Divine Dollars

Today we're sharing a money-related miracle from the pages of the Detroit Branch 1 history. It's simple, but it speaks to how the Lord rewards good desire and that sometimes we need to just ask, remembering that He can provide anything, often in miraculous and immediate ways.

This is an experience given to Brother Antonio Molisani in the early 1920s when the saints of Detroit worked together to construct a church building on Hall and Devine Streets.

It's a Time of Miracles

Written by Brother Rich Nath on Tuesday, 02 December 2014. Posted in Miracles Hits 2455

It's a Time of Miracles

There's a dialogue in a favorite movie of mine from the late '80s that goes something like this:

Character 1: ... you better be right, because it looks like this last one is going to take a miracle.

Character 2: It's Christmas ... It's the time of miracles ...

This came to me as I was thinking about what to write for the blog as we enter the Christmas season. Although miracles take place every day, regardless of the time of year, there is one particular miracle that happened during the holidays when I was child, a miracle that I didn't understand very well until I was older and that had a lasting effect on our family.

Bills, Bills Go Away

Bills, Bills Go Away

Today, we're kicking off our month of money-related Miracle Mondays. Sister Megan Garcia relates this month's first experience.

My husband and I had been fortunate throughout our marriage never to have to live paycheck to paycheck. Money was faithfully put into a savings account, and bills were always paid at least a week before the due date. That was until my husband, our sole provider, unexpectedly lost his job. We immediately cut back where we could and took extra care to buy only necessities and at the lowest price we could find.

Spread the Good Word: Philippians 4:6-7

Today's Good Word comes from Brother George Katsaras, and it is so appropriate considering the holiday. He says, "Happier I am as, I remember these verses when trials come my way!" Thanks so much for sharing, Brother George! Send us your favorite scripture, and we'll feature it in an upcoming Good Word Friday.

Thank God for Fleas

Thank God for Fleas

In honor of Thanksgiving Day tomorrow, we're publishing an excerpt from Corrie Ten Boom's autobiographical book "The Hiding Place." It's a spot-on illustration of what it's like to give thanks in everything (1 Thes. 5:18), even misery. It's kind of long but worth the read.

At this point in the narrative, which takes place during WWII, Corrie and her sister Betsie have arrived at the Ravensbruck concentration camp, where they are assigned to Barracks 28.

We lay back, struggling against the nausea that swept over us from the reeking straw...Suddenly I sat up, striking my head on the cross-slats above. Something had pinched my leg.

"Fleas!" I cried. "Betsie, the place is swarming with them!"

Thankful for Tibby

Thankful for Tibby

Philippians 4:6 "But in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."

When I was a junior in college, I decided I wanted to buy a sports car when I went home over fall break. I figured I was 20, and now was the time to have some fun when driving. I'd upgrade to something more practical in five years when I had a kid — obviously I didn't consult with God on that thought.

Coping with the Death of a Loved One

Coping with the Death of a Loved One

Today's death-related Miracle Monday is the testimony of Sister Betty Alessio, who is no stranger to coping with the loss of loved ones. Today she's sharing some things that brought her comfort and peace.

As I grew up, I faced death of siblings. Some were very tragic and it was hard to accept. When my younger brother was murdered, I was having a terrible time until the Lord started showing me the faces of people who needed an uplift of some kind, and that is when I started helping others. God was helping me along the way to recover from the loss.

The recent death of my husband of 59 years was different. He came down with dementia/Alzheimer's, and I was his caregiver for a few years. One day, he ended up in the hospital, and the doctor told me he needed to be in a facility.

Arming Myself Against Hard Times

Arming Myself Against Hard Times

This week, we've shared a lot of death-related miracles and testimonies on the Blog. We hope they've uplifted you instead of doing the opposite.

It's not fun to think about hard times we've been through, but it's astonishing to see how God takes that suffering and pulls a testimony out of it.

The other day, I read 1 Peter 4:1-2: "Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God."

As the Seasons Turn

As the Seasons Turn

Today, we're featuring another death-related testimony shared by Sister Rosanne Champine.

Although we find comfort in our understanding of God's heavenly reward for those who endure to the end, the heartache we experience when we lose our loved ones cuts deeply and profoundly. This loss is heightened when someone passes on in his or her youth. In our humanity, we sometimes struggle to understand why one is taken home but another is healed or why we have to endure the pain of separation "prematurely."

Death Is as Beautiful as Birth

Written by Sister Paula Hemmings on Tuesday, 18 November 2014. Posted in Miracles Hits 2576

Death Is as Beautiful as Birth

Today, we're sharing another death-related Miracle Monday from Sister Paula Hemmings.

When my father was first diagnosed with cancer, our family felt very optimistic that he would take his treatments and become cancer-free. We remained that way through two years of surgeries, chemo, and radiation treatments. You see, his cancer wasn't supposed to be the type that kills you. It should've remained topical, so we thought, "Dad can do this." However, as he entered into the third year of battling this dreadful disease, real concerns arose.

I won't get into the gruesomeness of the cancer, but eventually the doctors told my siblings and me that there was no more to be done. All treatments stopped, and they were giving him enough painkillers to make him comfortable.

A Serene Smile

Today, we're sharing two death-related Miracle Mondays, one from Brother Michael Zaino and another from Sister Vicki Osheka. Can you spot the link between the two?

Submitted by Brother Michael Zaino

When I was about 10 years old, Brother Tulio Pizzaia, Brother Bob Pizzaia's father, passed away. I had a hard time understanding what death was and what happens after death. In a dream, I saw Brother Tulio in a coffin. We passed by, looking at the body as we normally do at a wake. As I passed by Him, He looked at me and smiled. I woke up and understood that He was in a happier place. I understood that death wasn't the end, and I had peace after the dream.
