Miracles in the 21st Century

My maternal grandma’s last name was Sheppard. She lived to be over one hundred years old. My husband’s maternal grandma’s last name was Shepard. She lived to be over one hundred years old. I was close to both grandmas.

I would listen to our grandmothers talk about their younger years. They would explain in reverent awe about the days when the latest inventions were so astounding they were unbelievable, because so contrary to what they knew before. They remembered riding in the first horseless carriage, getting electricity, seeing the first airplane, using the first telephone. All of these miracles knocked their socks off.

Today is different. Miracles are taken for granted because they occur constantly and are familiar. I expect to video/chat with our daughters who live 3000 miles away. I expect nothing less than it taking 9 hours to go visit them. I expect electricity to keep me warm, cool, help me prepare dinner, boot my computer.

I also expect spiritual healing, Christ-like systematic healing.

At the turn of the 20th century, healing and improvement through the power of God was becoming believable. Mary Baker Eddy established a church designed to bring into everyday lives the element of spiritual healing. Unfortunately, the church began petering out the middle of the 20th century but fortunately, the ideal of spiritual healing took off. The miracle of divine healing became familiar, inclusive, global.

There are more books than ever on the market today depicting the naturalness of healing non-intrusively, mindfully, equally, and with compassion. There are groups of people around the world supporting and healing one another by tapping into the law of God and harnessing a healing spirituality. Many doctors and physicians acknowledge a greater power.

I’ve learned not to take for granted this healing. I’ve learned not to assume one healing is real and another is not. Even though I study Christian Science, I’m convinced no religion has a corner on healing.

Healing is healing. It’s natural and gives us hope and impetus to strive for better healing. Healing is happening and the more I acknowledge Christ-like systematic healing, the more I experience it. The end result is experiencing what is considered miracles.

I’ve met a lot of people who have experienced miracles. We may not completely understand what happened, but we will, one day.

From 21st Century Science and Health, Miracle. That which is divinely natural, but must be learned humanly; a phenomenon of Science.”
