Magic is false. Trickery like “smoke and mirrors.” Miracles are unexplained occurences that are very real indeed to those blessed enough to experience them. I believe that they happen more often than many think but most are not aware of it.
Even though I try not to be superstitious, I am the type that would see “Jesus” in a Jesus shape on my pancake. There’s a lot of that going around and I did see a “king” in a rainbow print that I posted about previously. I’m sure someone else would have just been upset because of the stain.
I also know there are no coincidences or so they say. I’ve lost a lot in my life. Enough to make lesser people completely give up and funny I recently was about to do just that when I came across a book written by someone I once knew many years ago, a well known pastor by the name of David Wilkerson who wrote “The Cross and the Switchblade” that was turned into a movie. Some of you may be familiar with it. I had never before seen the book that got my attention with a jolt, “Have You Felt Like Giving Up Lately” just when I was thinking “I think I’m done here.” He had passed away not that many years ago and I speak of him often and have sent some his books to others for inspiration as well. I actually thought of this find as a sign not to give up as clear as if he would have come back to earth and spoken to me. This is also the magic of being an author. You never know when your words and ideas can actually become a blessing to others. It’s why we are all here after all. It’s not to have the most toys or be the winner or king, it’s to help one another in any way we can.
Oddly enough I come to find out that this pastor, who I truly believe did God’s work while he was here, predicted over 40 years ago, how the church was going to become political and liberalized much as it is now. We finally have our first liberal Pope and there ain’t no such animal. Most are so weak in spirit that they do not recognize a wolf in sheep’s clothing or in this case a liberal puppet in a robe. He predicted they would use the name of Jesus freely but for their own ends not for the purpose of anything Godly.
