Miracles in Slow Motion”

“Miracles in Slow Motion”
Patience Required
How we love to think of miracles
Someone healed
Circumstances altered
In an instant
God still does such miracles
And yet so many of the miracles I see
Occur not in a flash
But in a persistent pattern of obedience
My friend Eugene Peterson called it
“A long obedience in a single direction”
Seeing a Human heart change
Not in a flash but by being loved
By someone who is more interested in loving than scoring
More interested in the person becoming
Than in claiming to be
I see certain organizations that exemplify this kind of miracle
Teen Challenge does in a year program
Nurturing the person until they choose to change
The longer I live the more I know it works
We cannot force a person to a change of heart
We may by loving them
Allow them the time and reason
That will cause them to change
Is it a miracle
From where I sit it is
