The way of the miracle-worker is to see all human behavior as one of two things: either love, or a call for love. -Marianne Williamson
I was listening to a song that came on the radio while I was driving to work this morning and a line from the song jumped out to me. It said “Instead of waiting for a miracle to happen, be the miracle.”
You see you can live life two ways. You can either have life happen to you or you can happen to life. You can either be a spectator or you can be a participant. Don’t get caught watching the paint dry as life passes you by.
While you were reading that last paragraph, there was probably a situation or two that popped into your mind. An instance where you had a chance to be a blessing to someone. There might even be a situation you’re thinking of right now where you can be a blessing to someone else. You can probably remember an instance where someone was a blessing to you.
And it doesn’t even have to be that much. I think the reason why we hesitate to be the miracle is because we think that we need to have a lot to give or that we need to do a lot in order to make an impact in someone else’s life. It can be as little as buying someone a meal or helping someone move. A little when invested properly can go a long way.
Just like the little boy, who only had five loaves and two fish, our little can become a miracle. What the little boy had wasn’t much at all, but it became enough to feed all the people there and then some. You see a little can become much when you place it in the right hands. God uses people that are willing to give their all no matter how small their all may seem to be. If you would do what you can do then God will do what you can’t do.
So the next time you’re waiting around for a miracle to happen, maybe the reason why the miracle hasn’t happened yet is because you’re supposed to be the miracle. Remember you were a miracle, so be the miracle for others.
