Miracles Happen Everyday
I used to be blinded by the idea that miracles are rare and spectacular events, like instant healings, defeating the odds after a horrific event or having a vision of heaven or heavenly people.
Only through Lucas’s illness did I realize that miracles are not always large recognizable events. In fact, MIRACLES HAPPEN EVERYDAY, and the majority of the miracles we don’t see, hear or feel because we are distracted.
Just the other day I witnessed one of God’s miracles. Let me share what happened.
I was flying in a Cessna 172 with a student and I told the student to initiate a climb to 4000 feet and maintain a heading of South. It was a bumpy, windy and turbulent day even as we climb to a higher altitude.
As my student leveled off, I was giving him a few instructional pointers on trimming the airplane for level flight after a climb.
Almost instantaneously, our airplane dropped quickly as we hit a pocket of turbulence causing my student to scream “whoa!” and tense up on the controls.
Casually glancing out of the front of the window, I saw three unexpected large objects barely clear our airplane as they flew in the exact opposite direction. (Either large migratory birds or the tires from another airplane that flew right above us)
Had I not looked out the airplane window that very instant I would have never realized this: That violent drop wasn’t really turbulence. It was HEAVEN pushing my plane down just enough to avoid the mid air collision.
The most unexpected happenings in our day, could very well be God’s miraculous workings so open your hearts and see God’s goodness in all things….even that annoying turbulence!
And remember MIRACLES HAPPEN EVERYDAY!
