miracle

mir-uh-kuhl

-n o u n
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.
4. a wonderful or surpassing example of some quality.
5. my mother’s test results*

*Against all odds, there is no sign of cancer anywhere in her body and she’s only halfway through the prescribed chemo regimen, the one that wasn’t supposed to be as effective this time. I don’t know why God answers some prayers for healing and not others, and I know it’s not a matter of how many people pray or how heartfelt their prayers are or how righteous are those who are praying. But I do know that I am grateful, overwhelmed, and excited to see what can only be a miracle. God is so good. Again. Still. Always.

I have tears in my eyes and goosebumps all over my arms. Praise the Lord for healing and for miracles!

While this is so not about me and I hope it doesn't sound like it is, once again, your post speaks directly to me. Last week in a moment of despair, I asked God to reveal His miracles to me for the next 90 days and I started a journal to keep track of what I believe to be those miracles. (The changing of the seasons, an unexpected financial blessing, etc.)

This evening when I read your post about your Mom, I just couldn't help but to smile and say, "Thank you Lord."
