About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Miracles, miracles, miracles

Everyday, there are miracles happening around us.

Some are very simple straightforward, some are major and life changing, some are mysterious and magical.

God's grace and miracles are aplenty to go around.

This month, I plan to write about miracles. Miracles in my life, miracles in lives around me.

I would love to also share your miracles. If you would like to share a miracle of yours (names can be kept private), send me an email to nilsmusings@gmail.com

The wiki says the following about miracles:
A miracle is an unexpected event attributed to divine intervention. Sometimes an event is also attributed (in part) to a miracle worker, saint, or religious leader. A miracle is sometimes thought of as a perceptible interruption of the laws of nature. Others suggest that God may work with the laws of nature to perform what people perceive as miracles. Theologians say that, with divine providence, God regularly works through created nature yet is free to work without, above, or against it as well.

A miracle is often considered a fortuitous event: compare with an Act of God.
In casual usage, "miracle" may also refer to any statistically unlikely but beneficial event, (such as surviving a natural disaster), or simply a "wonderful" occurrence, regardless of likelihood, such as a birth. Other miracles might be: survival of a terminal illness, escaping a life threatening situation or 'beating the odds.' Some coincidences may be perceived to be miracles.

There is one thing in this description that I do not entirely agree, which is some coincidences may be perceived as miracles.

I believe that miracles are miracles, a kind divine act of forgiveness from God. Reason some people have started perceiving miracles as coincidences is that many of us have become non-believers.

Most of us will disagree with my statement, most of us say that we believe in God but a few of us believe in miracles. We want to rationalise things that happen to us, things that are unexplainable.

It has been a miraculous one month journey for me in January. I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey which has taken me deep within myself and to start living a passionate life.

I would love to hear about your journey and your miracles. I will maintain absolute anonymity if your desire and if you would like me to mention your name, I will respect that too.

So, again, I do kindly urge you or your friends or family members to share your miracles. Or share miracles of people around you. I will be sharing mine. So, do share yours with me. Send me and email at nilsmusings@gmail.com.

Take care and be well.

Miracles happen for a reason (most of the time it is mind-blogging and beyond any rational explanation).
I am a big fan of miracles and magic. Have been since I was a little kid (although many have tried to discourage me).
We both have some amazing miracle(s) to share with the general public. So help us God.
And all the best with the wonderful entries 'to be' this coming days.

I certainly believe in miracles (and magic) and I cannot wait to read what you'll be posting this next month.
