Believing for a Miracle

Something huge is getting ready to happen. Something miraculous. I don't know how. I don't know when. But I am completely certain it will. I'm also just as certain that I am supposed to share with you all, and that scares me to no end. Most of the time when God is doing something huge in my life and in the life of my family, publicly I get really quite about it. There's always a part of me that thinks there is no way that I could ever put the sacred into words that would give it the justice it deserves. There's always a part of me that worries about what others will think, what they will say about this thing that is so precious and dear to me. There's always a part of me that listens to the fear that whispers in my ear and tells me that I don't deserve any of this and to keep it to myself. Today, I feel no different. But here's the thing...today, I'm choosing to be different.

Several months ago, the Lord told me that my hair would grow back. He told me to start believing for the miracle. He told me to throw away my wig and to not buy a new one. He told me to believe Him.

Now for those of you who don't know me, I have had alopecia since I was ten years old and have been completely bald for eight years. (To read the back story go here.) For now, other than a few patches of peach fuzz on my head, I'm still basically hairless. For now...but not for long.

I am believing that what the Lord told me is exactly what will happen. My hair will grow back and it will stay back. I will never again be bothered by alopecia. My hair will be long and beautiful. It will be a miracle. It will be a miracle that others will hear about and know that only GOD could do such a thing and many will believe Him because of it.

Again, when will it happen...I don't know. To be honest, I thought before now. How will it happen...I don't know that either, but I still believe Him. I know a miracle is coming! Please understand, I'm believing Him for not just my healing, I'm believing for my MIRACLE!!! It's coming. I won't give up! I refuse!

I am also believing for your miracle. Yes you! The one who is reading this and wondering if it's even possible for God to do such a thing. The one who wonders if God even hears you anymore. The one who has prayed and prayed for the same thing for years and you can't see it and your tired. The one who has a disease that is afflicting your body and you just want some relief, some healing. The one who is silently crying yourself to sleep because everything in your world seems to be falling apart. The one who has been held down by the chains of shame and guilt. The one who can't seem to crawl out of the pit of depression you have been in and you have begun to think that this is your new normal. To the one who has let fear wrap itself around your throat until you can't speak anymore and you just want some hope. You. Precious one, I am believing for YOUR miracle too! Don't give up! It's coming!

I am believing Him. I am believing Him for many miracles, signs, and wonders to come! I am believing for a great move of the Spirit in the midst of the people of God. It will happen. It will happen for the glory of God, through the name of the Son and through the power of the Spirit!!!! In the powerful name of JESUS, it will happen! And when it does, we will dance and sing and celebrate our God who does the IMPOSSIBLE in us, for us, and through us!
