Miracles. Are all miracles big and bold or can they be small? What do you think about that? I believe God is at work all around us. Every day in so many ways He is pouring out His favor and blessings. Have you noticed the countless blessings that are right in front of you?
God’s Miracles is an original song I co-wrote with my friend and excellent drummer, Brian Kell. It was inspired by the many miracles that God does in our lives every day.
My favorite little miracle is a parking place. I know that sounds a little silly, maybe unimportant, but to me it’s special. One of the reasons that I think there is a parking spot for me is that I always ‘look’. It drives my husband crazy. He usually just pulls into the first place available, but because I believe that there IS a spot waiting for me, I go and look, and …98-99% of the time, THERE IS! It is so cool. I smile and say ‘Thank you Lord’. I don’t know why He does it, I’m just thankful.
How many times we may miss a beautiful miracle, big ones and small ones because we aren’t looking, or we aren’t paying attention. I think God gives blessings and miracles every day, and they are different for each of us. Maybe you needed groceries, or a way to pay your electric bill, and somehow the money appeared. That is God. Maybe a friend called you ‘out of the blue’ and it cheered you up. It isn’t an accident or coincidence.
Watch this week. Be open and available. Ask God to show where He is at work. He is there, I promise. He never leaves or forsakes us.
We don’t have to be perfect, hallelujah for that because I am so Not. He is God, and we are not. His love is unconditional, forever, and never wavers. Claim it and appreciate it. I believe the more thankful we are the more avenues of blessings open up for us. The flowers, the trees, the rain, the sunshine, the parking spaces, the checks in the mail, the newborn baby, there is no end to the list.
Watch for God this week and let Him surprise you.
Many blessings and I would love to hear from you.

Lyrics by Delinda Layne
God’s Miracles, happen everyday
God’s Miracles, ordinary some say,
God’s Miracles, come in big and small ways,
Take a look and you will see,
God’s Miracles for you and me
