Great stories everyone!  I think it interesting that it seems the younger and simpler in heart you are the more the miracles can be 'in our face' as it looks like that God dont care about the policy of being not too obvious.

You are what you choose yourself to be and you will find out who you are with what you do

Irish,

      I loved your story, it made my eyes teary.

      I'd like to share with you what I thought was a miracle, at least it saved me from something really awful about to happen.

        About 2 years ago I was in Italy with a friend of mine who lived there for 6 months.  I relied on her to do all of the communication since I didn't speak Italian.  One night we went out with two german guys for dinner...well, my friend got herself dreadfully drunk off only a few drinks, and later, in their car, she was literally attacking (kissing, grabbing) the guy driving from the back seat.  The car was swerving because he was reaching around to kiss her.  I was so scared because I had no idea where we were, she knew the way back to hotel we were in but was too drunk, and these two guys were taking us somewhere else.  

      I had no idea what to do.  The driver pulled off the side of the road and stopped so they could do their kissing thing.  We didn't even know these guys, and he was trying to have sex with her in the front seat, taking advantage of her being drunk.

    Then the other guy tries to pull the moves on me, and the whole time I'm terrified that we're going to be raped, and taken somewhere other than our hotel.  So, during this time, I'm terrified, praying "God, please help me, please do something."  Keep in the mind that it was like 2 am in the morning, and there was absolutely no one out.  There was no one to yell to for help.  After I prayed my heart out, I felt a sudden calm from nowhere.  A split second after I felt that, a police car pulled up the street ahead of us and stopped at a sign.  It gave me the perfect chance to run over there.  They escorted us back safely to our hotel.

      The chances of the police showing up right when they did, where they did right after I asked for help, was the only thing that probably saved both of us from getting raped, or maybe even worse.  I was absolutely amazed at the sudden calm right before they showed up, like God was letting me know that it was going to be okay.  I never doubted that God could intervene after that.

      When I go traveling again, Italy probablty won't be my first choice with that friend no.gif


     Best wishes,  

    Fly

Hi flyinghigh23
That just shows you that miracles, even small happen not only when you don't expect them but when you need them the most. Many will say that it was just coincidents that the police car showed up. But many have also felt that calming feeling you described just before. It is almost as if time slows down for just a moment so that reality can catch up to the situation.
Thank you for sharing.

to tell my story is a hard one and perhaps you won't take into consideration what it means to me to tell it.
here goes: I was breaking up with a boyfriend and he gave me a "token" of himself. i was so confused at the time and deeply hurting so i took what he gave me. i knew it was a drug but i had done it for so long that at this point i just wanted peace.
anyhow i took it and apparently he gave it to me to shut me up to kill me. he was a biker (H.A). once you know their secrets it seems you are a problem to them so i guess this was his way of shutting me up. anyhow, i was in a comma. when i woke up i was fine. this surprised everyone. i don't remember anything in the comma so i cant stipulate what occurs. apparently they told my mother to say goodbye to me though. i guess that means i was close to death. but i woke up and all i remember is me pulling all the cords from me and walking out.
After that i am fine. I just finished my pre-health science and  am going into my bachelor of science in nursing.
it turned out to be a blessing.
i feel so trashy in telling this but i have turned my life around for the better. this was my miracle. this is what also has helped me to belive and be a better person. sad.gif

Reason is a choice. Wishes and whims are not facts, nor are they a means to discovering them. Reason is our only way of grasping reality; it is our basic tool of survival. We are free to evade the effort of thinking, to reject reason, but we are not free to avoid the penalty of the abyss we refuse to see.

Thanks Irish, for this post.  Reading these posts has been a great encouragement to me.

