Miracles. Many years ago there were a few of us who entered the ministry within a few months of each other. One of those was our friend, Rev. Helen; she, at that time, had a church in Hawaii. While we were on holiday there we met for lunch one day. As a preface to this let me state, we were/are practitioners of a spiritual healing technique call Spiritual Mind Treatment. In order to enter the ministry one had to have proof of at least three individual documented case histories that had a healing; with doctor confirmation that the condition no longer existed, or other verifiable documentation. Helen, being innovative and one to speak her mind, called miracles “ordinaries,” as they happen all the time in life, both my wife and I were really impressed with her new word and shared it with my congregation upon our return home.
Miracles are “Ordinaries” in which both of us believe as well as Divine Intervention.
Just look at what we say when we find a parking space near a mall entrance at holiday times, “It’s a miracle I found this space.” Think about it…how many times do you say, “It’s a miracle,” more than once in awhile I’ll wager.
Some years ago I saw an older gent collapse, through all this we had direct eye contact, a doctor who saw the event took his vitals and told those who were there to render aid that the older gentleman had passed on; no attempt to revive him. Having worked in a hospital I was familiar with the look of death in the eyes, which he had. Still maintaining eye contact and as many watched the goings on his body suddenly arched and life returned to him and his eyes. It was not his time and that my friends, was an awe inspiring experience for me. Miraculous, yes, it was an Oh My God Moment to the nth degree.
Miracles are not out of the ordinary, in fact throughout the ages we have been told that we are capable of many things and are powerful if we have but the “faith of a grain of mustard seed.” The miracles we seek are at our finger tips, so to speak, the miracle power resides within our hearts and minds. The miracle is but our recognition of the divine power within us to bring forth that which we have believed without question.
Take time to consider your inner power, the power of your spoken word, and ability within you to live the life you choose, to be as successful as you desire, to be; prosperous, wealthy, healthy, and the like. Focus on where you want to go and stop looking at what you don’t want. Give your undivided attention to your forward moving desire/goal and stay the course. I paraphrase Isaiah, “So shall my word go forth to accomplish that for which it was sent and it shall not return unto me void.”
By no means are you ordinary. You are an extraordinary expression of Life Itself, experiencing lots and lots of wonderful “ordinaries.”
In loving recognition and memory of a very dear friend, Rev. Helen.
