During one of the many Reformation battles, a young soldier found himself and his army being soundly defeated by the enemy. He and his comrades hastily retreated from the battlefield in defeat, running away in fear of their very lives.
GOOD MORNING !
Every day there miracles all around us. Sometimes we see them and very often we don’t. As I try to dwell on the ‘bright side’, I’m often in search for them. I am always on the look out to see what blessings each day may contain.
On my way home from work yesterday I witnessed a car going through a red light. Red lights mean stop, but this car jumped the gun. The turn signal in the lane on his right turned green, but his light to go straight didn’t. Well it was a miracle that car did not get hit. I said a little prayer of thanks for that one.
How often I’ve almost done the same thing.
When I see things like that happen I always think that persons guardian angel must be working overtime.
Today is another work day for me. The 2nd of 5 this week. And believe me when I say , I do say my guardian angel prayer as I go out the drive way.
That prayer is followed by one for my family and friends too.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Working high upon the steep roof of a barn the old guy lost his footing andstarted a rapid slide downward. Certain that he would be killed, the man, whowasn’t a regular customer, cried out to God, Lord, save me!
Immediately, his cuff caught on a nail which was just far enough out to snaga healthy chunk of material. With a sigh of relief, the fellow prayed again,Never mind, Lord, my pants caught on a nail and stopped me.
I wonder how many miracles we explain away. Out of need, a prayer goes up;but when the answer comes, it is rationalized. Even more I wonder how manymiracles we would see if we expected to see more
