Miracles Are for Real: What Happens When Heaven Touches Earth
For anyone yearning to know the truth about miracles, there’s good news: time travel isn’t necessary. After examining hundreds of real-life stories told by ordinary people, we’ve confirmed what we all secretly hope—that life-changing miracles do still occur, and with surprising frequency. Inexplicable events that confound logic, and often the very laws of science as we currently understand them, still offer unmistakable evidence of God’s daily involvement in our lives.
We have come to believe, and hope you will, too, that miracles are not the “few and far between” phenomena we’ve taken them to be, reserved for supposed saints and on extraordinary occasions. Miracles just might be more tightly woven into the fabric of our reality than we recognize. C. S. Lewis once said: “Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see."
God is alive, well, and intensely interested in your life. Some people, especially in times of hardship and heartache, feel that God is a distant observer, nonchalant about the details of our personal daily existence. A close examination of modern-day miracles will prove resoundingly otherwise. Whether you’re in need of minor or major intervention, God cares deeply about your needs and circumstances. To put it more directly, God cares deeply about you.
Not only do miracles happen, but they still happen today. Throughout recorded history, miracles have taken a place among the most revered accounts and narratives. Some people call these myths, folklore, or legends. To others, miracle stories represent God’s mighty handiwork among his creation. We believe the Bible is our true guide for every aspect of life; it’s God’s message to humankind, and it’s our reliable source for wisdom and guidance regarding miracles.
Regarding the supernatural, the best way to live—the only way to live—is to believe that a miracle could happen at any moment. The cliché says, “Hope springs eternal.” But this isn’t always true. In our most trying times, it’s easy to lose hope and give in to despair. The stories and subject matter of this book are intended to show that God is fully capable of doing a great work in your life or the life of someone you love. Every word in the pages to follow affirms and validates what the apostle Paul said: God “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us."
