I have been praying for a miracle in my life for a long time. I was sick of the blame, guilt, anger, and judgement surrounding me so I gave up. I surrendered completely to the Holy Spirit.
I found my space and said “Lord, Here I Am” and I surrendered. I found that He wanted me to live in happiness. I created space for Him in my life and we danced together, we ran, we felt the earth under our feet and laughed openly together. I will never forget that day.
Ever since, I have been waiting, WAITING, for a miracle. I thought that it would come to me, that He would show me the way, my next step. Yesterday, however, I learnt differently.
I opened my emails and found an unread one that intrigued me so I opened it. I learnt that “A MIRACLE IS A CHANGE OF MIND.” (A Course in Miracles); “YOU are the CENTER from which everything happens”.
This got me thinking – maybe God is trying to tell me something. I cannot wait any longer, my miracle is me.
So I sat down and got out my visual diary and my oil pastels. I prayed that He show me what he wants me to see, I told Him that this drawing was for Him, and I put pastel to paper.
God put an image in my mind of a woman and this is where I started. The picture on this page is where I finished.
Not long after I finished I was talking to a friend of mine and I happened to mention that I had just finished a drawing. Naturally, he asked to have a look and so I showed him.
He said to me “it seems like this is giving the message that in darkness there is always a light”.
And so it goes – my miracle. Thank you Lord :).
This image is of a woman surrounded in darkness, in chaos, confusion, suffering. She is reminded that “even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is a light to you” (Psalm 139: 11-12). God is encouraging her to step into His light and trust in Him – in darkness there is always a light.
