What would have to happen for you to know you have experienced a miracle?
Miracles happen every day. We just don't recognize them. So many go unseen by human eyes.
I have experienced many miracles the biggest one being my husband, who fell off a ladder onto a steel fence post and was impaled then got himself off and into the house over 100 feet away, when he was cut open to take what was left of the kidney the post went through the doctors found he had an abdominal aneurism which had no symptoms and they were able to stent the artery (Count Down to a Miracle.)
It was a miracle that I did not drown (If You Go To the Blue Hole and drown.)
Blessings to you Demas.
Shyron what a miracle for your husband. I can't believe it! May be you and Demas should write an article on your miracles. I would love to read it.
I did write about my husband and about the Blue Hole. Count Down to a Miracle and (If You Go To the Blue Hole and drown.
Perspy.....I believe I have experienced NUMEROUS events/incidents that can be described as "Miraculous." Through the years, things have occurred, transformed and/or become obvious yet seem to have NO OTHER explanation aside from a miracle,
Further, I agree with Lori P's comment, wholeheartedly. Miracles are occurring all the time, which we are not aware of in specific ways.
For those who do not believe, no proof is possible. For those who do believe, no proof is necessary. Have a Miraculous day, Perspy! Peace, Paula
What a nice question. I like Paula's notion of some kind of need of proof, which I do not need.
I just cannot think of this question without immediately going to my four children. Perhaps we look at birth as an every second in the world occurrence but to me, each one still is a miracle.
I have experienced miracles in my life. Like Paula said no proof is necessary. Like Lori said they happen every day. Here is a quote to ponder;
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
– Albert Einstein
I don't think I am qualified to answer the question since I believe I have experienced miracles and will.
What would have to happen? Seems the question should be what has happened. Like others have said, you don't need prnof if you believe. What defines a miracle in your eyes? Unexplained events can qualify, which I have experienced or personally observed to various degrees. There are medical miracles like the teen who survived her parachute not opening during a skydive, for instance. On the other hand, simple things in everyday life that can be explained through science may also qualify as miraculous. If you ask me, all of life is rather miraculous, every aspect of it. . .from a cosmic level like how life and planets are formed to things on a very personal qualify.
I've seen many miracles, but I'll just name two -- one a healing and the other a spiritual change of heart:
My church claims to have the priesthood, so a member once asked me to heal her gangrenous foot that the doctors were ready to amputate. Diabetes had caused the sore to fester for a year before developing the gangrene. I gave her the healing blessing and in two weeks the sore healed and the gangrene went away.
In my opinion a change of heart is more of a miracle than a healing, because that's like convincing somebody that their political or religious views are wrong. I visited a member who complained about the woman who took her father away from her and her mother. This had happened years before. She stated emphatically that she was "never, ever, without question, ever going to forgive that woman." I prayed in my heart for what to say to her. Immediately the answer came. I said, "The Lord invited us to forgive EVERYONE." Then I hurriedly said, "You don't have to love someone in order to forgive them. President Ronald Reagan forgave the man who shot him. He said he knew that the degree to which he forgave John Hinckley was directly proportional to the degree he would be healed from the bullet wound. John Hinckley still had to pay for his crime, just like your father's mistress will have to pay for hers, whether in this life or the next."
In seven days when I visited her again, she reported with a peaceful smile that she had forgiven the woman while talking to her on the phone.
Demas, that depends on your definition of a miracle. I have experienced numerous things that some people would call miracles. One was having a ladder fall 20 feet with me at the top, and landing on my back on a concrete floor. Scared out of my wits on the way down, I rolled into a little ball and got up laughing. I still believe my guardian angels cushioned the blow for me.
Another was when I was in a city bus rollover. The bus was in the ditch, it was raining, and I was lying paralyzed. Out of frustration called out, "God please help me! I felt the tiniest brush of fingers on my face. I was wearing a jacket at the time, but I felt the soft brush of fingers on my arms. At the same time, a voice in my head said, "We will not leave you." Although I was left with a permanent back injury, my paralysis went away after about 12 hours. My guardian angels were again on duty.
One should always say "please" and "thank you" to God and the angels.
I could name more, but these are my top two.
I can tell you this, when a person is injured in a manner that beyond human comprehension are still with us. I know people who have been shot in the head or shot 12 times and they are still here. To me that is a miracle. When a whole building is engulfed in flames and no one is injured, that is a miracle. When a drug user becomes a productive member of society, that is a miracle. But we don't see these as miracles we see this as luck or determination, not to me. We want the world to move the earth to shake before we claim anything as a miracle, not necessary just open your eyes and they are around you. When you give a person who has no food, money or food they consider that a miracle. So it's all about what you perceive is a considered a miracle!
For me, physical life is a miracle by itself. Imagine, all organs of our body working together perfectly in synchronicity. Life happens automatically, every minute, every second, 24/7, whether we like it or not! Then, against that backdrop, we make our own miracles- do we choose to live a joyful or a joyless life? What could be a greater miracle than that. . . freedom to be as we choose to be? Thus, I am just so thankful for every breathe I take.
Of course, there are occasional huge miracles (the usual connotation of miracle) like being saved from harm, healing from terminal illness or even escaping death; winning the lottery; experiencing the unusual or the unexpected; and many more. And I must be extra ecstatic and thankful for them, if and when they occur, of course. Who wouldn't be? But when I'm already experiencing ordinary miracles at the core, I truly believe, those so-called extraordinary external miracles are mere icings on the cake; huge cracks of opportunities which can either draw me in closer towards or farther away from the essential miracle.
Thank you for your question. And may we all enjoy a truly miraculous life . . heaven on earth experiences, indeed!
I have experienced a miracle with my son
When I was still pregnant the ultrasound showed that my son has severed hydrocephalus we were all heart broken I was in deep pain I'm not a very religious person I don't go to church I don't even pray but in that moment I kneeled and prayed with all my heart. I go to church every Sunday I went to confession I pray the rosary everyday I became religious and then July 26,2016 I had a Ceasarian and all that time I was praying to God to bless my son and make him in his own image and likeness the operation went well and all the doctors were shock they didn't expect that my son was looking normal he was breathing on his own he even peed at the nurse I am grateful everyday because of him I feel blessed everyday I'm happy everyday because I know God is real and he listens if we could just pray with all
our heart I witnessed a miracle and that is the greatest thing ever happened in my life (I have 2 proofs of the ultrasound result showing he has severe hydrocephalus) Thank you
When you can't explain why it happened. It is out of human's explanation or grasp.
It would have to be an event that happened suddenly with a positive outcome that had no manmade interference and defied logical explanation. Something that the only valid explanation is that it is a miracle.
It is impossible to explain the feeling of being hugged by an Angel. It is too hard for our ignorant minds to comprehend, yet any help from an Angel is truly a miracle. If you believe - then you will know.
Similar to many others, I can agree that there is no minimum requirement upon which to judge what is and is not a miracle. I believe it is a miracle that I am alive today. I believe it is a miracle that I have a healthy body. I believe it is a miracle that I am able to serve others and that they are able to feel comforted with me. I believe this Earth's creation is a miracle and that every instance large or small is a miracle whether or not one chooses to see it.

The Scottish philosopher David Hume turned religion on its head with this reasoned and well-expressed thought on the miraculous:"That no testimony is sufficient to establish a miracle, unless the testimony be of such a kind, that its falsehood would be more miraculous, than the fact, which it...
