A Life of Miracles (book review)

The lives of Christians in the earliest days of the church were filled with miracles.  And sometimes we hear stories of or experience miracles in our lives today, but it's hard to imagine they can happen to us.  We're imperfect followers who don't always like to do what God asks.  Why would He work miracles in our lives?

I won't be one to wonder about the motives of God, but I do know that everyday, normal Christians struggling with their day to day lives can experience miracles.

Recently I read A Life of Miracles by Don Schulze.  The entire book was telling about his journey with Christ and his wife and children.  They spent their lives swinging back and forth on a pendulum, following God's instruction to the letter some days, and looking more like Abraham, Sarai, and Hagar other days.  But the common theme is that God worked in their circumstances.

They saw physical healings.  They had received mortgage payments from near strangers when they were about to be foreclosed.  They were gifted with money in unusual circumstances right when they needed it.

One of my favorite stories from the book is when they had no more money to carry them through the pay period and Don, who was a salesman at the time, had to meet a client for a sales presentation.  I won't tell his story for him, but by the end of his appointment with the client, he had a fifty dollar check in his wallet that was meant for him, not the company, and the promise of a probable purchase in the future.

The whole book is filled with God's actions and God's voice.  It was an incredibly encouraging read, and the fact that Don and Leia struggled mentally and spiritually through these experiences was a reminder that we don't need to be perfect to be cared for by God or to further His kingdom.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House in exchange for my review.