I'd like to share two stories that have happened in my life that I consider miracles.  The first one happened when I was about 8 or 9 years old.  I was playing in my backyard with my brother when the tennis ball we were playing with went on the roof of the granny flat out back.  My brother went inside since all the fun was over.  I, on the other hand didn't want the fun to end so I went to the shed and got our father's ladder.  After struggling with it, I eventually leaned it against the side of the flat.  To cut a long story short I climbed the ladder and got the ball.  On my way down I heard my Dad yell and come running (and my dad has a bad back, it's almost impossible for him to do that).  As I got down he asked me "where's you're brother".  My brother then walked out of the house and towards us.  Dad was speechless.  He told me he saw someone standing at the base of the ladder holding it steady and assumed it was my brother.  We still don't know who it was, or even if there was someone, or if it was an angel or what.  To make things stranger, the ladder fell (or at least slid part of the way down the wall) just as he went to pack it away.

The second story happened to me when I was 18.  It was late at night and I was walking home from my friends house.  It's about a 15 or 20 minute walk, and about half way home I noticed that I was a lot more exhausted than I should be.  It was only then that I realised I had been running home.  I stopped for a little breather, but almost as if my body was working on auto-pilot it started walking fast without my even knowing.  I then ran the rest of the way, actually wishing I could stop for a break.  Anyway, I got to my drive-way at almost exactly the same time as a group of five unsavoury looking men walked past my house.  I don't know if anything would have happened if I didn't get home when I did, but I thank God that I never got to find out.

I cannot believe that there was not a reason for these events.

Once again, thanks Irish.  I hope this thread continues in such a positive manner.

If miracles are divine intervention that violate laws and can not be explained they are of gods will right. And most of them are happy things right.

But what is a supernatural event was not a happy one but one of a unfortunate consequences, would you all say it was gods will?

Hi sprinkles
Your story is a very important one to always remember for whatever you believe in you were given a second chance at life. It seems to have affected you in a positive and constructive way. Someday perhaps you will have some recollection of the coma state and understand what changed inside of you. But even if that does not happen it goes to show that Miracles in your life don't require your conscious acknowledgement.

Hi Bobbie_McRobbie
Thanks for the positive feedback. But the credit should go to all of YOU who chose to participate and even to those who chose NOT too!
The purpose is in sharing life altering experiences whether you believe them to be miracles or not. As long as we don’t try to over analyze what they mean to others and just take them as encouragement I think this can remain a positive thread. I would encourage those that do not believe in such things to start a thread were people can argue the existence and experiences in a critical manner if the need is there!
Your story brought back a memory, when I was about 7 years old I was playing with my two brothers in the back yard. I think it was tag or a game like it. I was a hyper kid, liked sugar way to much wacko.gif . I was hiding on the roof of the back shed when I saw my older brother scamper up the drain pipe about to get me. Without thinking I ran right of the edge of the building about 12 foot high and landed safely on my feet and kept running not even giving it a second thought. It wasn’t until later I realized how dumb a move that was, thanks to my brother; He described me as falling from the shed in slow motion.

All the best
Irish

My intuition tells me different Super Pancake, I think we all experience minor miracles as is evident in the fact we have not killed ourselves yet! blush.gif
Like my previous story of running of the back shed I would have not even notice if it was not for my big bro’s comments.
Forgive me for now for not answering your other question as again I don’t want to judge these stories only to read them.
Thanks
Irish

Well thats your interpretation of why I'm alive and a baseless one because you don't know me. Anyway I do believe God exist I don't believe he has a plan for us or even care what happens to us. I think he just created just because he could create. However nothing is absolute so you don't need to mind my beliefs. But I just wanted to point out because there is no purpose I find my own purpose to live, whether I reach my goal or not I tried and thats enough for me to live on even if it is a short lifetime, a long lifetime or a faded glory and legend that lives on forever. I'm not going to sell myself short for an imaginary white guy with long white beard even if he did create me or our existence. My life is my life!

Miracle or not I don't mean to be ungrateful for life, if it is an accident or destiny. Who knows I doubt anybody does.

