Family Grace
By Shawnelle Eliasen

A Song of Everyday Miracles

Today I’d like to share a video for one of my favorite songs. 

In “Everyday Miracles” Sara Groves sings of how the Lord, the mighty miracle maker, is active and present in our everyday lives. It’s precious to think about how the one who holds all power and glory would be so compassionate to walk with me daily. Revealing himself in tender ways. Strengthening my faith. Sustaining me. Reaching into my life and creating everyday miracles that are personal and powerful. To think of it moves my spirit. To see it floods my heart with gratitude for grace.

Sara’s song expresses this miracle so beautifully.

Oh, how he must love us!

Shawnelle Eliasen and her husband Lonny have been married for twenty-five years. They have five sons and raise their bevy of boys in an old Victorian near the Illinois banks of the Mississippi River. Their sons, Logan, Grant, Samuel, Gabriel, and Isaiah, range in age from twenty-one to six with Shawnelle home teaching the youngest three.

Shawnelle has been writing for six years, contributing regularly to Guideposts magazine, Daily Guideposts devotional and other inspirational publications.  She would say that life with her men moves faithfully, on fast forward.  But it’s her heart’s desire, her passionate prayer, to see God’s goodness and glory in the fullness of her days. She longs to see Him in the unexpected moments, unexpected places, changing the ordinary to extraordinary and bringing quiet, sustaining grace.
