Miracle Workers

February 1, 2012

By Beth Bitler

It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed by all the problems in the world. How many times have you heard someone say, “Why doesn’t somebody do something about that?” Or the words come out of your own mouth, as they have mine. We hear about bad news and we whisper, “It’ll take a miracle to fix that.” And we wait and wait and wait for someone else to be the miracle. We want someone else to act. But miracles aren’t what other people do. They’re what each of us does. They’re what happens when ordinary people take extraordinary action. To be a miracle doesn’t mean you have to tackle problems across the globe. It means making a difference in your own living room, cubicle, neighborhood, community. We can’t do everything, and what we can do, we can’t do perfectly, but that’s ok. All we need to do is make a beginning, right here, right now. If we just do that, it will make all the difference in the world.

If you want to see a miracle, be the miracle.
