Living Into the Miracle 


What a glorious season we are in. I love the Easter season with all the triumphs of the miracles done and resurrection love. It lifts our spirits and makes all things seem possible. On top of that, comes all the spring rituals of graduation – celebrating landmarks that highlight growth and newfound understandings that lead to new challenges and opportunities. It’s all very exciting, thrilling, and daunting at the same time. All the more reason to lean into the Easter experience that illustrates our eternal connection to God and encourages us to embrace the daily miracle that God is always with us offering guidance, comfort, inspiration, and healing!


Jesus tells us over and over about God’s constant presence in our lives and how God is always in us and among us.
John 14:11-13 is one of my favorite Bible passages and speaks to this. “Believe me when I say that I am in God and God is in me; or at lest believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth that anyone who has Faith in me will do what I have been doing.  He will do even greater things than  these, because I am going to God.”
 
That we will do even greater things than these is hard to believe, but we are called together as a church to be a miracle in the world as Jesus was. We can make a difference. When we have faith in God and ourselves and each other we can do miraculous things. 
So let’s seize this Easter enthusiasm! While the soul sings with solutions, while the heart beats strong and clear, let’s set the course for Cosmic Transformation!  Before the mind clouds with doubt and details, decide now to dedicate our energy to earthly patterns of glory and abundance, of hope and optimism, and of courage and determination. So that we might know a world of peace and cooperation, love and healing, forgiveness and grace. Because if we cannot see it, know it, and believe it is possible, we cannot achieve it. Let’s live in a world where we know miracles happen! Because we do! Miracles are all around us! Some are big, some are small. Some are enormous accomplishments, some are everyday coincidences that we hardly even notice.
When we pray we are showing faith in God. We are opening ourselves up to the possibility of Divine intervention. Miracles happen! How wonderful! Now let’s try to pray without ceasing – to constantly be intending a life full of miracles! To be searching for Divine guidance. To be listening for that still, small voice that echoes eternally in our souls. When we open ourselves to the possibility that God is co-creating with us in every moment, that’s when we become an instrument for God – and then we become the miracle that Jesus said we can be.
