When tragedy happens,..that is when the should, have, could have and whys come into the mind...the doubt, the guilt, the fear. Those are all from the evil one.
But also comes the MIRACLE'S...the miracle's... They are all from HIM.

We all hear about the miracle's of a child having cancer and then going it a doctors visit and BAM...it is gone...a miracle.

The family that is losing their home...then...BAM...they get a check in the mail or a glitch in the system allows them to keep their home.

Those are all done in his glory...yes...tradgety does happen and he allows this broken world to work its course... giving a different road for his glory to be shown...slower, more intense and often with many sad and grief filled days to get to the finally destination of seeing that he is the one true GOD and he is wonderful in ALL THINGS...but he also does allow a shorter road for his glory to me shown and that is when miracles happen...things that only can be explained by the presence and power of GOD.

Years ago after my son had died, my daughter and I were going to go into town...as I got on the interstate, and was in a hurry as I always am...there was a slow dump truck in front of me...and I was going to pass...but a voice in my head said..slow down and take your time...as I decided to not pass a semi-truck passed me and the dump truck in front of me...as he went to pass the dump truck...he pulled over to quickly and hit the dump truck in front of me and the semi rolled and went into the ditch...the truck in front of me got stopped and I got stopped and did not hit him...MIRICLE...the dump truck driver was ok...MIRICLE...the semi driver was alive and ok...MIRICLE...and no one else driving on the interstate was hurt because of traffic being at a stand still...MIRACLE... If only one thing would have been different...a second, a minute...a turn here or there...or if I would have passed that dump truck...it would have been my car that the semi hit and not a big dump truck...MIRACLE. We may never see his total plan or thought for this that happen as long as we are here and not standing before him...looked at this passage this week...and seemed to fit all my thoughts this week about his ways are always not our own...and shows that he is truly bigger and more powerful than we can even imagine.

Isaiah 55:8-13 (New International Version)

8 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,"
declares the LORD.

9 "As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

12 You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the pine tree,
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the LORD's renown,
for an everlasting sign,
which will not be destroyed."
