It’s found in a four-year old boy telling you that you are beautiful enough to marry a King.

It is found in holding a new and precious life in your hands.

It is found in snow sparkling against the sun’s sacred touch.

It is found in a sister telling you that you are made for something more.

It is found in a Mom and Dad driving you to and from work.

It is found in a stranger’s smile or a child’s laughter.

A lullaby sung sweetly, a prayer prayed quietly, a journey well lived…

…There are miracles that abound each and every day in our lives.

I will stop to smell the roses. I will stand still enough to let Him move. I will praise and serve while I wait. The adventure is coming. I’m dusting off my fear caked clothes and setting my eyes toward the horizon. Look and see the sun is coming up. It is a new day…let all of us rejoice in His miracles.

15-17Yet the rescuing gift is not exactly parallel to the death-dealing sin. If one man's sin put crowds of people at the dead-end abyss of separation from God, just think what God's gift poured through one man, Jesus Christ, will do! There's no comparison between that death-dealing sin and this generous, life-giving gift. The verdict on that one sin was the death sentence; the verdict on the many sins that followed was this wonderful life sentence. If death got the upper hand through one man's wrongdoing, can you imagine the breathtaking recovery life makes, sovereign life, in those who grasp with both hands this wildly extravagant life-gift, this grand setting-everything-right, that the one man Jesus Christ provides?
Romans 5:17 The message
