Popcorn Miracles® are true, inspirational stories about extraordinary events in everyday life. These are little "popcorn-sized" reminders of the nearness of God and how He cares about every aspect of your life from the triumphs to the struggles, both large and small.
These stories recount miracles, answered prayers, healings, provisions and other surprises. You may laugh, cry, or remember some of your own similar experiences. They are intended to encourage you, build faith, and help you find God. Some stories are light and fun to read. Others are weighty, like the hard unpopped kernels found at the bottom of every popcorn box.
It was during a Bible study that I, Gail heard the small, inner voice of the Lord say, "Tell the people the great things I have done." This message kept recurring.
"Some day, we'll write a book about it," I thought.
The following verses spoke to our hearts and became the theme of our book:
"Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world" (Isaiah 12:4-5 NIV).
It's important to understand that God did all these things. It's not about us.
Initially, we had a difficult time coming up with a title, but after we sought the Lord, Popcorn Miracles "popped" into Bob's mind. We thought, "Yes, of course, 'popcorn' small as in popcorn shrimp or popcorn chicken." When a kernel of corn pops, it explodes into a light, fluffy, and unique morsel.
It is our desire that this book will show you how much God loves you and how real He is. He understands you in such intricate detail that He even knows the number of hairs on your head. It is His desire for you to have a dynamic and intimate relationship with Him.
