Hidden Hand

We are all seated around the quintessential poker game of life, and God is the dealer.  He doesn't control the card distribution, but he knows what each player has.  The winner is not the best hand but the one who makes the best hand relative to his initial one.

But what would you do if you got a very bad hand?  Would you curse the dealer?  We must do what we must to improve out lot, and not lose any hope, no matter how hopeless.  We have to look for that one chess move to extricate ourselves.

Before anyone gets so depressed from profound self-pity, it might be appropriate to watch Nick Vujicic's video above.  With this backdrop, all these troubles seem insignificant!  His smile and humor are so contagious you might suppose he's normal.

As Christians, we believe miracles do happen everyday.  If we just open our eyes, such are evident, from the subtle to the spectacular and inexplicable!  While we may be waiting for that rarely-granted prayed-for miracle, we should constantly thank the almighty for all graces and blessings that come.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things (1 Corinthians 13.7 RSV).
