Celebrating miracles

Happy New Year!

That moment you wake up and you can see, feel, hear, taste and smell.

That’s a magnificent miracle to many people can’t you tell?

Life flows through your body.

Your heart warms up with each beat of life.

The rhythm of life echoes through the atmosphere.

The brain lights up with each thought that is created.

The creator of life has sustained you throughout the challenges that congregated.

It took a miracle for the price he had to pay.

The many dangers that he shielded us from that came our way.

The job, business, home and clothing that he provided.

The food that filled the cupboards and

The healing that you prayed for and received.

It took a miracle, modern day miracles are still happening.

Protection throughout a worldwide pandemic;

Now that miracle is epic.

And we cannot forget the miracles of ancient times.

Turning water into wine, so that everyone at the wedding could dine.

Feeding five thousand people with just five loaves of bread and two fish.

Resurrecting the dead, giving sight to the blind, healing the cripple

And parting the red sea.

Let’s celebrate the miracles of 2020 in 2021.

And declare 2021 as the year that many victories will be won.

Let’s celebrate the victory over a battle that you thought would never end.

Let’s celebrate the miracles that we don’t even comprehend.

The bills that were paid on time;

The debts that were mysteriously cleared;

The problems that were solved when no one supported you;

The blessing that came when you needed it the most;

The favour that you received when you felt rejected;

The success that you attained when no one believed you could.

It took a miracle; my God is a miracle working God.

The strength, love, inner peace and joy that God installs within your heart.

Don’t forget that every day is a miracle,

A spectacle of God’s grace and mercy towards us.
