A Thousand Miracles

"A thousand miracles... you'll have to wait and see." Those words are part of the lyrics of A Thousand Things by Christa Wells. You can have a listen to it on my playlist on the sidebar of this blog.

I recently came across this song... loved it right away! It was born from a John Piper quote which says: "God is doing a thousand things in everything He does." So true! Even when we don't see or realize... God is weaving our lives and making everything beautiful in His time!

That is why I count grace-gifts! As I continue to hunt for a thousand miracles, my 1,000 gifts list grows by these few more...
