“I’ve heard of a coincidence, yet I’ve never seen one”
The quote above, uttered on many an occasion by friend Jim O. is a nice reminder of synchronicity and the Creator’s hand clearly at work in so much of life’s journey.
The last few days have provided such moments of our Creator staying present coupled with the smiles that can come along from such experiences.
- Chris D. recently mentioned a quote from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (page 247): “I am nearer than you dare believe, closer than the air you breathe”
- During blessed time with Mark M. similar ideas came up again, bringing to mind the song Breathe by Michael W. Smith. Take a listen HERE if you have a few minutes.
Two good friends. Two blessed gatherings. Two men allowing the Spirit to move through them in deeper-than-many discussions leading to wonderful conversation about the Creator’s work in-and-through our lives.
Where do you find the Creator at work in your life today (possibly masked as coincidence by some?) The smile of a stranger? The warmth of the sun? A friend’s joyous wager? A child giggling in fun?
ENJOY the air you breathe on this special day, filled with the Spirit!!!
P.S. The song Breathe has been added to our Christian Playbook music site on YouTube HERE. Listening to a few such songs can certainly stir some satisfying smiles…
