Miracles come at a tipping point

Miracles come at a tipping point

DID you experience some situations in your life that changed your perspectives? Did something happen that changed your life forever? Are there some events that gave you the best decision you have ever made in your life?

If there is then it must be your tipping point.

Malcolm Gladwell wrote a book titled The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference. No, this is not a book review. I have not read the book yet, but I have encountered the phrase when someone asked me, “What’s your tipping point?”

So, I learned that a tipping point is that critical moment in your life that works out for you so you will realize something significant in your life.

We may think of the best and the worst, but it is that point that drives us to change and value our life more.

Some would refer to it as something that we have surpassed.

For example, when we are on the brink of death but we have survived and lived up to this day, we take it as a call of God. That we still have a great purpose in life. That we still have a mission to take.

Or we finally said no to a big decision in life because the circumstances made us think so. The decision could have destroyed our plans and ambitions or changed the course of our life. But we realize later that life is always better with the decision and we find ways to make other things happen in our life.

Or we finally change plans and careers or set of “friends” or habits because we think they aren’t effective in our life anymore.

And then we write our story again, this time looking at another outlook with a range that makes us content and happy.

Yes, we write our story. Although for those who believe, God is the author of all and He is in complete control of everything, we still write our story.

That’s the free will given to us. This is our capacity to make decisions and act upon them in our lives. We make things happen when all these are in our control but acknowledge that a Superior Being is up there who can work things out for us.

But when we write our story, are we not depending on deus ex machina? In literature, it is a plot device where a seemingly unsolvable problem in a story is suddenly resolved by an unexpected and unlikely occurrence.

Or do we allow our experience to change us and penetrate our being? Then it becomes our tipping point.

If someone asks you about your tipping point, have some flashbacks and think of moments and situations in your life that changed you and gave you an intelligent action for your life. You may have not realized it but it is your tipping point.

Or you may look at what is about to come. If an event will happen in the future, something that you didn’t see coming, do not be disheartened. It could be God tapping your shoulder and telling you to discern deeper.

Miracles sometimes come at tipping points.
