Grandfather made sure I grew up believing that we are led through life by an unseen guide, making turns and decisions based in a common goal. Everything has a reason and nothing is by mistake. There really is a plan for each and everyone of us.
I can’t really tell you when this finally hit home and I realized that everyone I met in life and everyone I touched in life blessed me and them in one form or another. It was then when I learned that we are put on this earth for a very particular reason and everything we do is designed to complete the plan for our or someone else’s life.
God has planned every step of our life and, for me, when I realized this I stopped questioning His reasoning and started following the path He set forth for me. That little decision to follow His lead has turned into continuous blessings for my life. I wake up every morning eager to see what He has laid out for me this day and I am never disappointed.
I encourage everyone to open their eyes to His plan and learn to follow it without question. The enlightenment you receive will amaze you. Stop complaining about the rough times you are delt and make the best of every incident in your day. The resulting blessings will more than make up for a rough ride.
By now you are asking what this has to do with everyday miracles. We wake up to blue skies with birds, flowers and trees everyday, yet we don’t really notice them. We have stars and a moon at night, but we just take them for granted. These are there, not because of something man did but because of the grace of God.
We witness the miracle of birth, the blooming of a flower, and even the magic effect of a simple smile, yet we don’t think we see miracles daily. Most people don’t realize the power of their smile, or the simple strength of a soft touch. We all are part of a miracle without even realizing it.
That smile you shared with a stranger while walking into the grocery may have turned around his or her day. That simple thank you you shared with the checkout girl may have lifted her spirit. It is the little things we do everyday that ages someone’s world for them. You are someone’s miracle today and you just may be the recipient of someone’s gift tomorrow.
So the next time you feel you are going in different direction than you thought, take a few minutes to ask God what lesson He is sending to you. Step into that lesson and share the blessing He gives you with someone. It just may turn out to be the miracle they needed to continue on.
Walk daily with God at your side!
