On the Brink of a Miracle November 26, 2013

I’m privileged to be over at Pick Your Portion today, writing about a beautiful mystery: how Jesus could pull off miracles all on his own, but how he invites us to join him anyway. Here’s a sneak peek…


PYP 11-13


When I was little—much too little to know the rules of the road, let alone reach the gas pedals—my dad would sneak me onto his lap when he was driving so I could “help.” As soon as we reached the dead-end road leading to our house, he’d put my chubby fingers on the wheel and cover them with his own big hands. I’d squeal in delight as we made our way past the old barn, past the palomino horse’s pen, past the neighbors’ house on the hill, and finally into our driveway.


At some level I knew that Dad was the one operating the vehicle, not me, but I thrilled to think he would want my help. And I loved being in such close proximity to him as we embarked on this daring (and unsanctioned-by-mom) adventure. . . .

    Jesus certainly doesn’t need us but we are privileged to join Him to accomplish His purposes. What an amazing joy when we get to partner with Him with what He is doing in our world. Be blessed today and find a way to bless someone else!

    He didn’t invite you because He needed your help. He invited you for the sheer joy of having you along for the ride. that says it all.    He doesn’t need us to pray, but uses our prayers in others’ lives .. and all b/c of His deep, compassionate and tender love He has for us.       thx Stephanie
