever reason, the road was now utterly blocked.

    That meant I had to head back out.  Trouble was, I was facing a steep climb where I'd often spun out in previous forays, back when they were still drilling that one well.  My trailer was empty, so I could get going quicker and that was good, but less weight in the tanker also means less weight over the drive wheels and thus less traction.  My judgement was that it was virtually CERTAIN that I would spin out and sit there helplessly until rescued.

    THAT would have been a disaster.  I had a golden reputation wth my employer but had spun out just a week or two earlier on the Roan after missing a turn into the place I was supposed to load.  That cost the company hours of paying me without me getting a load.  There's more, but the point was that I COULD NOT AFFORD to have something like that happen on that night.  My reputation would have suffered permanent damage, and in that kind of work, reputation is everything.

    Additionally, there was no cell service in that area.  I'd have at least a two mile hike to get to the upper guard shack, where there WAS service. 

    I was desperate, asked my spiritual guide for all possible help, sang a song that often helps  me in tight spots, and floored it, running the big Peterbilt up through the gears as fast as it would go.  Had the rig spun out, I would have been both totally unsurprised and absolutely horrified.

    So what DID happen?  That truck SAILED on up the grade and topped out without even hesitating, without slipping ONCE so far as I could tell.  It was like we (the truck and I) were charging up that hill on dry pavement!

    I have definately experienced miracles n still seeking them. I'm a 15 years old and Im from Africa. I have always wanted to come to states since I was a kid. I'm originally from Tanzania,Africa. After completing 7th grade in my hometown most of my fellow students were chosen to go to better schools found in Tanzania bt I was not. This really broke my heart knowing that Iam the only one who was not entering High School. I was raised in a Catholic family as I remember wen I was a child we were taught to pray wen we r in trouble or in need. So one night on my bed I prayed telling God to help me get to school. Then few days passed my sister from states called us and told me that they need me to go to States for my cousin's graduation not only me bt also 4 of my relatives were also invited.To make a long story short only me and my mom were accepted to get a VISA, it's really difficult to get a Visa in africa. I really thank God for that miracle now Im in school in NY ,I am smart than ever before n I'm in the best school found in NY. God answers prayers!!

    yes I bet £100 on a 14/1 horse a few years ago after a confident tip. the horse was last place all the way through the 3 mile race and at the last furlong the horse used a turn of foot and shot of like a rocket, passing all but one, the horse came second and I thought Id lost my money, then there was a stewards inquiry, the winning jockey held his whip in the wrong hand and the winning horse got disqualified, So as you guessed my horse won and I won £1500. Took the family on a holiday to Side in Turkey.

    That is what I call a miracle. smile

    I saw my arm grow back and forth until it finally got straightened out to even.  I know, I know...I would've believed it was a psychosomatic motion of me moving my shoulder back and forth, but I know that I didn't and I know what I saw.

    The biggest miracle of course was that God saved a jerk like me.

    There are miracles around us each and every day ... the very breath in our body is a miracle because somebody didn't wake up this morning but we did.  I tend to look for the small miracles each and every day ... the beauty of the sunrise, the changing of the seasons.  But if you want a big miracle, then it would be my daughter.  God will provide for you and you may not understand it.  I believed God for seven years for my little girl and then just when my husband didn't have a job here I was pregnant.  I was concerned about healthcare but a wise woman told me not to be prideful and go on medicaid because that was what it was for ... I followed that advice.  Because I was on medicaid I got to choose my doctor.  I was considered high risk because I had lost a child at fifteen weeks a year earlier so my doctor saw me every week.  Now watch the hand of God, because I was seen every week ... my ultrasound specialist noticed that my womb was opening prematurely.  They sent me to another specialist who told me that I had an incompetent cervix and that I should have had a circlage but that it was too late so I would have to go on bedrest for ... 3 months.  I prayed and asked God to keep my little girl in the womb.  Three months later, my miracle was born ... healthy, beautiful and right on time.  Now, that is an example of God turning a situation around for His Glory ... if my husband had a job I wouldn't have been on Medicaid and then I wouldn't have chosen that doctor who specialized in high risk pregnancies nor gone every week to see him and the ultrasound specialist who caught the fact that I was prematurely delivering ...I think that you get the picture ...God orders our steps and that in itself is a miracle.
