No matter how much we hear of the power of good, seeing is believing.  Some of the most inspiring demonstrations of that are stories and instances where someone persevered and rose above their critics and/or setbacks to achieve greatness. While we shouldn't rely on such proof to believe in a higher goodness, it's really awesome when something happens that inspires us to keep going.  

Experience the power of believing 

I am not a "believer".  That's right.  I'm not a natural believer.  I'm skeptical of most things and people that come my way.  I am always looking for the negative, the angle or the overall probability and fact.  It makes most things in my life a matter of analysis.  Boring. 

However, over the years I have been incredibly impressed by the wonderous things that happened and people I have met that have debunked my pessimistic side.  In being skeptical, yet open-minded, I find I am perhaps more versed than the average believer to analyze the improbable, the impossible and/or the miracles that occur in our lifetime.

Why?  Because, when you analyze things so carefully, like I do, and come across factual occurrences or stories that make you realize miracles really can happen, it's rather unbiased proof that despite attempts to wholly explain the universe through disciplined theory, there's so much more to life and our capabilities than we can imagine.  And I'm thankful this is the case.

This proof is demonstrated through awesome events, people and accomplishments that enlighten us and provide us the opportunity to feel secured by what we don't know, rather than what we do. 

Even if some are perhaps not miracles in every sense of the word, they are great enough to inspire and motivate us. It's enough for me; I hope you feel the same!

Here are a few examples that even a skeptic can admit are pretty impressive!

Experience the power to believe in others, in miraculous events and yourself!

Bernadette Soubirous, a young teenage peasant from Lourdes said she saw a lady in the cave of Massabielle a mile outside of town while gathering kindling with a friend and relative.  This was the first of 17 appearances of the "lady" on that same year.  Later this apparition was titled, "Our Lady of Lourdes".  On one occasion, she instructed Bernadette to dig in what seemed to be a small puddle of mud and drink the water from within.  As Bernadette dug, a large spring appeared known as a source of water in the grotto where millions of people visit every year for miraculous cures.  The Lourdes Medical Bureau has declared 68 cases of inexplicable cures.  The bureau has been very selective in it's acceptance of "miraculous cures" as thousands have been tested.
