"Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God. I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done--"
Romans 15:17-18

As a follower of Jesus Christ, one of the most wonderful experiences I can have is being able to give a testimony about something God has done in my life. Whether it is a story about how He has delivered me from an addiction, healed my body of sickness and disease, or set me free from desires that distracted me from abiding in Him, every adventure glorifies God because it has been His work in me that made it happen.

I have never planned a miracle, but after they have happened, I know that it has been something only He could have done. Many times the manifestation of His power started with a painful, troublesome, or disheartening experience, and simply through faith and belief that He could do something to rectify the situation according to His purpose and plan, an event happened that resolved the problem. Sometimes it happens to me, a family member, or a friend, but the one common factor that always occurs is that God is glorified.
