When I read or hear about miracles, I often get excited, inspired or left in awe. Here lately I have asked myself what constitutes a miracle. Are there miracles and coincidences and if so how can anyone tell them apart? In my searching I realize that there are no coincidences.

Some miracles are unmistakable and other ones are much quieter and are not easily seen. In realizing that miracles happen all the time every day, every minute of every day. There are no miracles to God, only to us mortals. Miracles are Gods’ power manifest in such a way as to defy human logic or understanding.

I have witnessed miracles in my life some in silent reminders of His divine nature or of an even greater magnitude like giant waves bringing life to a seemingly lifeless body. Miracles that has brought my son back to me alive or one that kept my son from plunging to his death.

These are but a few of the miracles I have witnessed in my own life. I know if I would view these as mere coincidences then I would be showing ingratitude to a loving God that is trying to tell me that He is here and is ever mindful of what is in my heart. Realizing and seeing the miracles in my life has caused my faith to grow immensely instead of minimizing things as just coincidences.

Once again I am truly blessed.

Spiritual Media

In my effort to letting the angel of death pass by. I no longer watch any news media. It is a true assault on my nirvana, my zen, my peaceful flow of positive energy. Now my news media comes from a more direct path to those that know and won’t deceive me. The Prophet, other church leaders, the scriptures, My Savior and Heavenly Father.

While the world passes by my windows, I watch them all scramble to get home to watch the evening news and trying to find the best channel or the most informative news source to feed their curiosity as to what is going on in their local community or the world.

I need only to read the scriptures and kneel in prayer for answers to an inquiring mind. And no part of my senses have been jeopardized by what the world has to offer. There is no chaos just a quiet reassurance that all is right and concise in my corner of the world.

Once again I come away feeling truly blessed and incredibly greatful.
