No one is where he is by accident, and chance plays no part in God’s plan.
A Course in Miracles
When you pray for something: clarity, guidance, understanding, etc. you are looking for answers and a response, right? I think so! I hope so!
Growing up, I remember my mother constantly saying, "There is no such thing as a coincidence!" At the time, I never questioned, doubted, or even wondered what she meant by this. Now, as an adult I have decided that no, there is in fact no such thing as a coincidence!
God knows. He has a plan. He understands and has paved the way for us and will guide us where He wants us to be, no matter what. All we have to do is be willing to wait, listen, be patient, and continue to pray!
This year, we have been praying about something very specific for our family. The past week or so, it seems that the longer I look, the closer I pay attention, the more open I am to hearing God's answer and not mine...the more I see, the more I hear, and the more I realize!
I know that this is a vague explanation of my realization that there are in fact no coincidences in life. I have my reasons for being vague, but here is one example of what I am talking about and I would love to hear what you think!
3 times I have gotten in the car and a certain song was playing on the radio...one that means so very much to my husband and I. This one song, "Until the Whole Word Hears" by Casting Crowns has played a huge role in our walk through missions and has touched our hearts since our very first trip to Honduras. No, not a coincidence...but a memory being brought back to the forefront of my mind!
Here is the video we made back in 2010!
The past 24 days of 2013 have been extremely eye-opening and we are super-excited to see what God has in store for the rest of the year and years to come!
