Jen’s Gem: God gives you a glimpse into His grace every day. Be on the lookout!
I slept through the night last night. I realize in the scheme of things this is not likely earth-shattering news to you. But it is to me.
For reasons I’m still trying to figure out, falling asleep and more importantly, staying asleep are elusive to me. Perhaps it’s due to fluctuating hormones or stress or overindulging in that late night treat.
But whatever the reason is, I find myself questioning the occurrence. Could it really be true? This morning as I poured my coffee, I found myself replaying the night to be sure it actually happened. When I realized it had, I was in awe. I’d experienced a miracle.
I wonder how many miracles you and I miss because we doubt their existence. Our world is full of chaos and so it’s understandable that miracles are being overlooked, even ignored. So much stimuli is vying for our attention that we miss the beauty of finding a penny from heaven or the perfect parking spot when we’re running late or a full night’s sleep.
Maybe these examples aren’t true ‘miracles’, but they are what I like to call glimpses into God’s grace. They are hints that He is thinking about us and wanting us to know He’s got our backs. He understands our trials and is reassuring us that all is well.
I’d like to encourage you to pay attention to the miracles in your life today. When they show up – be grateful. Know that God is nudging you to release your doubt in them – and in Him. Soak in His love for you in that moment. There’s none greater.
Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.(Psalm 136:26)
