Lately, I’ve been struggling with some emotions and difficulties. I’ve been praying and obsessing over God’s plans and my role. I’ve wanted something to happen and have been asking God for mercy and blessings.
It has been hard during this time, but it’s also been transformative.
During a moment of difficulty, I prayed to God, all I need is a miracle. Suddenly, the song, All I Need is a Miracle sprang into my head. I went home and played it on YouTube. I know the song is not about Christ, but I was singing it to Him – all I need is you (Christ).
A few days later and I could see that God had started to answer my prayer. I was really feeling it was going to work out and all would be right. I decided to go for a celebratory cup of coffee at Starbucks. I hopped in my car and the song playing didn’t suit me. I flipped the channel up one and of course, wouldn’t you know it, All I Need is a Miracle started playing.
I laughed; God was truly playing a joke with me. I knew He thought it would be funny to put that song on the radio.
I actually didn’t know who sang the song, so when I looked at the digital display, it showed Mike and the Mechanics as the artist. Ha! Being a Mike, how fitting that me and the great Mechanic of the world should be singing this song.
How true in life it is, that we live with the great mechanic, who through His grace, we are fixed. It was then that a tear of joy sprang forth.
