miracle
/ˈmɪrək(ə)l/
Noun
an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency.

For the best part of this year, I have lived my life like everyone experienced miracles except me. I have prayed for the biggest miracle and asked God for a clear purpose, but it seemed like I had not yet gotten my miracle. Most times, I felt alone, angry and sad that my prayers were not being answered. My eyes were closed to everything around me and was focused on the big miracle I was hoping for. I looked forward to the day my prayers will be answered and ignored everything happening around me

Albert Einstein once said, there are only two ways to live your life. One as though nothing is a miracle and the second as though everything is a miracle. I was not living my life like everything is a miracle. I missed out a lot. I was so focused on the big miracle that everything else still felt like I was losing. Even though the ‘big miracle’ I am hoping has not happened, I know that everything that’s happening around me is a miracle. Miracles are everywhere. Miracles are people that you meet. Miracles show up in the strangest places and in the strangest ways. Miracles show up in family, friends and strangers. Miracles are goodness sometimes showing in the strangest of ways through people who are just passing through our lives, to friends who are there no matter what. Miracles show up in love. Miracles show up in conversations.

I remember when I was going through the worst period earlier this year, looking for answers everywhere and was not able to speak to anyone. My line manager asked us to start a buddy system where we talk about everything except work. This helped me look forward to each day and know that things will get better.

When I was looking for direction, and I found The Elevation Church. It felt like home, it brought peace and a sense of happiness.

How my family always pull me out when the chips are down. How they look beyond my present and see me better than I see myself.

Miracles in the conversations that give me joy and hope to take on the next day. Miracle in the people that allow you confide in them. Miracles in the people that push you beyond what you can imagine. I was blind to these miracles, but these miracles and more are why I am still standing. 

These miracles keep us ahead till we get to the big one. Miracles are God ways of telling us we are not alone. I now see how God constantly used this miracle to tell me that I am not alone. He is there with me, that He sees my struggles and He is with me all the way. Whatever it is you are going through, look for all the miracles in your life, all the people God has used across your path and in that you will know that He is here, He is right there with you.

The aim is to live every day like it is a miracle. Some days might be better than the other that does not mean it is not a miracle, because it is.

As we all wait for those big moments to happen (and God always come through), let’s live in the moment and enjoy the other miracles God is doing in our lives

Peace and Love
