Miracles do happen: Look out for the little things
Let me tell you two stories:
—It was a bright morning; Amelia took the bus to the city; she had a list of things to buy, just a quick shopping, that’s what she was heading for. Suddenly the sky turned black and started pouring heavily. “God, what am I going to do now? I am going to be drenched for sure”, Amelia sighed as she cursed herself for not carrying an umbrella. But to her surprise, the rain stopped as she got down at the bus stop. Amelia took an hour to get all the stuff needed and returned home. Both her hands were occupied with bags of what she bought. Though she struggled to open the door, she managed to get home without getting wet. As she got inside and shut the door, the rain started again, and the whole day it continued—
—One fine morning, the sound of the alarm woke Amelia’s sleepy self to reality. She sat up in bed, stretched herself, said a little prayer and progressed to her daily chores. She was getting ready for work, and she noticed that one of her gold ear studs is missing. It was one of her favourite ones, which was gifted to her by her other half. It is not an irreplaceable thing, but it meant a great deal to her. She was a bit disappointed and disturbed but couldn’t stay looking for it as she had to head to work. She couldn’t remember whether she had it when she went to bed the night before, and that made it difficult as she didn’t knew where to look for it. But before she leaves, she saw the front half of the stud on the floor in her bedroom. She kept it safe and set off to work. Two days later, she found the other half on her bathroom floor. It surprised her because it was too small to see, so she didn’t keep much of a hope—
Sometimes little things happen in life that goes unnoticed because we are busy chasing bigger ones. There are certain times in life when we think it’s impossible, that’s not going to happen, or there is no way I could make it; yet again, things surprise us by taking an unexpected turn. That’s when miracles happen. Yes, that’s when God shows a sign, a reminder that no matter what happens, it’s me who is there for you; I can do amazing things for you, the things that are beyond what your brains can fathom. We forget to recognise and appreciate that little touch of God’s hand and his great thoughtfulness that works in the background in everything we do; and this is the reason why we easily give up and lose hope.
Let’s not forget that Miracles do happen..
