  1. God does work miracles you are right and it is definitely working with what we already, or sometimes it is out of the blue circumstance where provision comes and you know in your inner soul that it’s come from him! God does love us and wants the best for us….we are so blessed and lucky to have him in our corner. I couldn’t live without him!

  2. Thank you Alyson. This is beautifully written and is exactly what my heart needed this morning!!

  3. I don’t think nearly enough about the love of God, but it is so much more efficient and powerful as fuel for living and serving than the duty and responsibility (or even calling) that I resort to on a daily basis.
    Thanks for your story offered here as a catalyst for life change!

  4. Alyson, this is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing this truth the way you did – totally met me where I’m at today. May God bless you, keep you, and continue using you, sister.

  5. I was just driving home worrying myself to death about how I’m going to feed my kids this month. How am I going to pay rent? How am I going to move next summer if there isn’t anything to move with? And now the dog has to have stitches?
    And then I open my computer to see this first thing.
    That in itself is a small miracle, so thank you.

  6. This reminded me of a few yrs ago when I was taking monthly spiritual discipline classes. After each class we had the opportunity to practice the new discipline. My first attempt at contemplative prayer was challenging, but oh so rewarding w patience. God met me w those same words. “Let me love you. Let me love you. Let. Me. Love. You.” Today, reading those words, brought back the enveloping feeling of complete fulfillment and acceptance.

    • Wow. Sounds like something only God can do. I think He does some of His best work in the 11th hour!

    • That sounds like an amazing class! Yes- it’s that intimacy that keeps us coming back for more. ♥️

  7. Alyson,

    Christians don’t often think of the vastness of God’s love. We know He loves us. But do we comprehend the depth of His love? Zephaniah 3:17 The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” The God go the universe rejoices over me!! WOW!! Do we fully understand that? Our church takes communion each week. We have a wall hanging that shows Christ on the cross with all His blood spilling out for us. The more one looks at that picture & hears good meditations on communion the more we can comprehend His love. I believe most Christians act out of “duty” like it’s something they have to do-not something they get to do. We should all let God love us fully & comprehend His love better. Then we will not act out of duty but out of love for what Christ has done for us. We want to show the world Christ’s love & this is how we’re doing it. The ingredients for a miracle are what we already have plus God inescapable love. Think on that & go spread His love to others!

    Blessings 🙂

  8. Ahhh.. we are always looking to see a miracle to take place right in front of us. We ask God to send us a message such as the burning bush so that we will believe deeper, so that our faith will be stronger and we may speak of this to others. The real truth is we are the miracles of God and we should be telling everyone this message. Because He loved us, He died for us and that in itself is how great His love is for us. I pray I will be reminded of this and be that miracle for those who may need, to tell His miraculous story to others.
