Consider the following;
-the average person gets 80,000 heartbeats every day – day after day for years.
-there are over 3 trillion chemical reactions in the body every second.
-they will never invent a computer that can have anywhere close to the varied abilities of the human brain.
-the human body can do a better job of healing itself (if you will let it) than any medicine on the market.
-considering the billions of humans that have walked the earth or are now or will one day – not one has ever been exactly the same.
-there are over 3 billion brain cells that have hundreds of billions of neural connections that help you see, hear, think, feel, remember every second of every day.
-talk about multi-taking – nothing has ever or will ever equal the capacity that human physiology has.
-If the crust of the earth had been only ten feet thicker, there would be no oxygen.
-Had the oceans been just a few feet deeper, all carbon dioxide would have been absorbed and no vegetable life would ever exist.
-The slant of the earth is twenty-three degrees and produces our seasons. Scientists tell us that If this slant were not exactly as it is vapors from the ocean would move both north and south piling up vast continents of ice.
I could go on for pages with this stuff, but I am sure you get my drift.
If not – consider the trillions of miracles that take place every day in your body and mind that you don’t have to think about any of them – they just keep performing minute by minute flawlessly without your attention or concern. Miracles? If you don’t think so, wait till they stop and I’ll bet your opinion will change.
Why do so many people take these and millions of other miracles of nature for granted?
Is it arrogance or just denial? Is it an unwillingness to accept that all of nature including all humanity and every specie on the earth is nothing short of miraculous?
I don’t know, but what I do know is that very few people take the time or effort to stop now and then and just say thank you God for each and every miracle that has, is and will exist in my life in the future.
I am not trying to influence your spiritual values or justify or demean them in any way – whatever they are. My purpose is simply to state that everything that has existed, exists today or will exist in the future is not an accident. Over 100 years ago in Robert Laidlaw’s classic best seller The Reason Why (over 30 million copies in print) he wrote “Wherever you see successful or perfect design there is always a designer behind the scene.” Regardless of whether it’s a blueprint for a new home, heart surgery or your latest IPad.
Let me ask you – do you take the many miracles in your life for granted each day? Or, do you take time several times a day to just say thank you?
There are only two ways to live your life; as though nothing is a miracle or as though everything is a miracle.”
