The last two weeks have gone by quickly. We spent a good portion of our time in hospitals (yes, plural) and in doctor offices. As life often goes, we had to contend with some issues that needed to be worked out for both mom and baby. And. The pace was relentless at times. Of course, we were tired from trying to adjust to the newborn schedule as well as the hospital morning and night routine. So. It required intention to stop and experience the joy of the miracle of life each day.
Yet. Miracles are to be experienced and remembered. Miracles give us hope in this world and lead us to new life. True miracles come from the heart of God.
I wonder how many miracles are missed because we become so consumed with the dailyness of life. If, only . . . we took more time to see what God is up to . . . we would have more joy, peace, and gratefulness:
We are told to look for the miracle of God’s work:
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19
In every time and space of life, God is doing a new thing, making a way through the details of living, enabling us to experience the gift of the day. Even, so, it’s a choice to receive and experience the gift of the day.
Be intentional today.
Refocus. See the miracle of God’s work. Experience and remember the miracle of receiving a day to live. Respond to the miracle of today with joy, peace, and gratefulness.
Learning to Kickstart the day by seeing the miracle of today,
