I Believe Good Things Happen!

“If God had taken away the cancer (like I asked), the surgeon wouldn’t have discovered (and repaired) three other complications no one knew existed.  Now I am cancer-free and free of the other problems.”

I have lived long enough to realize that there are no coincidences in life.  Everything happens for a reason.  The wise people are the ones who can discover purpose and make it work for their benefit.

I sat next to a young lady on a flight to Milwaukee last year who argued that life was a series of coincidences.  It turns out she had to write a speech for her first Toastmasters meeting and was having trouble putting it together.  Was it a coincidence that she sat next to a professional speaker for three hours on that fight?

I don’t think so.

I meet people frequently who contribute to my life and I in turn try to add value to theirs.  If you live your life with purpose and learn to associate every occurrence with that purpose, then you will realize that life is a journey, not a series of coincidences.

Look for opportunities to discover the reason events happened to you and you will be amazed how few times they appear to be mere coincidences.
