A Life Filled With Miracles – If Only You Believe

A Course in Miracles by Foundation for Inner Peace

A miracle is a supernatural event that only a divine source can produce for anyone, directly or through a person, circumstances, and events. We can’t produce our own miracles, but we can certainly call them “miracles” if something totally unusual occurs in our lives.

Saintly people are known to perform miracles while they live their lives, and even after they have passed away. Two perfect and recent examples are Sister Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Pope John Paul II. Many people are familiar with these illustrious persons.

Do many people believe in miracles? Perhaps many do, but my opinion is that people who practice religion, or are simply spiritual, will most likely come across the merits of believing in miracles. I read once in my life this saying, “If you don’t believe in God, then, how do you expect a miracle in your life?”

I suppose that if you’re an Atheist or an Agnostic, it would be acim difficult to convince you that miracles do happen to people. I have two very good friends: one just doesn’t believe in God, and the other doubts that God even exists, but leaves that option open (whatever that means).

How do you know if a miracle has occurred in your life? And are you presently seeking a miracle for a specific reason?

I will give the best possible answers to those questions, and hopefully you will see an avenue here through a different perspective. I have experienced miracles in my life, and in that of others, and I came to the same conclusion every time: I believe they were miracles!

These are the things that you may want to know beforehand about miracles:

– A miracle can occur in less than a wink, and your life may be spared to see another day. There’s no time limit to a miracle, anymore than there’s a time limit to the Universe.

– Be very specific as to what exactly it is that you need in your life to occur or in someone else: perhaps a loved one or a close friend. For instance, are you requesting for a miracle of healing, curing, salvation, recovery from an addiction, or for another purpose?

– A request for a miracle to change someone very close to you from bad to good, whilst that person is happy and content being bad, and even hostile toward you and others, is a tough road to take; and that comes from experience with four nephews who got involved in drugs, and their destiny was doomed.

– We are all eligible and deserving of receiving a miracle which can certainly save our lives from a physical attack by a human, and even an animal; or perhaps to recover from various critical conditions such as: a bad accident, terminal cancer, heart attack, a stroke, overdose of drugs, or other drastic and catastrophic events.

– Pray for a miracle with total conviction and truthfulness–if a miracle is exactly what you need to turn things around. This request is totally between you and God, for it is His way to stay in touch with us.

– Believe that a miracle can actually happen for you and your loved ones. If you do believe, then don’t hesitate to ask!

– Be patient and pray through the process of experiencing a miracle. Miracles don’t run on a timer, and they do happen when you least expect them.

– Be ready for a miracle to occur without you invoking it, or having petitioned for it previously. Give you an example: In 2008 my life and that of four other people was spared from certain death when I avoided a high-speed car collision in the rain late at night, and with very poor visibility. The “life-saving miracle” occurred in less than a second’s time.
