How to Manufacture a Miracle
You picked a good day to check out my blog, because today I am going to share an incredibly wonderful secret with you. It could change your life if you allow it. I believe it is at least worth your consideration. Here goes…
A blessing is like a birthday cake.
When someone we love has a birthday, we oftentimes bake a cake for them and make it as special as we can. When we give them the cake, we end up getting a piece for ourselves. That is just the way it is. When I make a conscious decision to grace someone else and craft their miracle, there is always a little miracle left over for me. It is the simple formula and schematic of how to manufacture a miracle. With this blueprint, you can put up a miracle on every street corner and in every life you touch.
I have found that a good rule of thumb when deciding what to do next is to determine if it does one of two things:
1. Does it help someone else?
2. Would God smile on the behavior?
If it doesn’t help people and doesn’t please God, I generally don’t engage in that kind of behavior. This creates more miracles in reverse. When I don’t act like a selfish goon anymore, I don’t create hardships for other people. Not hurting people is just as productive as helping them. Not hurting them is helping them. The last thing we want to do is indiscriminately harm people. This process reliably creates more and more blessings.
I have heard it said that Grace is now. At this very special and important point in my life, that is great and easy news to accept. God resides in the moment and participates in our lives to the extent that we allow Him. If we are not experiencing miracles in our life, it is because we are not creating any and if we want to blame the person responsible, you’ll find them in your bathroom mirror. I encourage you to begin your career manufacturing miracles right now…this very moment.
Share this secret with everyone through your actions.
