Do you believe in miracles?
Merriam-Webster defines miracle as
1 : an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs
2 : an extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment
I believe that God is constantly at work in this physical world--the key to seeing miracles happen is keeping an open mind and a receptive heart.
Book Look Bloggers recently sent me a copy of It's a God Thing: When Miracles Happen to Everyday People. The book is a collection of stories from forty-six real people, written in their own words, of when they experienced something that they just knew had to be a God thing. The stories run the gamut from ordinary to profound, but the one thing they have in common is they can't be easily explained.
I really enjoyed reading this book. In fact, I gobbled it up, reading the entire 210 pages in less than 36 hours. I laughed, I cried--some of the stories gave me chills--and I was reminded that miracles do happen and have happened in my life.
Now, I will say that skeptics reading this book will probably not be convinced. All of these stories can be and probably have been explained away by some as coincidence or good luck. This book is definitely written to believers and open-minded seekers--those who want to believe. This book will give them hope, which is a precious thing.
