Miracle Monday

It is once again time for Miracle Monday hosted by our wonderful friend Beth at this sight. . I know, I need to figure out Mr. Linky, but this is the best I can do in the moment.

God continues to impress upon my heart that each day is full us His glorious wonder. Miracles are around us. Today my heart was heavy with a situationt that had really started last fall. God has moved our family into a greater place of knowing Him and getting that there will be storms to pass through. We passed through a big one last fall. As our hearts have been working on forgiveness and healing in this matter I am continually blessed with little things that remind me that God is watching over my hearts concerning this matter.

An incident came up this past week that brought back some of the emotion of last fall. I know it's not of God, and thus the confusion over our hearts. My husband and I have prayed over this and I have such a sense of knowing He is really caring for my heart. This morning I woke up thinking over things. It's not something I can just pick up the phone and yack away with a friend over. Yet, being the kind of woman who likes to process outward I am feeling a little locked up inside my head. So I just prayed this morning that God would prevent my flesh from speaking ill will about anyone circling this situaiton and that my life would simply continue to walk in His spirit. The wieghts of my heart have lifted and I realized that I would not give the enemy any more room in my brain.

Then the phone rings and it's a women who years earlier walked through a simular storm. I have maybe once spoke with her on the phone, maybe not even once. But she called for a completely unrelated matter, but our hearts connected and the love, care, and encouragement she shared was what I needed. I needed it today, not last fall, not yesterday, but today. I think this is how God works his miracles. He knows the timing of when our hearts are ready to accept His divine interventions. He knows the miracle for the moment and if our hearts are open to receieve He does give and bless us.

I believe this to be one of His many miracles, and this is just something blessed me so much today. How can this not be a miracle. Someone calls me out of the blue just at the moment I am praying over the need to process outward. Thanks God!!!


  1. Elizabeth,
    This is a wonderful example of God's loving, tender care! And, I belive it IS a MIRACLE! I especially love how you pointed out that she called at the EXACT right time- "not last fall, not yesterday, but today."

    Thanks for stopping by my place. It was a pleasure meeting you.

  7. God is so incredibly good. I love your story and how you added it all up to the loving care of our Father in heaven. I totally understand the feeling like one should not speak openly about a problem, but sometimes it is bursting at the seams to be shared for getting strength to endure it. It is difficult. I am so happy you had a friend that called at just the right time too!

  8. How beautiful. There are so many "little" miracles in everyday life.

  9. The small miracles all week long are what keep me going. Thanks for sharing.
