Chapter 2, Page 16, Book 13
Recipe For A Miracle
1 cup Tension
2 cups Stress
1 teaspoon of Guilt
2 heaping cups of Limited Time
3/4 tablespoon of Urgency
A dash of "No Other Choice"
3 heaping cups of Faith
Fold ingredients gently into a bowl. Mix vigorously and add a few tears. You'll sweat a little as you knead the dough.
Pack it firmly between your hopes and dreams and form into a perfect little ball.
Sprinkle it with a little faith (I recommend Hebrews 11), rolling the ball in the flour until fully covered.
Place it under a veil of belief and allow it to rise.
Put it in an oven that has been pre-set at the perfect temperature for the heat of trials and tribulations.
Allow it to brown under the warmth of God's love. Remove after due season and allow to cool in the confidence of His promise.
Garnish with your praises. Arrange neatly on a platter of thankfulness and serve to friends, families and, oh yes, strangers . . . invite them too!
Pass on the recipe to all who request it and let them know that with this recipe, they have the makings of a miracle!
WORD FOR TODAY
A miracle is an event attributed to divine intervention. Alternatively, it may be an event attributed to a miracle worker, saint, or religious leader. A miracle is sometimes thought of as a perceptible interruption of the laws of nature.
I believe that miracles happen every day of our lives. Life is a miracle in itself. You and I are miracles. The sun comes up and the moon comes out. The earth spins on its axis and we have a brand new day every 24 hours. The seasons change. Nature runs in its perfect cycles and we don’t have to do anything except appreciate it.
I always like to think of the miracles that happen every spring when the tulips pop up through the ground after being frozen away underground every winter. The buds pop out on the trees and everything starts to grow once again.
I've seen things happen that can only be described as miracles. I believe in big miracles and keep on giving thanks for the little ones too.
