When People From the Bible Did the Unthinkable, They Experienced the Miraculous

When Mia K. Wright read the Bible, she noticed a pattern: The people who experienced the extraordinary did unordinary things. In her book Unthinkable (March 6, 2018) Wright challenges readers to push past the limitations placed on them by society, culture and themselves to reach their next level with God.

Raised in a single-parent home on the wrong side of town, Wright never thought she would beat the odds. Yet somehow God blessed her with a life she never would have thought possible. She graduated college with a degree in biology, thrived in a career in the corporate and nonprofit sectors, obtained a Master of  Divinity and now preaches around the world.

"God did the unthinkable in my life when I decided not to settle for life as I had known it. I wanted more out of life than I had seen growing up, and as I placed my desire before God, He showed me how to break out of poverty and a self-limiting mindset. He began to open my eyes to what He had in store for me, and His plans were beyond what I would have dreamed," Wright says.

Joni Lamb, host of Joni Table Talk on Daystar Television Network, says, "Mia Wright challenges us to understand that although we may view ourselves as ordinary, God's view is quite different. She encourages us to do the unthinkable and walk outside the boundaries of ordinary and join hands with our Creator to do the extraordinary."

Wright takes inspiration from the godly examples of individuals in the Bible, among them Abigail, Rahab and the daughters of Zelophehad. These individuals often did what others dared not do, taking bold steps of faith and at times defying cultural norms.

Mary should have been in the kitchen with Martha, but she sat at the feet of Jesus. When Naomi commanded her daughters-in-law to go back home, Ruth vowed to stay with her and thus played a central role in God's plan to bring Jesus into the world. These biblical figures trusted in God and truly believed that only through Him are all things possible.

"I believe that embedded in the spirit and psyche of every individual is the desire to break out, to improve and be better. The problem is many of us don't know where we need to be or how to get there. In order to experience the change you seek, you may just have to do the unthinkable," Wright says.
