Episode 70

Ever since mentioning that viral video last week of a sheep jumping right back into a ditch after being rescued, I’ve been bombarded by Bible verses having to do with Jesus as our Shepherd and the promises God has made to his sheep. A couple verses from Hebrews 13 have been hounding me, so I decided…

A Timely Nod From God

At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. (Galatians 6:9b NLT) When I launched Mid-Week Miracle last month, I noted the name doesn’t promise that you’ll read a testimony about a miraculous healing or find a story about signs and wonders each week. (Although I did…

Episode 69

My daughter texted me a viral video earlier this week of a sheep jumping right back into a ditch after being rescued. Seeing that careless sheep hopelessly stuck by repeating the same mistake made think of the first part of Isaiah 53:6. “All we like sheep have gone astray…” (NIV) I’m thankful for the hope…

Miracles Come in All Languages

Last week, I wrote about a medical miracle. If you read last week’s Mid-Week Miracle, you may be wondering if I have a new hip or if God surprised me with a last-minute miracle. Well… I have a new hip AND God surprised me with a last-minute miracle. Miracles Come in all Languages The supernatural demonstration…

Episode 68

Ever noticed how the Holy Spirit often gives the same message to several different messengers within the same timeframe? Whether you hear a Sunday sermon, read a daily devotional or listen to a Christian podcaster, you keep hearing the same thing. I read a daily devotional called Give Him 15, and was encouraged by a…

Episode 67

With the beauty and majesty of Easter Sunday fresh on my mind, I was led to the book of Romans for today’s episode. This week’s declaration comes straight from verse 14 of Romans 6 and it’s designed to remind you that you are not a slave to obeying the letter of the law. You are…

Remembering the Good Things

I’ve been praying for a medical miracle. This week’s edition of Mid-Week Miracle comes to you the day after I’m scheduled for total hip replacement surgery. I continue to pray fervently to avoid the scalpel, so that plan could change. Yes, I believe God still works miracles of healing today. I’ve seen a woman I…

The Fruit of Persistent Prayer

I truly believe God answers every prayer by responding with one of three answers: 1. Yes (my personal favorite). 2. No. 3. Hang on and I’ll get back to you (my least favorite). Hearing God say “no” is hard, but I particularly dislike waiting for his answer. Paul asked God three times to remove the…

Episode 66

This week is a really big week for the church. I saw a graphic on Facebook that said “A lot can happen in seven days” and to prove it, the graphic contained side-by-side line drawings of a palm branch, a crown of thorns, a cross on a hill, and a stone rolled away from a…

God Speaks Your Language

God recently spoke to a friend of mine in a way that only a mother with young children could understand. I instantly connected with the Play-Doh illustration God used to impress the truth upon her heart. The connection formed from fond memories of molding the colorful clay into various shapes with my daughter when she…
