No Coincidences

It was not a coincidence that you passed that test. You know the test. The one you didn’t spend any time studying for. Instead of taking out your books on the weekend before your exam, you decided to spend your time hanging out with friends, watching a movie, and just chilling.

It was not a coincidence that you were offered the job that you were not qualified for. You saw the job in the paper or someone mentioned to you that there was an opening, so you applied. When you read the description, you knew that you were missing some of the required years of experience or areas of expertise. Yet, there was something inside of you probing you to apply.

It was not a coincidence that your significant other asked you out on a date or accepted an offer from you. They knew the perfect moment to grab your attention, the perfect time to make their move. They knew just the right things to say to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Whether it was one of these moments or not, there was most certainly that moment when something happened in your life that was amazing and completely out of your control. The moment when you received an answer or response that you didn’t expect. What was that moment for you?

It was not a coincidence that your life has taken the shape it has taken. God planned every moment of your life before you were even born. For Isaiah 49:1 tells us “…Before I was born the Lord called me; from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name.”

When is the last time you stopped to thank you for hand picking you? When is the last time you thanked God for developing your talents, skills, and gifts? When is the last time you thanked God for the many blessings that have been poured over and into you?

I challenge you today to take a moment, or as many as it takes, to celebrate the awesome God that we serve. Take time to celebrate the God who created you in His perfect image. Take time to thank Him for loving you and keeping a hedge of protection around you.

Please share with us: what is one thing you will thank God for?

Who is your Gnat??

The summer is upon us and you know what that means.

Well, sure. It could mean many things.

But for me, it means that gnats will be in the air. Buzzing around my head. Irritating me.

I am sure you are familiar with gnats. They are small two winged flies that resemble mosquito. Let's not even get started with mosquitos. 🙎

As for gnats, they seem to appear out of nowhere. They are always there when you are trying to enjoy the sunshine.

This is sometimes what we experience when we have overbearing individuals in our lives. Usually parents or loved ones. Maybe a supervisor. Sometimes, this can be your accountability partner.

Please don't tell me I am the only person with an overbearing individual in my life? You know the one....
