Favorite Thing #3

Bedtime prayers at our house usually end something like this --

Me: Thank You, Jesus, for being our Savior and our Shepherd and our Very Best Friend. Thank You that You're always, always with us and that You never, ever change.

Jack (whispering): And don't forget to say Thank You that Jesus makes miracles.

Me: Oh yes, we thank You, Jesus, that You make miracles.

Jack: And that He never makes mistakes.

Me: We absolutely thank You, Jesus, that You never make mistakes. Thank You that we can always trust You, no matter what. It is so wonderful to know that You will always keep Your promises.

One of my favorite things about Christmas is being reminded of God's faithfulness, His predictability to do the miraculous, the extraordinary, beyond-your-wildest-dreams, whatever-it-takes to keep His Word.

To believe in a miracle is only a way of saying that God is free -- free to do a new thing. (Eugene H. Peterson)
