Wednesday's Miracle

I have decided to try something out that is a bit different. I want to search the news and find an AWESOME and OBVIOUS miracle. So many times we forget how intricately involved GOD really is in our everyday lives. His miracles are often as straightforward as waking us up every morning. However, when you view his miracles from a standpoint of expectancy you can’t fully appreciate them. Every day he allows us to witness his miraculous POWER in a unique and amazing way. Sometimes I believe he shows off to remind us that he is ALIVE and is very much in control of this world. Amidst the chaos he is still concerned with you and me. We sin every day. The wages of sin is death. Praise GOD that he is MERCY!! We don’t receive what we have earned. PRAISE GOD!!!

I am thankful that he is soo AWESOME, MERCIFUL, and GREAT!!! I am thankful that even amidst all the suffering he is still merciful enough to allow us a glimpse of his loving direct kindness. Every Wednesday I will post a story that I pray will help remind us of that.
