A Sense of the Miraculous

sunrays blog picAlbert Einstein said that there are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

I choose faith. It is the path of joy and wonder.

To choose to view the world as if nothing is a miracle, to me is to approach life with a pillow case over my head, asleep to the wake-up world God created full of sense stimulating beauty!

Since we live on a huge rock, suspended in the midst of nothingness.
Since we float, swirling through the galaxy.
Since the world is filled with complex life from a tiny micro-organism, to a seashell, to a massive whale…to a tree, vegetation we can eat, fruit sweet to the taste, birds which fly through the air, fish that swim…

Since we have these beautiful complex human bodies with all their delicate systems….
Since I have the deepness which can only be called spirit within me…
Since the Holy Spirit has proven his love over and over and over again to me…

Since I have seen answers to specific prayers answered, sometimes immediately and dramatically…

I see the world differently.
I choose to look at a puppy and marvel at its playfulness.
I choose to look at the seasons and marvel at God’s faithfulness.
I choose to look at the ordered world of plant and animal life and see too, that God can order our lives, if we choose to live according to his law of love…

I choose to see the world as a miracle…
I see life as a fearfully and wonderfully and lovingly created workmanship of a magnificent and personally present God.

I see a creator God who didn’t stop creating after he made the world. I see him active in the world, daily ordering and making beauty from chaos, something from my nothing, hard at work causing all things to work together for the good of all who love Him.

And the miracles continue all around us, every day, every night…all the time…God, wake me up, to the miraculous. God, help me rediscover the wonder of it all.
