This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him. - John 2:11
I remember reading these stories as a new Christian and wishing I was around at the time He did miracles. I used to wonder how anyone could witness Jesus himself change water into wine, or heal a blind man, and not believe He was the Savior of the world? Yet there were so many who witnessed and didn’t believe.
But as I read more of these stories, and as I grew in my faith and understanding of Jesus and how God works in our lives, it became so very apparent to me that God does still do miracles. All the time. The problem is we just don’t see the miracles. Just as in the days when Jesus walked this earth, the world clouds people’s judgment and understanding of what is happening, so much so that when the miracle is happening right in front of us, we come up with some rationalization to explain it.
Having lived a life chock full of trials up on trials, I can tell you God still does do miracles. My life is a story of God at work in miraculous ways. I could list countless stories of how He has worked miraculously in my life, how has provided a way out of every difficult valley I’ve walked through, how he has healed time and time again what couldn’t be healed, how he has provided for me and my family when there wasn’t a way, how he has offered his protection in times of danger, how he has made right all the wrongs in my life. I also know the world could come up with an explanation for everyone of those miracles.
But the miracles He has performed in my heart are the ones that cannot be explained away. They are the ones I treasure as the true miracles in my life. He has moved mountains in my heart, and he’s done it every time in a supernatural way – mountains of fear, mountains of pride, mountains of hurt - there one day and gone the next, replaced with a deep confidence in his sovereignty.
God does still do miracles - keep your eyes open in your heart soft, and you will see them every single time.
Press on ~ you are loved 💗

I am a believer in Christ, and I have breast cancer. On August 17, 2017, I was diagnosed with an aggressive (HER2+), recurrent (hormone negative) type of Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. At this point, they have not yet staged my cancer because they are waiting for the biopsy results from a suspicious spot in the second breast. The biopsy is scheduled for September 5th, with a lumpectomy to follow on September 7th. They will formally stage my cancer after they biopsy my lymph nodes, which will be taken during the surgery. It doesn't make any sense to me that I have a cancer diagnosis - I am a fairly healthy woman who runs 2 miles almost every day and eats a gluten-free, primarily paleo diet, with no family history at all. But it makes sense to God, and so here I am. Update ~ They found 4 isolated invasions during the lumpectomy. Due to the nature of my cancer (HER2+ and ER-), the recommended protocol is chemotherapy and radiation. Beginning in October, my chemotherapy regime
When we launched our new blog we had no idea if anyone would see it or be helped by it, but we knew that the LORD was prompting us to step out in faith and just do it. The response has been amazing and we are looking forward to how God will use this space for His glory. We have learned over many years of service in a variety of ministries, that God does not require human assistance to realize His plans for individuals, churches, nations, or the human race. But the story of the bible is the story of God’s will playing out through the words and actions of the His children. So…we pray, meditate on his Word, and write from the heart about the truths that mold our faith, guide our actions, and inspire our hearts and minds. Please visit the site and subscribe to continue receiving posts. https://graceinmarriage.com/ It is our sincere hope that you are blessed by our work here and welcome your input on how we can make Grace in Marriage even better. Thank you for your support.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. 26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. - Psalm 73:25-26 What believer would not want to experience the kind deep devotion to God found in these verses? This kind of loyal commitment is the desire of every person of faith....yet it eludes so many of us. If you've been a believer for long, you know there are times it does not come easy. There is a great price involved in reaching the kind of faith found in these verses. This level of commitment is only achieved through fierce struggle. The battle between Spirit and flesh is constant, but it is in the battle that we are strengthened when we choose to lean in and trust God, to turn to Him for our strength in the battle, and to keep our eyes fixed on Him despite what the world throws at us. Asaph wrote these words only after a difficult and confusing crisis of faith. He was tempted to com
