Sometimes, it feels as though we are waiting forever for that “miracle” to happen. And, often while we are so busy hoping and praying for that one thing, we may miss many other smaller, every day blessings that have come to grace our lives, or those of our loved ones. My feeling has always been to jump into life with all of one’s heart, mind and strength so that we can see and feel the every day gifts that are scattered within our days. God knows what we need in every area of our lives, and He may just bring about a miracle in a completely different way than we were expecting. In that waiting period, I know with all of my heart, God is giving us the precious opportunity to grow in faith.
