Happy Ecstatic Fri in a month of miracles! I've been thinking about Mark Twain's quote: “The miracle, or the power, that elevates the few is to be found in their industry, application, and perseverance under the prompting of a brave, determined spirit.” What I (and others) miss about miracles is that we must put our lives into "drive" first; we initiate the miracle. Across most ancient religions -- be it Christianity, Judaism, Islam, etc -- it is taught that we take one step towards God, and God takes 10-20-100 or 1 million steps towards us. Notice, though, we must initiate the step. That's the key to having a miracle. Take the first step and expect a miracle today.
