How many miracles have you seen in the last week? If you're like most people, just as with most of my life...none. In fact, most people didn't see a miracle in the last year. Saddest of all, most Christians haven't seen a miracle in the last year. The forum on this website with the lowest participation is the miracles forum. People just aren't seeing as many miracles as in times past. Does this mean God is no longer performing miracles? No! All it means is our eyes are somewhere else. Many of us are so focused on politics, church politics and the struggles and cares of life, we wouldn't see a miracle performed in our living room.
God removed me from the typical struggle and placed me in the middle of 20 acres, partially, to open my eyes to Him and His work. Before, I was so distracted with ministry work to see His work. After 11 years in traditional church ministry, I can tell you this is common among pastors. They are so consumed with the little cares of the church organization they have little time to devote to God and the study of his Word. Now, I see many miracles every day. Yesterday, for instance, I was struck by the beauty of the new baby turkeys, several times by the landscape views from our little hill, the beauty of the full moon, by the love of my wife of over 20 years and the gifts He's given me to write, help people and also to do hard physical work.
Let me recommend to you the practice of looking for all the miracles and blessings in your life. If you don't have time to do this, turn off the news or other program and use that time. Miracles are happening all around you. If you stop to notice them and praise God for them, you'll find life in Him is very different from what you had thought. Try it!

I completely agree with your points, and yes most of us hardly take the time to slow down in our lives and often life does pass us by.
In regard to miracles happening, we have found that God still does do such things (as you already know) and have decided to create a new news entity that presents only positive news of what God has been doing in our world.
