Mary of Nazareth, the most revered women in history, was unknown to her own generation, but known intimately and treasured by the One True God.  Walking the dusty lanes of ordinary every day, she was unaware that miraculous waited just around the corner, delivered in person by an angel.

In a quiet moment, the most intimate of conversations between heaven and earth took place, and Mary’s life, as well as all of history, was forever changed. 

Have you ever dared to ask for a miracle in your life?  You might say, “I don’t need a miracle.  I am not desperate.”  But the amazing work of God is not for the desperate; it is for the available. 

The miraculous life is one that is lived with the daily expectation that God will do something amazing in you and for you. Something wonderful that only He can do, something outside of your own ability. 

If life feels stuck and ordinary; if deep inside you are screaming for more or life is overwhelming, then run to that quiet place and seek intimacy with God.  He is waiting!

In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me, wholeheartedly, you will find me. Jeremiah 29:12-13 NLT

“Lord, my Lord, you have known me from my mother’s womb, and You know my innermost thoughts.  I cannot pretend with You.  I come to You in worship because of your greatness as Creator, because of Your mercy that has been poured upon me. Cleanse my mind of fear, anger, and negative thoughts.  Fill me with your joy this day, I pray !  Do the work in me only You can do.” 

I give you praise because ________________________________________
