Throughout my life, I have heard about events when one person’s random decision changed his/her life or even saved their life.
I was going to turn left and head to the store, but I forgot my list. Went back home, and then heard that the store was hit by a tornado. I could have been killed…
…We were walking on the trail when I slipped. Bob helped me up, and then the trail just ahead collapsed. We would have been on it!
Random coincidences? I believe more and more that there are no coincidences, or that things just happen. Events are ordained, and the choices we make determine the outcome.
This is hard to explain. In Isaiah 30:21
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it…’
Throughout my life, this has happened. Once when I was coming out from a store, I decided to take the street to the right where one shop sold pecans instead of going left where I wanted to buy fabric. I would eventually go to both stores. But, by going right, I ran into a friend who was desperate to get home to her dying husband. I drove her to her home.
Another time while I was traveling, I needed to find my daughter who would meet me somewhere, after I called her. My cell phone was almost dead, I was in a foreign country where English was not universally spoken, and I was lost. Deciding to turn left and go to a bus-hub corner, I made my last possible phone call. She answered; she was across the street in a café with red umbrellas. They had decided to have a coffee there spur of the moment.
This seems to happen more often to me, as I have learned to be aware of that ‘voice behind me’.
What about you? Have you ever had an experience like that? What happened?
