There are no coincidences

Life can seem pretty random.  The big events and the small stuff just kind of colliding together.  Depending on what’s going on, it can be overwhelming. 

If we ever think about all the chaos for a minute (and who has time for that?), we start asking a bunch of “why” questions.  Because if it’s all just busyness… 

Which is why we need to look up from the busyness.  Just a little.  If we do, we’ll see things that start to look like connections, like patterns.  

Maybe they seem like coincidences.  But some of them are just too plain, too clear to be random.  They’re signs.  That there’s more to our lives than just busyness. 

More on this tomorrow.
