Have You Witnessed a Miracle?

Miracles come in many forms. They come in the form of the miracle of restored health, of improved relationships, of found children, of employment found, and of financial restoration.

One of the vivid memories that I have is from the movie, Miracle. The 1980 American Olympic hockey team made up of 20 college players defeated the undefeated Soviet Olympic Hockey team made up of professional players in the first medal round of the Olympics. I can still hear the voice of the announcer (Al Michaels) say with less than five seconds left to go in the game, “do you believe in miracles – YES!”


I have witnessed many miracles in my life. While a teen, I loved basketball and planned on trying out for the high school team when I was a sophomore.  However, I severely broke my leg on a river trip in the month of June about 5 months before the tryouts were scheduled to be held.  When I asked the doctor about the basketball tryouts, he broke the bad news.  He told me that the break was so bad that he expected me to be in a full leg cast for 8 months, followed by a cast up to my knee for another 6 months after that.  In fact, he continued with the bad news, I would probably never walk again without a limp, much less play competitive basketball.

I was absolutely crushed! How could this happen to me?  It wasn’t supposed to be like this!

During the next several months, there were several experiences that I had that I hold sacred in my life.  These experiences I view as direct miracles that allowed me to not only walk without a limp, but I was able to run and jump and even tryout for the team.

Do I believe in miracles?  Absolutely!  I have experienced them in my life and witnessed them in the lives of my family.

I also hope for miracles. I hope for the miracle of the restoration of health for several members in my family and my wife’s family with cancer. I hope for success in the lives of my children in the choices that they make. I hope for long term financial stability for me, my parents, and for my siblings.

  1. I always knew there was a God but does he rlleay listen to our prayers. I now believe he does. I was diagnosed with Cushin Syndrome and had a tumor in my head. I could not believe it but the lab work and the MRI confirmed it. I was advised that I had to go to the Mayo Clinic. Meeting with the doctor there and they did all their test and found that the tumor died and cortisones had gone back to normal. I did not need to have surgery! I was shocked and so was the doctor. I was cured. It will take sometime for my body to get back to normal. I will no longer have high blood pressure and I might not be a diabetic. That to me was wonderful news and I knew then that God had listened to all my prayers, my friends and family prayers. I do believe now that Miracles do happen. There is hope for me in this life.
