Miracle Monday (God sees Me!)

Good Morning, friends, and welcome back to another Miracle Monday! Today we are hearing from two special ladies in my life, Tavia and Tona. Though their names sound similar, I can assure you, they are not sisters (Lamentations 3:22-24)!

Before we begin, I want to remind of the three questions we ask in every M.M. (Miracle Monday):

  1. Was there ever a time in your life when you didn’t believe in miracles? If so, how did that change?
  2. Do you have a story you can share when you knew God caused a miracle in your life?
  3. How did this miracle change your life?

First we will hear from Tona. Tona lives in Arizona with her husband and six children. She is a homeschooling mom, enjoys all things science, and the outdoors. Here is her story (Psalm 31):

Q. Was there ever a time in your life when you didn’t believe in miracles? If so, how did that change?

A. “I would say yes. I did not become a believer until the age of twenty-six. So anytime before then, I never considered miracles to ever happen. It was just good-luck or coincidences. After becoming a believer, the miracles I had heard about were stories in the Bible. Did I believe them? I would say no because I don’t think I had enough understanding as a new believer. As I have matured in my faith and as a Christian, I can, without a doubt, say miracles do happen. I think my first time to experience this was in having our first child.”

Q. Do you have a story you can share when you knew God caused a miracle in your life?

A. “The most impactful miracle (besides having children) was very recent. It involves a good friend of ours who should have, from all medical standards, died from COVID. God had other plans for him and his wife.

The man’s peace and faith through the whole experience is how God has shown me that He still performs miracles daily. The impact he has made on so many people is amazing. God is still using him as he is still in the recovery process.

Just this past Saturday, we saw our friend and his wife walk into class with their son. That in itself is a miracle. I believe God will have them share their miracle testimony for the rest of their lives.”

Q. How did this miracle change your life?

A. “About the same time when all of this was taking place, I started to hear the Lord speaking to me about my skin cancer treatment options. It was a feeling I could not ignore. When I expressed to Matt (Tona’s husband) that I felt like the Lord was going to show me a miracle by healing me with something He created, Matt encouraged me to proceed and follow the prompting from God.

A day after I started to use the cream, I saw improvement. Then I got confirmation from a friend. She had a dream and a very vivid and specific dream that I was completely healed. She had no idea what I had started or what the Lord was telling me.

About a month ago, Matt came to me and said that he had a dream that I was completely healed. I believe that this was the Lord’s confirmation again and His way to encourage me.

I have completely put my faith and trust in Him and His miraculous healing power to take care of me. I just listen and obey. Now I know without a doubt that the things that go on around me are miracles. I can see them very clearly.”

Wow, what an amazing story! This story once again proves that God is faithful in never forgetting us or our struggles (Psalm 119:67-68). His love will always prevail.

The last lady we will hear from is Tavia. Tavia also lives in Arizona with her husband, and has four children. Tavia’s passions include reading, hanging out with family and friends, and having a good game of cards! Here is her story (John 1:3-4 & Colossians 1:19-17):

Q. Was there ever a time in your life when you didn’t believe in miracles? If so, how did that change?

A. “So, I guess I need to preface with this: I grew up in a church environment that didn’t believe in the miraculous. In fact, I grew up “scared” of the Holy Spirit!”

Q. Do you have a story you can share when you knew God caused a miracle in your life?

A. “When we ended up leaving that church (the church she grew up in), we had started a business and had been letting this church use our building for their services. Mike (my hubby) had been attending there, but I was too scared. It was a very charismatic church…VERY! (haha) I was attending a more “progressive” church of the same denomination we grew up in.

That being said, I was pregnant with Faith (her second child) at the time, and had actually gone into labor about three weeks early. I went to the hospital the day of my baby shower that was being held at the church I attended. I had lots of friends there and sang up front almost every Sunday (I say that so you know that people knew me there).

Faith was born and was taken to the NICU because she was having trouble breathing. None of my friends from my church even called to see if we were okay. Our business partners went to the same charismatic church that Mike was attending, and they called to see how Faith was.

This was a Saturday evening, and that’s when the church met. Mike told our friends that Faith wasn’t doing well and they were very concerned. Church service started around 7:00. Around 7:30, the nurse brought Faith into my room. She said, “It’s the weirdest thing. Her blood oxygenation has been low (in the 70’s and 80’s) all day, but all of a sudden, it shot up to 100% and has stayed there.”

Mike and I looked at each other in surprise!


Then it dawned on me that this was a miracle! We knew that the church was praying for Faith. As we spoke with our friend after church, he said they were indeed praying and asking God to heal Faith at that exact time! That was my first realization that God still does miracles!

Then, years later, I had had fertility issues and several miscarriages. I had two kiddos but knew I wanted another. I was at church, and the pastor was calling people up to be prayed over for healing.

I looked at my friend and asked, “Do you think I should go up?”

She asked me if I had ever been prayed over for healing, and I said no. Mainly because I was scared and because I wasn’t sure if I really believed, even though I had experienced a miracle with Faith. She yelled, “Yes!” I did go up and had people who knew God and His desire to heal, lay their hands on me and pray.

A few weeks later, I was pregnant! I went to church and told my pastor, and he said, “I know!”

Uhh, what?!

I asked him how he knew, and he said, “Because we asked.” Man, that was profound to me, and it shouldn’t have been, since I’d been a believer all my life!

Matt 11:24 ‘Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.’

John 14:13-14 ‘Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.'”

Q. How did this miracle change your life?

A. “This was the beginning of my new relationship with Jesus; my new thoughts of how the Holy Spirit worked. Believing that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are in fact alive and well, accessible to us!”

I love this! It is such a great reminder that we if let go and let God, all things will work out according to His good will, plan, and timing (Psalm 52:9).

Did you notice any common theme between these stories (Genesis 16:13)? If you said the theme of God seeing us, you would be correct. We see how God saw the struggle in Tona’s heart about the healing of her skin cancer. Yet, God, in His faithfulness and all-knowingness, saw exactly what she needed for healing, and His will was accomplished (Isaiah 55:8-12).

In Tavia’s story we see that God knew her desire to have another child and to have intimacy with the Holy Spirit. He heard the cries of her heart, and He delivered all that she could ever want or desire.

God is good, all! I hope you have seen that today (and anytime you read a M.M.). If you, too, are going through a situation that seems daunting, or too big to handle, trust God. Trust Him with all your heart’s desires. He sees you, and He will never abandon or let you down (Job 42:5).

Alyssa (and your Heavenly Father)
