Five Tips to Recognize and Celebrate Miracles

Inspired by Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Book of Miracles

By Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and LeAnn Thieman

Miracles happen every day to regular people. There are no coincidences. This book shares 101 true stories from experiencing miracles relating to everything from overcoming terminal cancer, to last-minute salvation from financial ruin, to rescues from death, extraordinary connections with deceased loved ones, and the mysterious appearances of "angels" at just the right time. These stories will send a shiver up your spine and give you renewed faith and hope that good things can happen to anyone.

1. Look for signs from Him from above. Patricia Morris shared her story with Lisa Dolensky of the time when she was a young mother at a pediatric hospital with her critically-ill child. She and another mother were sharing worries and encouragement including a verse from Matthew 17:20 (ISV) about having the faith of a mustard seed. Suddenly the woman’s young, healthy son, named Matthew, burst into the room from the kitchen, giving his mother a jar of mustard seed, saying an angel had told him to do so. The mothers went into the kitchen and saw that it was empty. Instead they found a mural of signed and dated handprints of the children who’d been treated there. They knew it wasn’t a coincidence, but a sign from above.

2. Expect the healing power of prayer. The doctor informed Heidi J. Krumenauer’s mother that she had cancer which they would try to remove with surgery; however, she only had five weeks to live. The morning of her mother’s surgery, a friend read Isaiah 4:35 to her over the phone. "Do not fear, for I am with you," the verse said and her mother prayed until it was time for surgery. At a check-up a few days later, her doctor tearfully announced her biopsy test showed "no sign of malignancy or any sign that it was ever there." Miraculously, to their shock and delight, the melanoma was not malignant and the cancer was gone. He said, "If I didn’t believe in miracles before, I certainly do now." It’s been more than thirty years since and Heidi and her family truly believe in the power of prayer and the reality of miracles.

3. Tap into love from beyond. Mary Smith related the story of a grieving grandmother who had just lost her five-year-old granddaughter, Sarah. The woman had been asking God for a sign that her beloved granddaughter was okay. When she received a Thanksgiving dinner package from a local church, it included a card made by a child that depicted a rainbow, Sarah’s favorite thing to draw, and a message that read, "Jesus loves you, and so do I... Love, Sarah."

4. Be His messenger. In World War II, Lynn Worley Kuntz’s father, Henry and other servicemen cherished letters and care packages from home. Even the smallest details his mother shared in letters made him feel connected, like how the barn cat had kittens, his father had trimmed the tree and that she misplaced her wedding ring. Henry was especially homesick one day when he received a care package with his favorite homemade divinity candy. As he bit into a piece, he discovered his mother’s wedding ring! Henry survived the war and personally returned his mother’s ring.

5. Be alert to angels around you. In her story, "Angel in the River," Connie Vagg recalled that it took her 40 years to reveal to her mother that a blue-eyed, blond haired stranger, who no one else had seen, lifted her from the water and saved her from drowning at a family outing when she was seven years old. Many times in her life, Connie also felt that God sent her "guardian angels" to save her just in the nick of time. She felt his presence and heard his voice saying, "Everything will be okay."
