Default Amazing coincidences

We all experience lots of coincidences, I suppose, but I wonder if readers feel sometimes, as I do, that some (even many) of the coincidences we experience are so incredible that they seem very likely to be expressing or reminding of us of something very important, maybe even supernatural or Divine.
I propose to share one of my recent coincidences, and to ask readers to comment on their own experiences of coincidences, and their interpretation, or comment on mine, or even comment on both.
Today I was writing a book review on Fr Ronald Walls' book, Christ Who Lives in Me. After I said it was an enjoyable series of meditations on the Rosary, I wrote I was disappointed that I found only two very short comments on the concept of Jesus in us, and I had picked up the book in large part because I have recently found several other books on this subject.
At this point I stopped writing, distracted by something I cannot remember, but sometime in the next hour or so, before I added anything further to my review, I more or less randomly, I think, stumbled upon a third reference in the book to Jesus within (or sometimes translated in Greek "among") us. Could I have been getting "extra" help?

Default Re: Amazing coincidences

Hi eschator,

I've probably had some coincidences happen in the past, but cannot recall very much. There was one not so long ago. On my way home, i suddenly remembered words from the Prodigal Son which had me thinking what i have been doing in the past. Did i waste my inheritance, did i pursue unprofitable or worldly things, was i suffering as the son who had to eat what the swines were eating and decided he must as well ask forgiveness from his father and be a cared-for servant in his household, than having nothing to eat and wear where he was then?

When i got home, i quickly turned on the (Christian) radio as i often do, and lo, a preacher was speaking on Luke 15. It was just part of his msg i heard, but he assured i hadnt squandered my inheritance, i never really pursued worldly things, for God's word was always more important when i thought of a possible job, business or leisure activity, etc. And i was not eating swine food, but at times disciples of Christ must suffer or go thru various kinds of trials...and it's alright.

We may say that is coincidence, but i see it only as God working and speaking in my life there and then, when i needed reassurance that i might have slipped or made mistakes in the past, but on the right track and to keep walking in straight paths, even as i ask for forgiveness for any shortcomings along the way.

Amazing that was our Gospel reading last weekend. I use coincidence because I am reluctant to say inspiration or revelation...mostly from humility, I hope. I think they happen once a week or more.
