Recognize The Miracles In Your Life

  1. The last few months I haven’t been able to get the idea of miracles out of my head. When I read the Book of Mormon its with a blue copy, a red pencil & a theme. The last 3 months the theme has been miracles. This may sound real simple, but the most notable association I’ve made to miracles is of faith; miracles just don’t happen without faith. In 3 Nephi 19:35-36 it says: So great faith have I never seen among all the Jews; wherefore I could not show unto them so great miracles, because of their unbelief. Verily I say unto you, there are none of them that have seen so great things as ye have seen; neither have they heard so great things as ye have heard.

    I think part of faith is believing in God and expecting good things are going to happen, one of the Savior’s names is: An High Priest of Good Things to Come. I first wondered if Littlewood’s method was round about, perhaps his reasoning articulated his faith? Then I recalled that Elder Bruce R. McConkie observed “As an abstract principle faith is nothing; it is of no more worth than an abstract principle of mathematics. But faith in the heart of a man—a living, vibrant faith—can raise the dead, create worlds, and save souls.”

    Littlewood’s suggestion that an extraordinary thing can also be commonplace makes him sound so detached (& ridiculous); it’s important that we acknowledge God in all things, so that he can open our eyes to greater things.

    I liked your post because it made some good connections for my last few months of reading; we need faith to recognize miracles in our lives as well as ask for them.
