“Our planet is speeding through space at an average velocity of 67,108 miles per hour. That’s not just faster than a speeding bullet. It’s 87 times faster than the speed of sound. If that isn’t miraculous, I don’t know what is. Yet when was the last time you thanked God for keeping our planet in orbit? I’m guessing never! My point? There are microscopic and macroscopic miracles all around us all the time, but if you aren’t looking for them you won’t see them. Every breath of air. Every second of time. Every thought that fires across your synapses. Every sunset and moonrise. Each of them is miraculous in their own way.” Mark Batterson
This past year was, well, different. It was the first year in many that I wasn’t working in full-time ministry. It has been a year of waiting – waiting on God to show us what He has in store for us and where our next place of ministry might be. If I have learned anything in the waiting, I have learned to slow down a little and not miss the miracles.
Sometimes we get so busy that we get bogged down with ordinary, the mundane, the projects, and the results. We wonder where God is in the midst of the craziness or the loneliness and we miss the every day miracles.
As you are preparing for a new year, make sure to not miss the miracles that are going on around you. Watch for God’s hand and pay attention to what He is doing for you, in you, and with you. Don’t miss out on all the wonderful provisions He has provided and ask Him to increase your capacity this year. Don’t miss the miracles and ask God to make the impossible possible this year!
