Searching for a Miracle

I hope you guys are having an amazing morning. It’s a rainy day here in North Carolina, but that sleep I got was amazing because of it! No matter what the situation may be, there’s always some good in it somewhere.
So let me tell y’all a quick story about me. I don’t watch television. If you know me, you know that. Well the other day I went out to eat at Moe & D’s in Rocky Mount (a very awesome black-owned restaurant, might I add and plug), and I looked up at the tv screen and discovered that there was a lot of flooding in California due to mudslides. Immediately, my heart and prayers went out to everyone affected by such a disastrous situation.
Last night, I was wrapping up some work, and I went on one of our local news sites to do some research. When I got there, I saw an article headlined, “Rescuers ‘searching for a miracle’ in California mudslides” I can’t begin to tell you how that sent chills all over me. Searching for a miracle. Actively looking for it. Relentlessly pursuing it. Not sitting around and waiting to see if any bodies float up. Not standing on rooftops praying all day. SEARCHING for a MIRACLE.
That one headline shifted my mind. We are so passive sometimes. There is an awesome couple that is having a word and worship crusade tonight (shoutout to Jeremy and Chaurita Dawson-Herring). Yesterday, I posted their flyer on my Instagram and I captioned it, “I’m looking for a miracle”. But am I really? Am I actively looking for something miraculous to happen in my life, or am I just sitting back hoping something good happens in my life? There is most definitely a difference.
As I read the new article, I saw that the situation was bleak. The chances of survival were becoming slimmer and slimmer. However, none of that stopped rescue workers from searching for a miracle – and nothing in your life should stop you. NOTHING.
Turn over every stone. Knock on every door. Go down every street. Don’t stop until you obtain what you know is rightfully yours. It’s out there. I promise.
Have an amazing day today. Show love to yourself AND others. Be GREAT! I speak life to you and everyone and everything connected to you! Catch me tomorrow!
