Too Humble to Believe in Miracles?

“‘Miracles aren’t for today,’” complained the Sadducee.

“To say they are is to deny God’s holy sovereignty.

If it’s God’s will that we be ill, then miserable we’ll be.

And don’t you dare compare me to some hard-nosed Pharisee!”

 

“They are too wise in their own eyes, and far too proud for me.

They think they can turn stone to bread, which I have yet to see.

I’m sick and tired of their ‘name, claim, blame’ philosophy.

How they can be so haughty is a total mystery.”

 

“To claim it’s still God’s will to heal decries humility.

I’d rather die a cripple than to live self-righteously.

Don’t call me rich. I’d rather glory in my poverty

And waken others to the stench of harsh reality.”

 

“Though I do not possess a Master’s in divinity,

I know what I do not believe. To me that is the key

To living free from guilt and rampant authenticity

And staying safe from what is rumored to be heresy.”

 

“I have a nose for news and can discern false prophecy.

I don’t need to see signs. God’s Word is good enough for me.

Although I do not read it much, I have sincerity.

So, enough of all this ‘health, wealth talk’ and ‘positivity’!”

 

“Though some may call me critical, I think it’s plain to see

We must throw out the baby, from that bath water to be free…”

 

Author: C R Flamingbush

C.R. Flamingbush grew up in Wheaton, Illinois and graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in German and linguistics. After working seven years for the Department of Defense (an easy job), she took on the most difficult challenge in the world: a lifetime career of raising four children. Along the way she developed a passion for writing Christian superhero fantasy. She enjoys humor because it's Biblical (see the second psalm) and she loves to make people laugh - whether through her writings, her art, or just by being herself. Writing fantasy is her way of poking fun at human foibles and all the ridiculous ideas that so easily beset the human race, while at the same time honoring God in every way she can. Flamingbush has been a member of Faithwriters since 2010, and several of her winning contest entries have been published by Fresh Air Press. She likes Fan Story and has been a Narnia fan since the age of ten. In terms of influence, she aspires to be the next C.S. Lewis but has quite a ways to go in that regard. Speed of Sight, a Superhero Adventure, is her first novel. A sequel is in the works.
