Do you believe in coincidence?
I believe we are exactly where we are supposed to be at just the right time.
Maybe it's for a lesson in humility, or to be used in some other capacity..... to show God's love and mercy at a time needed most for someone else's benefit.
Have you ever found yourself clothes shopping in a place that you rarely shop at for clothing?
Surrounded by people that you don't necessarily hang around with?
You could hear the conversations of the people around you....their needs.
You realize the lack in their wallets, and pockets, and purses.
You become thankful for what you have, and humbled by the lack all around you.
As an elderly woman counts the change in her purse to see if she can afford the shirt she would like to purchase hanging on the rack at the thrift store.....you are aware of her dire situation.
The woman is excited that she has just enough money to pay for the shirt.
If she buys the shirt, she will have no money left in her pocket book.
How long before she gets more money? for the bus, for food, for.....anything?
That's all she had.
When she walked out of the store with her second-hand shirt, she still had the $4.68 in her purse.
God put me in that thrift store at that very moment, for that very purpose......
It wasn't a coincidence....it was His plan.
God's timing is perfect. He takes care of the smallest details to care for His children.
Sometimes He will work on one's pride, putting us on our knees, to reveal what it is to be used to bless a brother or sister....even in the smallest ways.
