What Are You Doing While You Wait For Your Miracle?

Inspired today from a message at church…

Have you read  the poem “Footprints in the Sand?” It’s someone talking to God about the two sets of footprints on the beach, and how God was walking with them. But then they noticed that there was only one set, and they thought God had left them, but God says that that was the time that He carried them.

Ok…While I am comforted that God will carry me when I need to be carried, this is a sappy piece of writing that doesn’t really help me for most of my life.

How often do I really need to be carried? How often in my life am I totally crushed? 5% of my life? Maybe 10%? What about the other 90% of the time? What am I to do then?

In Hebrews 11, the “heroes of faith” chapter in the Bible these men and women were active. They didn’t expect to be carried by the Lord. Instead, they actively went after their miracle, focusing on their part, rather than what I see some folks do, which is…nothing, as they “wait on the Lord.”

I prefer this poem instead. I give you…Buttprints In The Sand…
