While some events we go through in life may take us to breaking point, they are actually part of God’s grand plan for us, and therefore they are blessings. I know that’s hard to believe given some of the things we are faced with in life, but I am sure that given time, when you look back on these events, you will realise they have made you who you are today, and therefore, they are blessings.

So the next time you’re facing a difficult or challenging situation, remember you are experiencing a blessing from God, which you will learn from, and which will mould both your future and you!

 

 

Do you think things happen for a reason, or do things just happen?

I believe everything that happens, happens for a reason, and ultimately everything that’s happened to me in my lifetime to-date, has made me into the person I am today. I am therefore not the same person I was 5 years ago, in the same way, 6 years ago I wasn’t the person I was 10 years before that, all because life events have taught me life lessons, and changed me into who I am today.

All sacrifice and suffering is redemptive. It is used to either teach the individual or to help others. Nothing is by chance ~ A.J. Russell

Personally I’m very glad I’m not the person I was a few years ago, even if it has meant I’ve had to learn some life lessons the hard way. How about you?

no coincidences

Have you ever wondered why coincidences seem to happen? Why a specific piece of music that means so much to you, happened to come on the radio or your ipod, just when you need a lift; Why a specific person who always knows how to cheer your heart, calls or visits you just when you’re needing a lift; Why the preacher at church happens to talk on a subject that is relevant to you just at that time…

I could go on with lots of other coincidences, but hopefully you see where I’m going with this – That there aren’t really any coincidences when it comes to the important things in life, because all things happens because God has planned them…that piece of music just when you needed it; that friend who visits; the message from the preacher.

So the next time you’re tempted to say “that’s a coincidence”, remember it’s no coincidence, it all part of God’s plan.

 

 

Is it a coincidence when you need someone to talk to and your best friend phones you?

Is it a coincidence when everything is getting on top of you and someone offers to help you out?

Is it a coincidence when something you hoped for doesn’t happen but then something even better happens?

Is it a coincidence that when you’re in need of direction, God shows you the way?

None of these things are actually coincidences, they are in fact all incidences orchestrated by God.

 

‎A few days ago, I came across the following quote by Archbishop William Temple:

You can call it coincidence if you like but all I know is that when I pray, coincidences happen and when I don’t, they don’t!

If you don’t belive in the existence of God I’m sure you’ll say that whatever happens is just a coincidence, no matter how unlikely these events are to happen together. If however if you’re like me and believe in God, I’m sure like me, you’ll agree with what the Archbishop said.

I truly believe all things happen for a reason, and that reason is God. Coincidences don’t just happen by accident, they happen because God has a reason for them happening.

Don’t believe in coincidences, believe in prayer because it really does make things happen!
