Miracles

August 23, 2012

 “But Jesus looked at them and said…‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible’ ” (Matt. 19: 26).

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Christians live in a world of miracles. We fight for impossible causes, endure impossible trials, forgive impossible wrongs, knowing that all things are possible with God.

This is not wishful thinking, not a matter of crossing our fingers, and hoping for the best. It is the warp and woof of our lives, the very fabric of our existence.

We experience the same pain and grief, the same injustice, non-believers do, yet see God’s hand in the beauty all around us. How can this be anything but miraculous? It certainly does not originate with us.

Our faith, itself, is miraculous, hinging as it does on Christ’s Incarnation and Resurrection. In an instant, death was defeated. Sin was washed away, and mankind’s relationship with God restored.

Prayers are not to be confused with daydreams. We know disappointment. We stumble and fall. But our path is always upward.

One day the sweat and grime, the tears, the blood will be nothing more than a memory. For now, miraculously, we persevere against the impossible because a miraculous God upholds us.
