“It defies the world’s logic,” he said. “It’s something only God could reconcile.”
I nodded in agreement, thoughts swirling through my mind, however I couldn’t format any words into a coherent sentence.
So all that came out of my rounded mouth was “Wow.” I twirled my tea cup, peppermint aroma gracing my senses. The sun from the cafe window warmed my hands, and imprinted tiny white stars in the blue eyes of my companion.
Sometimes there are just no words to describe what seemed impossible becoming possible. Sometimes, as in this case with my friend, there are just no words to describe a reaction from a story shared of a relationship that seemed irreconcilable becoming reconciled. Or that miraculous open door to a new beginning.
Sometimes there are just no words to describe God’s miracles.
There was a time God seemed very silent in my life and I began to pray for a miracle. Just a little something to show me you are working here among us, I would plea. Shortly after I heard a speaker on a radio program describe how she saw miracles everyday.
What? Every day?
I tuned in deeper.
Yes, every day, the speaker claimed. Sometimes it’s the miracle of that flower blooming, or that man holding the door open for a mom with a stroller, she elaborated.
Aw. It’s in the everyday, these miracles.
So to my daily journaling of gratitude and successes, I added to my end of the day questions, “What miracles did you see today?”
And the list began, words to describe God’s miracles.
The flame of my candle. The call from that friend I was just thinking about. The green bud on that branch I thought was dead. The car starting even though the interior light was on all night. Lost keys found. The inconvenience of having to go to another place to retrieve the item I need and find it a few dollars less at the other grocery store. Making that wrong turn, and while turning around in a parking lot I run into an old friend that needed some encouragement. That perfect scripture verse of encouragement showing up on my Facebook page. Meeting that family from Jacksonville who gave me information leading me to add Savannah, Georgia (a place I have longed to visit) to my travels in Florida next month…
So many miracles!
Aw. But why would I doubt?
For with God, anything is possible.
When the disciples heard this they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:25:26
My companion’s eyes continued to sparkle as the silent seconds passed between us. His lips curled up in a slow smile. “I know,” he says. “Sometimes God is just too amazing for words.”
What miracles did you see today, my friend?
I can’t leave you today without sharing a captured moment of a Maui sunset. May you take a breath in, imagine the sea air, and know you are also a miracle creation of the perfect One who created all.
