How many times you hear people asking for miracles? And then sometimes others would jest and use the famous movie line of superstar Nora Aunor "Walang himala! Ang himala ay nasa puso ng tao, nasa puso nating lahat!".
I guess I was looking for a miracle last Christmas that's why I bought this book "How to Live a Life of Miracles" by bestselling author Bo Sanchez.
It's been a while since the last time I bought myself a book and actually finish reading it cover to cover. I'm glad I did. I guess that's the first miracle that ever happened to me... or maybe not. My perception of miracle changed after I read the book.
Before I revel the top secret for living a life of miracles, let us first try to define what Miracle is all about.
According to Merriam Webster online dictionary, mir·a·cle is a noun \ˈmir-i-kəl\.
: an unusual or wonderful event that is believed to be caused by the power of God
: a very amazing or unusual event, thing, or achievement
What is a miracle for you? Pause for a while and think about it.
It would be a big help if you have a clearer picture and understanding of what miracle means for you before you continue reading the rest.
Now that you have a clearer understanding of what miracle personally means for you, here are the Top 4 Secrets I unlocked from reading the book and may it also guide you as you live a life of daily miracles.
1. It is okay to allow yourself to be angry but pray to God to give you the power to #Forgive.
"Wish blessings upon those who hurt you and that blessing will come back to you."
Pray to God to help you understand the difficult personalities in your life. Pray that He will help you unload the burdens and bless you with the a forgiving heart... To accept your fault and other's fault. To forgive yourself and forgive others especially those who unconsciously caused you emotional pain and left a scar in your heart. May the Lord help you understand them and forgive them. May He heal the wounds of the past and nurture your heart with His grace.
2. Don't be afraid to ask. Don't settle for crumbs. Specify what you want and our Father in Heaven will give it to you.
"God wants to bless others through you,
but He has to bless you first."
Lord, you know my heart's deepest desires and biggest dreams. My will and Your will shall be done. Amen.
3. God has given every blessing you need in your life already. That your tank has your name on it. It's yours!!! All you need to do is open the faucet.
Take action. Stand up. Do something. When you pray for it, be ready to accept it. Learn to create your luck.
4. Bless others the way you are blessed by God...You can even do more!
"Pray for abundance and desire to give more."
When you give, you gain an abundance mentality. You realize that we live in a generous universe.
Bo Sanchez definitely reminded me that there are miracles everywhere through his book. These miracles doesn't have to to big and extraordinary, we just have to learn how to appreciate the intricate details of life like the aha moments when reading a book, the serenity of the night, the precious time with family, and the mere fact that you are breathing and reading this post, I must tell you that you are already miracle in my life! Thank you for supporting #solesearchingsoul!
Remember, we live in a world full of miracles and every moment in our lives is a chance to create a miracle, not just for our ourselves but for others as well. <3
To live a life of miracles, you must open yourself.
Look within. Let go. Let God. Give back.
