How To Keep Believing In Miracles

When hearts are fragile, that’s when they may be most faith-filled — believing in miracles before life makes sense. Ann Voskamp

(Hello out there! It has been a long time since you’ve heard anything out of me. We are coming out of a deep freeze where I live and I sort of feel the same way about my writing. I’ve been chipping away at this particular post for a while now. I hope it will encourage any of you who may be looking for a miracle today.)

Believe - Finding The InspiringWe want to believe in miracles. Especially at Christmastime and, really, at all times.

But sometimes life makes it hard. People make it hard.

Like frozen ice hard.

And as a winter storm turns liquid to solid, pain can turn a heart cold.

Suddenly, pulsing flesh can feel like a cocoon of crystalized tears.

And, yes, we could let the hurts of this hurting world overcome us. Let all that bends us break us.

But this is not who we are.

“We are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved. Hebrews 10:39

We are believers.

We may be fragile, but we are faith-filled.

Even when that faith seems more like a toothpick than an ice pick, and we wonder if we will ever be able to touch the tender petals of hope again.

We keep believing because Jesus gives us reason to believe.

His star, still guiding us through the darkest winters of our souls, birthing faith in us before life makes sense.

Faith. This gift from God. Evidence of things not seen.

This is the miracle that melts away all doubt.

There will be a springtime. There will come a thaw. And, as we wait, we sing.

Our praises wrapped in warm breath, like angels wings, rising to heaven in frost-covered air.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5

Oh, Light of the World, shine on us today. Whatever the situation, help us to draw near to you. Let us rest in your presence. The place where all miracles begin.

  1. Hi Angel! How nice to see you writing again! I have missed you.

    I thought of that phrase “earth stood hard as iron” yesterday. It was 0 degrees when I woke up. Yikes. I completely understand the cold making anyone dive under a blanket and drink some hot chocolate.

    I love this post because it’s so encouraging. Everyone needs a good word, some support, and you do that for me today. (Loved that toothpick vs. ice pick image!) I need to hang in there, before I know what the heck God is up to…and believe that it’s all for my good. That faith really is a miracle, because it does wonders in my life.
    Thank you!
