Psalm 91:14-16 New International Version (NIV)
14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Psalm 37:4 New International Version (NIV)
4 Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

You might say but I've been waiting for a miracle for a very long time. Some people just up and find it's too hard to believe in miracles. Maybe you saw someone else get the miracle you have been waiting for in life. I felt that way when we lost our house years ago and I saw others getting moving into a new home. My mind began to wonder, why not me? One of my desires is to have a beautiful house and yard where my kids could play. They grew up and now I want the same things for my grandkids. Yet, I must be honest and say that we didn't plan our money that way. Our lives are accountable for the way we use our money and how we plan. It's not just a prayer and boom it happens. It's a prayer with action and we wise with your future.
I remember my husband telling a story about our son Chad. He was given only a few days to live at 2 years old. The doctor said he had a rapid illness that would close off his wind pipes. Every where he had a joint in his body, it began to swell. The doctor promised to keep him comfortable until he died. We began to call people to pray. On the third day, something changed and Chad's swelling was disappearing. I took him back into the doctor and he said this, "I don't believe in God, but this is a miracle". He told me that day that he believed in God now. Seeing Chad changed his mind and Chad is now in his 30's today.
I don't know why God heals some people and other's go to Heaven. I know that God has a plan of timing and asking his will for our lives is so important. I know other's who has seen things in life and turned from God. God just didn't answer them the way they wanted or what seemed to be right to the human eye. I can understand that so much. My brother developed cancer and died on Christmas Day year ago at 37. I was 32 and I got angry at God and the people who called themselves Christians. Lack of compassion and words that hurt my heart forever. My brother Ronnie got a miracle of health but not on earth. He knew it was his timing and he told me to live each day as if it were my last. I grew from this experience and felt God drawing me back to him almost a year later.
Today, I stand stronger than ever in God. I have seen miracles, I have been broken in my heart and I rest in knowing that all things work out. I do believe in miracles! Anger takes us away from God's plan and a happy life. I didn't realize it then, but I do now in my older years. God does work things out for us, but now always like we think.
Romans 8:28 New International Version (NIV)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

I am waiting to see some miracles I am praying for today. I must continue to believe and hold on for God's timing in these. God is in control and I know it's the only way. I am praying for the readers of my blog, your family and friends. I know that somethings are hard to watch and other things seem to come so natural. Don't give up believing and know that God is truly on your side. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. ~ Romans 10:17
Purpose this a great day and hold on for greater things are in today!
