A Time of Miracles

Have you ever stopped to take note of the miracles happening around us? While not always an every-day happening if you take the time to notice what does happen, you can see them happening quietly yet purposely in the world around us.

Take for example the two year old little boy in Florida who slipped into his parent’s pool unnoticed. He remained there for at least twenty minutes before he was discovered and rushed to the hospital. He was declared brain-dead and had slipped into a coma yet his parents would not give up as they sat by his bedside throughout the night. Despite the dire predictions of the doctors of severe and lasting damage should he awaken, the next day the little boy woke up, looked around, and stated he was hungry. Amazed, the doctors ran every test they could only to find that there was NO damage and he would be perfectly fine.

Or the story of a woman from Alaska who was riding home in a car late at night with her husband when a moose ran in front of their car. Her husband was killed instantly; she opened her eyes to find the windshield in her lap and only a scratch on her arm. Upon looking at the car more closely, she saw that the strip of metal that had forcefully been pushed in and killed her husband had somehow wrapped itself around her head with only an inch of space between her and it causing it to have absolutely no contact with her head. Thus she survived ...

Are these true miracles? There seems to be no logical explanation as to why these individuals went through what they did and yet came through unscathed …

Now think about the Easter story. You were there, watching the torture and abuse of Jesus. You watched Him faint, vomit, stumble with each step to the top of that hill, every bit a mortal man, and then watched as He was nailed to the cross and hung to die. You continued to watch as the hours passed and you finally heard Him cry out to his Father, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” and watched Him take his last breath and die. As He was taken down, you saw the guards decide it was not necessary to break His legs before placing Him in His tomb as He was definitely dead.

Then, “very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they (Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome) came to the tomb when the sun had risen. But when they looked up they saw the stone (blocking the entrance) had been rolled away – for it was very large … And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, ‘Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples – and Peter – that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.’” Mark 16: 2-7.

You overhear the women tell the disciples what they saw and what they heard so you follow them to Galilee where you, along with them, see Jesus alive and well! Is there any doubt that would be the most remarkable miracle to witness? Does it not give us a foundation to believe that they still happen today?

Perhaps if you have not taken notice of the amazing and miraculous things happening in the world around us it is because you have become so disjointed from the miracles in the past and too busy with the day-to-day routines and rituals of your life today that you have become desensitized to their existence at all.

Don’t ever forget the power of our Lord and His Father, our God, and tune into Their reassurances through these and other miracles that happen in our world all the time aimed, perhaps, to help carry us through the times of trouble or times of doubt. It started with Jesus’ being sent down to us; then His sacrifice and suffering to save us; culminating with His rising and showing us one true and non-debatable miracle. Don’t ever lose sight of this amazing miracle!

Open your eyes and appreciate the miracles around us now … they are real and they are a gift from God.

      Living outside of Tampa, I heard of the vision of the Virgin Mother appearing in the glass of a bank building downtown. Upon going to see it, there was no doubt that it was she, and the crowds surrounding it relected the reverence of the site surrounded by the multitude of flowers left. No matter how much they tried to clean the glass, the could not make the image disappear!
