It Was God: Miracles in Modern Times by Wendy Fields
Do miracles still happen or did they only happen during Jesus’ time?
It Was God seeks to open our eyes by explaining that miracles great and small still happen today. Author Wendy Fields shares inspiring true stories that illuminate the hand of God in seemingly unexplainable situations. Miracles are real and illustrated in the inspiring, uplifting stories of extraordinary events as told by people like us. Consider the following:
A tumor shows up on an X-ray and must be removed immediately. The cancer patient goes in for surgery. The surgeon cannot find the tumor. “It just disappeared. I can’t explain it,” he reports. A baby who was thought to be "dead" at birth because she went 8-15 minutes without oxygen has today passed her first birthday and is a walking miracle. A woman deviates from her routine route home “just because.” She reads in the newspaper the following day of the shooting that took place in broad daylight in the middle of the street at the time she would normally have been driving in that precise area.
We catch ourselves saying “What a coincidence,” or “I don’t know how it happened,” or “I guess I just got lucky.” It Was God explains that what we need to understand is when the “unexplainable” happens there really is an explanation—the only answer is that it was God’s will.
Wendy Fields experienced God’s life-changing gift of salvation as a child and is extremely grateful every day that Jesus blesses her and allows her to have a relationship with Him despite all of her faults. Wendy is a wife, mother, daughter, sister, college English professor, and dedicated member of the Hyde Park Baptist Church family. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, Daniel, and their daughter, Elizabeth.
