It's a Miracle!...that happens daily

When was that last time you witnessed a miracle?  I know that some of you are wondering if you ever witnessed a miracle. I believe that you have not only witnessed one but participated in at least one modern miracle.  However, you may not have recognized the miracle because it happens so often that you have become blinded to the actuality of the miracle. 

By now you may realize that I am not necessarily talking about the Biblical Jesus Christ type miracles like raising the dead, giving sight to the blind, or feeding the five thousand. We don't see many of the Jesus level miracles today, although, I believe they are on the way here soon. We will not only be witnesses, we will perform them. 

The miracles that I have my focus on today are those modern day miracles performed with the aid and use of technology. Today, I jumped on and off a flying metal bird weighing over 100,000 pounds and moving at a speeds of over 500 miles and hour. (These things actually fold time.) Hundreds of these birds, called airplanes, take off and land everyday without incident. Now, that's a Miracle. [Not to mention that our luggage usually gets to our destination along with us.]

If this is not enough for you to recognize daily miracles consider this. Many of us get in and out of our personal transporters, called cars; we weld these weapons of mass destruction weighing thousands pounds up and down our streets and highways; we sling ourselves around at the speed of 70-80 miles per hour, while at the same time texting friends, calling business partners and updating  Facebook and Twitters statuses simultaneously.  Yet, we do all this many time without so much as a scratch on our precious transporters or injury to ourselves, loved ones and neighbors.

Miracles! I tell you miracles are the norm for our times. That's why were all in awe when a plane crashes or there's a fatal car accident because then we are reminded of just how risky our common place activities are. In these tragic moments ever so briefly we pause for the cause and contemplate the miracle of our survival that we witness on the daily. Give Thanks! 

The Most High has keep us, again; He has covered us and keep us from the hurt, harm and danger that we expose ourselves to daily. It's a miracle that we are here....

"Almighty God, thank you for the miracle of flight, travel and safe passage today. May we use our collective miracle working power to do Your will in our world: to set free those in bondage, to feed the hungry, heal the sick and manifest your Love by ending the cradle to prison pipelines, ending self inflected genocide by means of gun violence and beginning the new age of miracles for the good of all humanity."  Amen, so let it be.
