“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein

Einstein hit it right on the head. What is your point-of-view? Do you see the miraculous in the everyday? Can you see the hand of God touching your minutes, shaping your hours, opening doors so that you can experience His presence?

So many times I go through my days with blinders on. I see the piles of laundry, the dishes in the sink, the work piled on my desk, and the traffic slowing me down, but fail to see the miracles that are all around me.

We are surrounded by wonder. The way the sunlight sparkles through the glass illuminates the presence of God. Flowers proclaim His infinite beauty and creativity. God still moves in this world – answering prayers, opening doors, and calling us to His heart. He plants His presence, love, glory, and power in the small crevices of my day. He longs for me to see Him, to find His fingerprints, to rejoice in the moments when I understand that everything is a miracle that points to Him.

Breathe in and out and marvel at the wonderfully complex way you are made. Look at a picture of your family and stand in awe at the miracle of love. Open your Bible, hear the voice of God speaking directly to your heart, and bow down in worship. Every moment is miraculous when we understand how completely everything in our lives is touched by the hand of God.

My Jesus Resolution today is to see the miracles all around me. I want new eyes to see the amazing things God has planted all through my day. I want to look at my world with freshness and wonder, not missing a blessing that He has given me. I want my heart to stay tender, my soul to stand in awe, my mind to by humbled by the way He is moving all around me. Today is a miracle. What are you going to see?
