Miracles in the Air – Miracles Everywhere
By Denise Schmeer
We pray for miracles and we expect miracles to happen. So why are we still so in awe when they happen? Perhaps it is the overwhelming, in- your- faceknowledge that God is right there moving heaven and earth and we are His witnesses.
Let me explain . . . Our oldest daughter started having seizures after a reasonably routine surgery last November. Countless doctor visits, rehab stays, and medications upon medications and nothing seemed to help.
Fast forward to this July and our sweet girl boarded a plane to Boston to spend some time with friends and hopefully get an appointment at a prestigious hospital with a very specialized neurologist.
Well, just 45 minutes into the flight from Houston and yes . . . you guessed it, she started having seizures. A flight attendant quickly came to her aid and called for any medical personnel who might be travelling on the flight. There was one doctor and one nurse. The pilot began making arrangements to divert the flight to the nearest airport.
It turned out the flight attendant was a Born-Again Christian whose first instinct was to pray over our daughter and make sure she knew Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Praise God, this daughter definitely does.
Then the flight attendant convinced the pilot not to divert the flight. She explained our daughter was travelling alone and friends were waiting in Boston. If the flight were diverted, our daughter would be in a strange city with no family or friends. So the flight continued onto Boston.
And what about the nurse and the doctor? Apparently, the only reason the nurse was on that particular flight was a last-minutedecisionto attend a conference in Houston. She was on her way back home. And the doctor? Yes . . . also a last-minute planto take his family on vacation before he started a new residency.
Remember the prestigious hospital our daughter was hoping to get into? Well, the ambulance that met the plane took her straight there . . . where no less than five (5) neurologists attended to her. At this writing, our sweet girl has been almost three weeks with no seizures.
I’ve counted six (6) miracles in this flight – the seizure, the flight attendant, the nurse, the doctor, the flight not diverted, the hospital.
He is the one you praise; He is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes. (Deuteronomy 10:21)
Ahhh, yes . . . miracles AREeverywhere!
Becausewith God, all things are possible.(Matthew 19:26
