A little more than ten years ago, a couple approached us about buying an existing Christian bookstore. We prayed about it for twelve months. When I finally heard the asking price, I knew I was experiencing a miracle.
I almost feel guilty today; because once again, I'm experiencing a miracle. As a writer, I see a miracle every time one of my stories is accepted. Every time someone reads my words, and I make a difference--it's a miracle. Best of all, I'm doing the work I most have a passion to do.
Not everyone is so blessed. Two close family members of mine are working jobs they hate. They anxiously wait for the right opportunity to come along to do what they really want to do.
I'm there all ready and even when I receive disappointing news from a rejection, I try to remember the other miracles of acceptance. Some days I feel positively guilty but then I thank God and enjoy His gift again.
Are you living your miracle? What's holding you back?
