Have you ever had a compulsion to do (or not to do) something that then completely changed your life? Have you ever been steered in such an odd direction only to apparently “randomly” experience something?
God has many, many unique ways to influence, guide, protect and lead us in this life. The real trick is to recognize how he works in our life and to submit to his will. Once you do this, and begin to walk down the path he has set for you, life will take many apparently very odd routes. Its only when you fully embrace it that you can truly see His hand working.
The story as to how I met my girlfriend, for example, is beyond the bizarre to say the least. After reaching out to Him, expecting nothing, I experienced a number of very odd “pushes” in what I was doing day to day. Subtle “shoves” in the right direction which, when you sit back and actually analyze what I was doing, would seem very illogical and bordering foolishness.
At the time I didn’t realise that he was guiding me directly to the person who was bearing the torch of faith. He has continued to subtly influence my life, again in some very odd directions, through a series of events that have been happening and are still happening.
My advice on this is ever so simple. Learn to completely let go and trust in God. Truly open your eyes to watch Him work in your life. Let him create that path for you to walk. Trust in the route that you must take to reach the end goal. Don’t be short sighted, look above and over what is in front of you, to the final destination.
