Ordinary Miracles

Written by Julie

It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it’s time to snow
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you every day
Open up and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like every time a raindrop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Birds in winter have their fling
But always make it home by spring
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up every day
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
‘Cause we’re all a part

Of the ordinary miracle
Ordinary miracle
Do you want to see a miracle?
Ooh ooh ooh, oooh ooh ooh

It seems so exceptional
That things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Sun comes up and shines so bright
And disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Ooh ooh ooh, oooh ooh ooh
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

~sung by Sarah McLachlan

This isn’t a “Christian song,” but I love the message. We are surrounded by ordinary miracles–things so common and taken-for-granted that are in reality extraordinary, mind-blowing miracles. Gifts. Unnecessary blessings. Nature (and other areas) proclaim God’s glory.

The heavens declare the glory of God…

Psalm 19:1 (KJV)

What’s even more mind-blowing is that “we’re all a part / Of the ordinary miracle.” We. are. miracles. Works of art. Masterpieces. God’s creation and image-bearer and dwelling-place.

Remember that as you go throughout the rest of this (supposed-to-be) nice-weather week. 🙂

We’re often like reservoirs, holding in all the grace and gifts, instead of rivers, letting it all flow through us to others.
