I find inspiration for this blog in the strangest places. The other night, my husband had on a movie (I can't remember the title). In it, the main character says, "If you want to SEE a miracle, BE a miracle."
What a great quote. I frequently ask the Lord for miracles. I ask Him to soften my hard heart. I ask Him to bless friends and family members who are struggling with health, financial, family, etc. problems. I ask Him for all sorts of things.
Perhaps He is waiting for me to do something. I can't heal anyone, but I can pray for him. I can send a card or deliver a plate of donuts (that I have bought, not made). I can't erase the financial problems of a friend, but I can listen while she worries aloud over them. I can't make a recalcitrant grown child return to the Gospel, but I can hold my friend while she cries about that same child.
No, I'm certainly not saying that I can be a miracle. But maybe, just maybe, I can ease someone else's pain, if only for a moment.
This I know for sure: though I can't be a miracle, I can be a friend.
