Please, Sir may I have some more?

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18   Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.


Small miracles are miracles all the same.  I often hear those, who after finding a perfect parking spot or finding a needed item on sale saying, “Praise the Lord.” Instantly I ask myself, “Does God have an interest in my ability to park fifty feet closer to the store?”  Does God orchestrate that perfect shirt on sale? Do we trivialize and lessen God’s big miracles by giving thanks for the small ones? 

I do not think so. God is the divine caregiver. God in my life allows me to see the miracles in everyday things. Not only the sudden, dramatic great, and good fortunes wafting in on a new wind from the sky type of miracles, but mostly in routine soft smile type. C. S. Lewis said it well, “Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.”   Each little thing that comes gently into our lives is a miracle just the same.

Today as we walk in our lives of quiet introspection, find a miracle today. Whether it is a small incremental adjustment or large and  life changing, simply acknowledge it and give thanks. If you look you will find.
