In Need of a Miracle....or Two

It's been a long week:  for reasons I can't list here and reasons that probably wouldn't interest you anyway. 

But, as always, my favorite devotional book encouraged me today.  And, I thought maybe, just maybe, some of you might be needing a miracle or two also.  Be encouraged.

Living in dependence on ME is a glorious adventure. 
Most people scurry around with their noses to the ground,
trying to accomplish things through their own strength and ability. 
Some succeed enormously; others fail miserably. 
But both groups miss what is life is meant to be: 
living and working in collaboration with ME.

When you depend on ME continually, your whole perspective changes. 
You see miracles happening all around,
while others see only natural occurrences and "coincidences". 
You begin each day with joyful expectation, watching to see what I will do. 
You accept weakness as a gift from ME, knowing that my power plugs
in most readily to consecrated weakness.
 
You keep your plans tentative, knowing that MY plans are far superior. 
You consciously live, move, and have your being in ME, desiring that I live in you. 
I in you and you in ME. 
This is the intimate adventure I offer you.