Hi Irish, About 3 years ago when my daughter was about 4 months old my friend and I were coming back from town. We were driving across the highway and my car stopped. It wouldn't crank. A school bus was coming straight for us. We were just trying so hard to get it to crank. But then all of a sudden the car just moved and we got it to crank. We then pulled over shaken to death. Praying to God. Thanking that he had spared our lives. About a week later my car was blown up(the motor) we had to buy a brand new motor. We really lucked out.

Even as a Christian and a believer of miracles I often cringe when I here the word faith healer. I will relate a story I personally know to be true.
I will call her Jane, I knew her for about 5 years prier. Jane was confined to a wheelchair since a young child born with cerebral Palsy. At the age of about twenty I used to transfer her from her wheelchair to my car to take her to college twice a week. One morning I went to pick her up at her door and she was standing by herself at the door with a big smirk on her face. I was quite taken aback and asked her what has happened? She explained that she had seen a faith healer a couple of days ago and felt so good she did not want to sit for the rest of her life, laughing.
Although at that point she was extremely week duo in part to muscle atrophie she required an arm to hang on too. Leading her to the car is when I noticed something really strange, She was able to walk but the energy from her I felt was not muscular but like a form of electricity was moving her.
Her whole life slowly changed for her and the last I heard she had married and was working a regular 9 to 5 job with no relapse of her condition.

I don't know if this can be considered a miracle, but it did affect me in a spiritual way.

I was 17 at the time and my Dad had just bought me my first car. It was during the summer and my boyfriends sister, (age 16), my sister,(age 14), and I decided to take a drive to the nearest convenient store which was about 5 miles away (we lived in the country). I drove to the store, we got what we wanted and then on our way back to the car my BF's sister suggested that she drive, as I was obviously a little nervous of this,(she had no license), she quieted my doubts with the admonition that she had been driving for at least a year because her Mom let her drive her car for practice and so she knew how to drive and I believed her. Well, I said, ok, and we proceeded to head back home when we came to the road that we needed to take a right turn on, and this was a very dangerous road because it was nothing but sharp curves and steep hills (the kind you can do jumps on). After she made the right turn she had gotton too far over to the right and into the gravel, the next thing I remember was looking down at her feet and saw that she had one foot on the excellerator or gas peddle and the other on the brake and this caused the car to start losing traction. There was a curve just after this point at which she had gotten to when the car started to spin uncontrolably, (the police said that they had estimated the spin had gotten up to 92 miles an hour), and then I remember being slammed into the dashboard (I was sitting in the middle), before the car started to roll on its' side and slamming up against a tree.

The next thing I remember is that I,(or my soul/spirit rather), was hovering above my head and I was looking at my sister and my bf's sister and "knew" that everthing was alright and then suddenly I was all the way back into my body and fully conscience. I remembered everything about that moment. There was a beautiful "radiant white light", (pure white), completely surounding all three of us and with this was a complete sense of peace and love, (no fear whatsoever), and most notibly was the "LOVE", in which I cannot honestly find words to justify.

My sister's pelvic bone had been broken and she spent time in the hospital a few days. As for me and the other girl, we were left with some bumps, bruises and sore muscles. The car itself was completely totaled and taken to the nearest junk yard.

Well, as I said before, I don't know if this can be classified as a real miracle or not but it was definately an "experience" that had changed my way of thinking and feelings about God. This experience gave me a "knowing" that God IS, and that it is only we ourselves that "think" otherwise. Now I can't seem to seek Him out enough and my inner desire to know Him is ever bringing me closer, here a little, there a little but always closer.

Blessings to All,

Curiousofall

I certainly believe that you not only experienced a miracle but two of them. The first being the miraculous fact that you all survived such a horrendous accident. And the second one being the awareness of the moment and the spiritual enlightenment that was the result of it. Most people are unaware of their surroundings during such trauma.
I am curious to know if you experienced any time distortion (slowing up or speeding up) during the experience. From what I understand this is a common phenomenon in these cases.
Keep growing and learning and question everything.
