Some people may believe in god some may not, I do. Since I have been a baby I have been Christian. I have been and always will go to church on Sundays, and love God. I believe in the holy bible, and that God exists and created everything, along with making miracles occur.

I have experienced a miracle myself. In the fourth grade I started to have horrible headaches. For two weeks I slept only every five hours my mom would wake me up and feed me, none of this I remembered. Towels or blankets had to cover the windows and block out all light these headaches were terrible I even had to go to the hospital at least ten times and they had no idea why I had bad headaches. It was kind of like a mystery diagnosis, but of course I didn’t get on that show. The doctors had absolutely no idea what was wrong and didn’t know if I would get better. Then, suddenly about a week later the headaches were gone! It’s almost as if they disappeared.

Another miracle I have experienced is seeing someone be blind, then being prayed for and being able to see without any medical help at all. So here is what happened, the pastor was praying to have the blindness be lifted, she opened her eyes and she could see. It was truly amazing! I could not believe what had happened.

A crazy miracle is my grandpa had a heart attack and almost died. He had no pulse for about twenty seconds. But, they brought him back to life. Also is on, Blake, was at a truck stop because he is a truck driver. At the truck stop he was disconnecting wires and a sixteen inch bar fell on his head and you can guess it knocked him out. When he woke up he felt his head and it was gushing blood! The cut was six inches across his head, he had to get stitches.

The last miracle I know about, and recently saw is my dad got a sharp, metal nail in his eye. He was working alone on my Uncle Jesse’s basement. He shot a nail into the concrete and messed up. As he was pulling it out it came back and the nail hit him in the eye. My dad was able to make it to the driveway after he made the call to nine one one. Once he got to the driveway he fell to the ground, right at that moment my uncle Jesse pulled into the driveway, he could here the sirens. During the first week or two it was bad, but now, thanks to God, his eye is recovering nicely with no pain.

I know I am only a middle school student, and I am not an expert in explaining miracles or know everything about the bible but, I am sure it will be a big part of my life. So, the next time you doubt God, remember this: God loves you and is the only God, he creates great things. Also, if you doubt a miracle remember, “All things are possible with God” Mark 10:27.
