I have heard most of my life that most things are coincidence. How can people say they believe in God and believe in coincidence? Coincidence, according to Dictionary.com is a striking occurrence of two or more events at one time, apparently by mere chance, accident, luck or fate. If a person believes in God then accidents, luck or fate cannot be valid. I was told thirty-seven years ago that coincidence is an occurrence God chooses to stay anonymous on. I believe that if God is capable of designing, building and running a universe, then God can easily work wonders in my life if I am willing to turn over my free will God blessed me with.
When I turned my will and my life over to the care of God originally, I turned merely my defects over to God. After decades of God removing and helping me to overcome my defective character, my faith increased and I began to slowly turn over my assets. Today I have a deep seeded trust that whatever I turn over to God will improve. God’s has a job description; to bring us our heart’s desire. Our heart’s desire is God’s desire for us. To allow God to bring us our heart’s desire we must first relinquish our will. If I hold on to any idea of coincidence I have not given God all my faith.
I begin everyday with mediation and prayer in an attempt to surrender coincidence to God’s plan. The only part of the universe God can’t control is the part where we were given free will and refuse to partner with God for our ultimate potential. I couldn’t have written a plan for my life that would have been nearly as perfect as my life has turned out and I give all the credit to a life of surrender and not a life of coincidence. I have been blessed with adversity that has shown how powerless I am and how much I need a helping hand from a loving and caring God. If you want to know how to move your life from coincidence remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
