is the miraculous really done in today's modern world? if you believe, as i do, then are you seeing the miraculous? does all of this "power of Christ, in the world but not of the world" have any substance? or do we just need to concentrate on doing good for fellow humans for the sake of ... for both our sakes?
i've got to be honest, i don't get to see the blind seeing and the lame walking because they believed it could happen and then it did. does that mean that God isn't working though?
is God silent? the Bible does talk about some times when God has been silent, but is this one of those times? one of those eras?
i don't see those things ... but i do see God. i see him in the reaction of someone that i'm trying to help find work. i see him in my wife's face when i tell her i love her and thank her for all the things she does to help me along my journey (i should do that more though). i see it in the smile of someone on the bus as they return my own smile right back at me.
none of that stuff is miraculous and yet they all are.
God is not silent. God can be found. take heart. He hears you. He knows you. there's more for you.
i'm still praying for the miraculous to happen though. i can be pretty obtuse and need to be hit over the head with the obvious.
break in to me Lord. show your signs and i'll try to stay perennially in wonder.
