Easter Sunday nears and I reflect on the word: Miracle. “Miracle” is a poetic word of power and love braided together in awe. What was the greatest miracle in my life? I shared this story before but I want to share it again today.
Jesus’s greatest miracle was His own resurrection from the dead. I didn’t always believe in that miracle. When I was six and my mom told me to bring the trash can back to the house, my response was anger and kicking it all over the yard.
My mom calmly told me, “You know Jesus saw you disobeying me. How do you think that made Him feel?”
She then led me to the Lord in my living room. Sitting at the coffee table on my knees, I bowed my small head and asked Jesus to forgive me and to help me to become a good little girl and to come into my heart. To become my Savior. His miracle became so real to me. He was alive, and He was in my heart.
The miracles of Jesus did not start with His resurrection. He brought back people from the dead. He healed the sick. He made the lame to walk again. He healed the brokenhearted.

Jo describes her day at the women’s conference in the beautiful Sierra Mountains outside of Yosemite National Park when she decided to participate in the high ropes course, something she never tried before. She writes about the euphoria she felt when she reached the summit, but then the fear that washed over her as realizes she must jump a great gulf. Jo then writes:
“As I stood there, precariously perched atop of the pole, the diameter of which wasn’t much wider than my feet, I panicked! …. but in my fear, I couldn’t move… How often do we experience similar situations in our walk with Christ? … Fear. Fear of rejection, fear of failure and fear of things not working the way we want. But … ”
