In Others’ Words: Miracles
“Maybe miracles are given not to prove anything, but simply to remind us that the physical world is not so solid and real and dependable as we think.”
~Dwight Longenecker, Catholic priest & author
I believe in miracles.
Yes, I do.
Last night, my husband and I celebrated a miracle with our daughter, Katie Beth, and our son-in-love, Nate. (No, they are not expecting. They’re newlyweds!) But a door that seemed firmly shut–slammed in their faces really–is now wide open for them.
Truth be told, this is the second “wow” moment they’ve had in less than two days. Two times when impossible situations were prayed over and changed.
And, yes, I know that sometimes doors stay closed. Sometimes God says no. Not “not now”–a straight up No.
But does that mean we shouldn’t embrace the times God says yes? Does that mean we don’t look for the truth of miracles?
Oh, what we would miss … the beauty. The wonder.
