on miracles (or maybe just the everyday)

“There is rarely room for the transcendent in our lives. If we get sick, we go to a doctor. If we need food, we go to a store and buy it. We have eliminated the need for miracles. If we had enough faith to depend on God like the lilies and the sparrows do, we would see miracles.”

– Shane Claibourne in The Irresistible Revolution

I often live in a way that does not demand miracles. I am always in the mindset of providing God with many options, so that He can choose the best one to work with. This is so counter what Jesus teaches. With faith, you can move mountains… Mountains!!
