No Coincidence

Pinned Image

     If you haven't read 'The Hiding Place' by Corrie ten Boom, its a must read. The wisdom she gained as she struggled thru Nazi concentration camp is still inspiring lives today. The quote above tells us how nothing is a coincidence but a part of God's bigger plan.  Have you questioned why you've endured a long sickness or heartache or any hardship?  It's to teach you something and show you your need to lean on His everlasting arms. Have you ever stopped to think of what life would have been like without certain people? The Lord knows who we need to come into our lives or who to let out at just the right times.  Only God knows where our future is headed so let us embrace each experience and person He gives us as a way to learn His desires for us.
 Proverbs 3:6  'in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.'
 Proverbs 4:11 'I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.'


  1. I love that book - it is at the top of my list b/c she went through the fire but her faith just got stronger. Another person I hope to meet one day.

  2. Such a good thing to remember, Angie. The preparation God has made for us as we take this journey is just right for each of us. Sometimes they are painful, but He knows what we need to make us into who He wants us to be.

  3. Many times when I am stuck in traffic or running late, I remind myself that I am just where God has the exact place I am supposed to be at that moment. It might be that He is protecting me from a traffic accident or simply that He is teaching me patience and that I need to trust Him. I do not believe in coincidence, only as I have heard stated before, "God-incidence" if I can just learn the patience part! Love you, Angie....T.
