Standing next to me, arms around my waist, she holds tight. I start to move away but her voice stops me and we remain in the comfortable embrace of sisters. “I keep two messages on my phone,” she tells me.
I know what she’s going to say. The first is an encouraging message from a friend and the second is…her voice breaks into my knowing, “One says you are completely blind in your left eye.”
I’m genuinely surprised by her confession. Tears burn my eyes and I squeeze my lids tight to keep them from falling. I remember that message.
The voice which started out strong now falters a bit, but she gathers strength and continues, “The other says that your doctor thinks it’s a miracle that you have your sight back.”
With that, the floodgates are opened and my cheeks become spillways for tears. Voice thick with emotion, I manage to say, “I didn’t know.”
Now her tears join mine. “It’s just such a miracle,” she whispers.
“I know,” I say. “It is. It really is,” and for one holy, immeasurable moment we both marvel at the miracle.
I can’t help but think how wise she is to keep that visible reminder of our miracle (it’s hers and yours too because you prayed). Remembering the amazing things He has done for us not only brings us joy as we rejoice in the favor of our God, it also bolsters our faith that He will continue to work on our behalf and do exceedingly, abundantly above all we can ask or think!
Are you needing a miracle today? I encourage you to take a moment to strengthen your faith in His ability to do amazing things for you by remembering what He has ALREADY done!
