Do you believe in miracles? Well I do… I’ve not only discovered that good things do happen to good people, but that amazing things happen to those who believe in a higher power. Things that may be considered as only as wishful thinking are definitely achievable as long as you have faith.
“You attract the right things when you have sense of who you are.”
God tells us exactly who we are as we get to know Him and accept Him as our savior. He also instructs us how to live in many ways such as; not living by anyones approval, by not letting your past define you, how your worth is in Christ and not your education or job, how to be led by the holy spirit and not by our emotions, and He confirms us that we will reap what we sow. (See Galatians)
Every miracle in the bible seems like it first started as a problem. I don’t know about you, but I like that because it always gives me possitive hope for every rough situation I have and will encounter. As we get older it almost feels like we worry and stress more about big and small things which sometimes aren’t even things we should let our energy be wasted on by the simple fact that we don’t always have full control over things. But you know what? Just like most people in the Bible were renewed after their own struggle so will we.
“making known to us the mystery of His will, according to His purpose, which He set forth in Christas as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in Him, things in heaven and things on earth.” ~Ephesians 1:9-10
This verse reminds me of the quote “we live life forward but we understand it backwards” because life really is a mystery. We never really understand why the things that happen to us happen the way they do, but because of God’s will we come to conclusion that it was always for His divine plan. Look at it this way, somehow our lives look like a huge puzzle being put together by Him. And each time we take a wrong turn and do things our own way is like trying to fit the wrong peace in the wrong spot. We will never be perfect nor will be ever not sin, but we do have the choice to live with joy no matter what.
It’s very common that most of us want to hang on to the past and live feeling sorry for our selves. But thats not the reason we should cling to it. I believe that we should embrace our past failures by showing people how God has changed us for the best and to not only give people hope but to most importantly lead people to a better life with Christ. If we only get one chance at life then doesn’t it make sense to live better? I honestly didn’t always see it this way myself though. For example: I was guilty of blaming all men and women for being cheaters because of my failed marriage. But it doesn’t even make sense because I thought I was the only person in this world who wold never cheat yet I still longed for a relationship. I cllinged to my past for the wrong reason and I had no hope for being in a healthy relationship.
Change is never easy but neither is living a life full of regrets and negative mindsets. I’m definitely not where I would like to be yet but I’m so grateful that I am not where I used to be, and it’s all because of God’s grace. Miracles do happen, just be still and know that God has a plan for each one of us for His kingdom. Trust God and do good…
