Believe

Last night I was speaking with a friend on the phone. We discussed many things but one thing really stuck out and I wanted to share it with you.

My friend's daughter had been coughing all day. Mom was worried as the night progressed, her little one would possibly catch a fever and have to stay home from school.

During night time prayers, Mom and daughter said their protection prayer over her. They asked God for light of healing to be washed over her and for protection through the night. I'm not getting that prayer down word-for-word but you get the gist of it.

As Mom walked away, her daughter said something like "Mom, I'm going to be fine tomorrow because we prayed." Her daugther truly, 100% believed she was going to be fine because she asked God to watch over her and to take away her cough. 100% believed.

Mom now worried a bit more. Not only about the cough but now over "What if she's worse in the morning and gets disappointed at God?" Gotta love moms.

In the morning, my friends daughter was just fine. All day, only one to two little coughs, nothing like she experienced the day before.

The miracle here is not so much about the cough going away but more about what that little girl experienced. She believed something with all her heart as if it had already come true. There was not one doubt about it.

She experienced what we all can experience, if you believe. If you believe as this child believed, you can tap into that Something Within that heals us, not only physically, but spiritually as well. That's only the beginning...

When was the last time you really, truly believed, let it go, gave it over and had your own little miracle?
