Today Reminder – 3 January 2017

A reminder for today
"I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it! (John 12:14)

How are you, my friend? How are those new year resolutions coming? Last night we watched the movie “Miracles from heaven”. It is a very inspirational movie and if you haven’t seen it, here is a quick break down. 

Based on the incredible true story of the Beam family. When Christy (Jennifer Garner) discovers her 10-year-old daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers) has a rare, incurable disease, she becomes a ferocious advocate for her daughter’s healing as she searches for a solution. After Anna has a freak accident, an extraordinary miracle unfolds in the wake of her dramatic rescue that leaves medical specialists mystified, her family restored and their community inspired.

Now the movie is really good to watch, but you can google the story of little Annabel if you are not able to see the movie. Anyway the miracle is just amazing and Annabel’s experience with Jesus even more so. When asked what Jesus looked like, Annabel described him as having brown hair, a beard and he wore a purple sash.

"Heaven was very bright and it was very peaceful," Annabel recalled. "There was no pain, and that's why I wanted to stay. And I sat on Jesus' lap and I asked Him if I could stay.

"He said, 'No, Annabel, I have plans for you on Earth that you cannot complete in heaven, but whenever the firefighters get you out, there will be nothing wrong with you."

The one thing that stood out is when Annabel’s mom (Christy) said that we should live each day as if it is a miracle and take a moment to see all the little miracles around us. Jesus said that we would do greater things and that we can ask anything in His name.

So this brings me to my third new years resolution and that is to live each day as if it is a miracle with joy and a grateful heart. 

Lord, let us see the little miracles that we all miss as we focus more and more on you. Help us again to put on your armour as we prepare for the challenges of this day. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
