Miracles happen all around us every day. We are so wrapped in fear and focused on the things that are not happening; the people who are against us; our lack of resources and support; along with all our wrongs; that we fail to pay attention to the miracles.
The road blocks blind us. The fact that I am writing this article is a miracle. God is allowing me to share this message with you. I certainly hope you stop to notice.
Back in August of 2015 my mother had a hemorrhagic stroke which left the left side of her body paralyzed. In the ER we were told by the head nurse with the Doctor standing right next to her that if we didn’t do a surgery she would die within two days. We were absolutely against it and requested that they gave her at least 72 hours before performing any surgery. She spent weeks in the intensive care unit and was later moved to a regular floor.
Five months later, my mother is alive. While she has to re-learn to talk and walk, I’d say this is a miracle of God. Wouldn’t you agree? She is currently in a nursing rehabilitation facility but she is alive and doing well.
I serve a God who is great! What men say really doesn’t matter because GOD has the final word. He can change people and circumstances.
I’m sharing this with you because sometimes there are things in our lives that seem impossible.
We focus on the people that do not care for us, the family members and friends who do not support us; the naysayers and the dream killers. At times we accept what is said by the people of authority can or can’t be done. Often times, these people are trying to intimidate us.
During the crossroads in our lives, we wonder if we are the only person in the world to feel so down. I want you to know that you are not alone. Our humanity connects us. You can rest assured that somewhere out there, someone is going through something similar, if not the exact experience as you. They probably feel the same exact way. We are more alike than we think.
Sometimes what we consider as struggles, trials or adversities are exactly what we need in order to be strengthened.
Maybe you have lost it all and you are starting over; a new business, new relationship or a new city.
Maybe you have been broken, betrayed, left physically abused, emotionally abused, and sexually abused.
Perhaps you are fighting an addiction, gambling, internet, video game, plastic surgery, lying, shopping, drugs, alcohol, sex, food, power over another….
Perhaps suicide has crossed your mind.
Maybe your life is chaotic.
Maybe you have a dark past that’s chipping at your spirit.
I get it. I understand. I have been there!
No matter what you are going through or have been through, YOU matter! Begin with a willingness to believe that you’ve already had and continue to have miracles in your life. You hold the keys to enhancing your personal power, right now –at this very moment.
God loves each of us personally! I know that because my life is an example of it. Over the past 5 months I have learned the power of faith and loving others unconditionally. Faith and love unlock miracles.
Miracles happen every second of the day. No matter who you are, what you been through, what you have done in your past. You are a miracle. I want you to always believe that life is happening for you, not to you or against you. No matter how perfectly prepared and planned your life is set up to be. Life, it happens. Your past has prepared you for this very moment. I believe right now you are positioned to receive miracles. Miracles happen when you believe!
Here are a few steps I would love to share with you. These 7 key lessons have radically affected my life during these 5 months.
- Accept your past.
- Accept what you are feeling without judgement.
- Make a commitment to live in the present.
- Forgive yourself and forgive others.
- Be kind to yourself and to others.
- Put love into action – Practice mindfulness! Love has power. There is no greater power than love! Love has the ability to heal the world.
- Ask yourself daily; what can I do today to bring light of love to another human being?
I love you. You are a miracle!
