Why We Can Believe In Miracles

This one is adapted from the archives with a Christmas video added at the end of the post that I think you’ll enjoy…

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

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

But sometimes life makes 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 crystallized 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.

The wise men had it. So did Mary and Joseph. And so do we.

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.

One of my favorite Christmas songs is Breath of Heaven by Amy Grant. This year, the chorus has taken on new meaning and has become my prayer. Maybe it’s yours too?

Breath of heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of heaven

Breath of heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For you are holy

Breath of Heaven…

Be blessed –
