The Year of Miracles

mir·a·cle[mir-uh-kuhl]
–noun
1. an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.
2. such an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of God.
3. a wonder; marvel.

I don’t know about you but I need a miracle; more than one, actually.

There are things in my world that keep blinding me with a flashing sign that says, “impossible”.

There are things that keep telling me, “Give up. It doesn’t matter. Things will never change.”

There are things that haven’t changed in all my adult years.

There are things that I’ve come to accept and things I have stopped fighting for. 

There are things that I have lost hope for and there are things that have grated my faith into a pile of dust.

So, this year I need miracles.

I need to find hope and faith again.

I need a work of God that is beyond my human powers and in 2011 that’s what I’m asking for and that’s what I’ll be looking for because in the words of Reepicheep, "All's not as lost as it seems".

Popped over from the Grit.

This came to mind as I read your post: May the God of hope fill you will all joy and peace in believing (as you trust Him), so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope (That He can, does and wants to do miracles on your behalf.) Romans 15:13

Oh I love Miracles! I've seen a few in my life in 2010 and am totally expecting more in 2011. (But that's not my word!)

You'll see your miracles! I just know it! God wants to give them to you! :)
