What is Coincidence?
The dictionary defines coincidence as a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection. With a synonym, twist of fate.
We walk a path through life and know at the end of our days we would have reached a certain destiny. The path we walked on, took as exactly where we should be.
As we walk on that journey, we get some twists and bumps that will maybe knock us off course for a while. As the synonym says, a twist of fate, or coincidence. Now, my question is. Is this really coincidence?
What if the coincidence is an event or just meeting someone along your path, making you change direction again, to steer you back into the right direction? We might have wandered off course without even realizing it.
As we are beings that has freedom of choice, we make decisions every day. Some are the right choices but some of them are mistakes which will again lead us down the wrong path.
Something will happen to knock us into another direction, and before you know it, the mistakes of the past has been corrected and we are well away on our journey to where we should be.
So, in my point of view, there is no such thing as coincidences, just a twist of fate to lead us back to our journey of life.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I don’t believe in coincidences — life is contrived. Everything is planned to help our souls grow into sensible and beautiful ones
I thought we will be on the same page again, I don’t believe in Coincidences either. Everything will happen exactly as it should.
I really enjoyed this post of coincidences. You are correct in the belief that God uses coincidences to get us on His path for our lives.
I am really glad you enjoyed it.

Thank you, Bradley. I have been pondering on the concept for a while.
