Realizing what miracles really are...

This is a subject that have many different answers form everyone that has an opinion. But what truly is a miracle? Does it have to be someone being healed instantly? or being lead from danger 2 seconds before it happens or is it only when something incredible, out of the ordinary happens? Or can a miracle be a small settle thing. Like a district meeting going great, or a lesson that actually went through, or if nothing else just feeling the spirit touch the hearts of those you teach. Now ask, are any of those smaller things and less miraculous then the bigger ones i listed? Do we as children of God differ in worth to him? So do the miracles that happen differ in worth or amazement? This has been one of the most important lessons i have learned in all my mission. Is that miracles from God are always happening, just us as humans don't always realize them. Because most the time they just appear to be regular everyday things. But i think it is those regular everyday things that happen that are the most important to us. We spend so much time praying and asking for something miraculous to happen so we can either reaffirm our faith or build us up when we are down. We become so focused on these ideas we have of what miracles that we let pass all the little ones the Lord is throwing our way. When i was but a "greeny" in the mission. I though miracles were only things that where big, like random people showing up to church and you've never meet them or people crying in the first lesson asking to be baptized. I have seen many such miracles but they are usually less common and far between. But recently i have learned through experience that miracles are just the small things the Lord gives us. Teaching a lesson is a miracle, sharing a testimony is a miracle, having a meaningful contact is a miracle. Its truly those small things, that seem so normal, are truly the things that define our lives. My experience has become so much more rewarding just looking for the small miracles that happen. Because each day i can get up with out a doubt I will see miracles.  Its really the small miracles i have come to love because the feed my soul in a constant way and not in a every now and again way. I love miracles, everyday we get up is one and every night we lay down is one as well. If we will all just look harder for the tiny miracles, then will we understand how miraculous our lives truly are.

Este momento es un momento de milagros...
