The Miracle Position

1 Feb

miracles

Miracles do happen. They happen everyday. We live in a world of miracles: planes, spaceships, televisions, cell phones, electricity. All these things at some point were beyond belief. Now they are a part of our daily reality. That’s how miracles work. When a miracle happens it is so thoroughly consuming that it changes a world, indefinitely.

We live in a society that is about as pleasant as a jaded lover. Somewhere along the line we fell out of love with the world. We decided that it just didn’t live up to our expectations and that was its fault and not ours. So, now, we are skeptical. We are bitter. We are faithless. And miracles are made of faith.

It is surprising how many people would say that they do not believe in miracles when all they would need to do is look at the world around them and see it for what it is: a miracle. As people, we are some of the most ungrateful and irreverent creatures on the planet. And what’s worse is we have the audacity to be sarcastic and cynical. We are so out of touch with the truth that we cannot understand and see that there are, at least, as many possibilities in the world as there are limitations.
All it takes is an open face (I have issues with open minds lol). All we have to do is be willing to see and focus on that which is positive and hopeful, despite the opposition.

When we get in the miracle position we begin to see the world from an angle that makes anything possible. The glass becomes half full instead of half empty, love seems possible, hope abounds, and faith endures. What does it cost one to believe? he risk of disappointment? Well that, too, would be a matter of perspective. But we’ve been disappointed before and somehow survived. So why not take the chance? There’s infinitely more to be gained than there is to lose.

    It’s great that you can see the miracles in everyday life. There are indeed miracle moments in every day. You just have to be open enough to see them.
