Message from the Q:

Spoiler Alert…

In Disney’s Encanto, the main character Mirabel expresses her longing to be like her family in having a special gift, or superpower if you’re not familiar with the story. By having this gift, she will be able to contribute to her family’s success in their community. 

As the film progresses, she eventually realizes she always had a gift and that gift was the ability to keep her family together, sure, it’s not a flashy gift like super strength or making plants grow like her sisters, but the gift of connection. Her character traits of being patient, steadfast, and steady ultimately helped bound her family together and helped her family grow as individuals… She was unaware she possessed this incredible gift. In the ballad “Waiting on a Miracle,” Mirabel sings:

I would heal what’s broken

Show this family something new

Who I am inside, so what can I do?

I’m sick of waiting on a miracle, so here I go

I am ready, come on, I’m ready

I’ve been patient, and steadfast, and steady

Bless me now as you blessed us all those years ago

When you gave us a miracle

Am I too late for a miracle?

I’m bringing this up today because I feel this is a gentle reminder that we all may be “waiting on that miracle… waiting on that moment in life…” 

But realize that YOU are that miracle. YOU are that moment in everything YOU do. 

SO keep doing it… your experiences in life will help shape your path, your journey. So, stay patient, steadfast, and steady and you will realize you are doing GREAT in life. 

I challenge you all to go out today and reflect on the experiences in life that helped you get to where you’re at today… Career change? New relationship? F3? And think about how your experiences helped OTHER individuals GROW. 

Because that is YOUR gift… We are all that miracle. 

-Othellooo

Maccers led us in a closing prayer! Thank you, brother!
