In life there are many coincidences… which some will say “I don’t believe in coincidences”, while others will say, “it was only a coincidence”. Who is right?
Obviously your world view has everything to do with this, and then to micro-manage that world view would make sense. Let me dig in.
God, Universal Intelligence, Higher Power, Energy associated connectivity… all part of what it takes to first move to an idea that there are no coincidences, and all things happen for a reason. So then, if you look at the options, you find that historically God would be the best answer. I mean, seriously, do you think you are someone who walks among you, who just created a new belief about how higher power exists, is correct, over thousands of years of people probing this question? I find that ridiculous.
Honestly, when an individual from our time and age thinks they discovered something about the supernatural that is unique, it makes me question if there is even a glimpse of humility in this person. People 500 or 1000 years ago weren’t dumb. They were brilliant, they simply did not have technology. But we HAVE technology because we have stood on their backs to get where we are. So lets look historically and figure it out… nonetheless, I digress. This is not paramount to the point at hand.
So, we find that there is cause to believe it all happens for a reason.
So our next step would be to micro-manage the world view. Why? Why does it happen? Why did “IT” happen? Does God really care enough about me to have done that? Did He really have the desire to show me this? I don’t think He cares enough about this to become part of it.
I suffer through this a lot. I am in the middle of a project that has been shown God’s blessing multiple times, at huge levels. It has take nearly two years of patiently looking for those moments, and in this patience, doors have opened and closed very specifically… but then I am left with, “Why would God even care about this?”
I think the reality is that God cares about all things that can impact your ability, desire, willingness to positively impact others. I like to talk about David, the David who killed Goliath and who then became the king, and had great blessing, but at times did ridiculously stupid things. I believe, in a very bold fashion, that we are all David waiting to happen. That God didn’t bless him more, but rather David yearned more for blessing. A Man after God’s heart, he went for it, and God found pleasure in this, and chose to give to him greatly. He was an extremely passionate man, singing and dancing to the lord, then in the name of God, being a warrior against those who spoke ill of God. He was blessed because he desired to be, and God rewarded him.
“Sundog… Siesta Key, 4/2/2017“
Here is a question. Every time my wife, and her sister, and her mother have gotten together to spend time together since they lost their father/husband Fred in late December. They have seen a rainbow. Every time. But the crazy thing, is that three of these times they have seen a full rainbow, a circle. In addition, this is how we were blessed the day of his ceremony, outside of his house, looking into the sky, a twin rainbow, side by side.
Easy to call it coincidence. But how coincidental is it? I honestly have found it eerie that we have seen no other rainbow, other than when together with the family in the last three months. A phenomenon that sings to my heart, “He is here, we are joy”.
So I put this out there, because I want nothing more than to inspire greatness. I feel as though my true calling is to inspire you, to trust in you, because of what He has put in You. And the more you can take the small coincidences in life, and add them up to be built up in belief that you are called to incredible greatness, the better able you are to do what you are called to do. Amazing things.
Be well and be blessed!
