Coincidence or Godincidence?

What do we say to those one-in-a-million chance events? Is it coincidence or is there something deeper?

One day, when driving along a country road, I decided to drop by the place of a widowed friend who I had not seen in a long time. As she invited me in she asked: "tell me, how did you know it was today?" And I responded in surprise "Today?"

"Yes, today! On this very day six years ago my husband died," she explained. She sure appreciated the company!

Each of us can probably think back to events that defy probability.

The big question is: what it a coincidence or something deeper?

While some may just see these things as 'lucky' coincidences, I believe many of them are 'God – incidences'. Whether we believe it or not, God works in mysterious ways to draw us to Himself. He is not a distant, disinterested spiritual force, instead, God is loving and personal. Take careful note of subtle ways God is trying to get your attention. Do not shrug it off as coincidence – look for God-incidences.
