Something to ponder mid-week.
Do you believe in MIRACLES? Have you ever known something ‘impossible’ that has become ‘Possible’ and an actuality?
have you ever witnessed magic, or seen from the pens of mere humans extraordinary characters and even animals come to ‘life’. I have indeed witnessed and known all of these things. I’ve even seen a lot of deception masked as Miraculous but the bottom line is that all these other things glorified a human being and not a Divine God.
I’m praying and thinking today about how easy it would be to take a BOOK like the Christian Bible and try to assess it like a grand novel. Ie….A Christmas Carol or all the works of Shakespeare ( characters from a flowing pen). Human imagination sometimes based on historical events or people. Life from a human pen.
Look at the Bible as a MIRACLE……..a SCARLET THREAD of Redemption for all human beings. The Author or authors should not be assessed like you would Walt Disney. From Higher came the inspiration.
If this red thread runs from Genesis to- Revelation, how great it is if we could accept the WHOLE BOOK as a miracle. Live by it. As new Covenant people in Jesus Christ.
Something to think about.
Miracles are not contrary to nature at all. They are only contrary to what we know about nature. Augustine.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
