God incidence – It’s good to talk!

Seen at UnLtdHome. By Carol Williams, Easter 2006

So, celebrating this Easter tide I was musing over the amount of God incidences in my life over this last short period. I guess many people would call them coincidences. However, I know through very personal experience that God is working in my life all year, not just at Easter. I was reflecting on my way to the airport to meet a friend at 4.30 a.m. I know, consider it an ungodly hour if you like! I was thinking about business and having one of those time out reflective, holiday thinking periods with nothing better to do than watch the amazing moonset at that time in the morning. I think that was what got me thinking about all the God incidences that had occurred relating to my business this year. Just looking at what a wonderful world he created.

So, I arrived at the airport and wandered in about 6.45 ah, great! I thought, just time for a nice cup of coffee, before my friends flight landed. I had been praying about my business on the way up in the car, that God would show me a new direction. Anyway, So there I was in the coffee queue smiling and happy, feeling on top of the world. There was a lady standing next to me, she seemed very ‘present’ and she said, “oh, it’s been quite a morning”. there began a conversation in the queue which was to last for the next hour. She introduced herself by name, asked if she could join me and we had the most delightful hour, she walked me to the barrier while we continued to talk and she stood with me until my friend came through off the plane. She was charming, animated, interesting, lively, had some great stories, a joke and what’s more had a small degree of crossover into my own business. Her name is Claire and she was older than me and I think I would probably have a run for my money to keep up with just how much she does in her life and I have a seven year old to run after.

Anyway, we exchanged emails and I passed her a couple of leaflets which I had with me, always good to take your information with you wherever you go and even at holiday times. I sent Claire an email on my return to say how delightful it was to meet her and that it would be great to keep in touch.

I received a prompt reply, saying that she had met another lady in the airport, same day, who also worked with troubled young people and she had passed one of my leaflets to her and she gave me the other person’s email address saying that she had told her all about me.

I have no idea where this will all lead but I know that it will not be the last of it! More later. It is amazing how God networks people.

What I should also tell you was that before going into the coffee lounge, I stood feeling a bit vacant for a few minutes before walking over to a newstand. Now, I never read newspapers as a rule, too much bad news in them. I found myself walking all round the newstand reading the headlines. As I did, I asked myself “what are you doing here, why are you reading the headlines, you don’t read papers”? Then I walked over to the coffee lounge and stood in the queue. If I had not done that, I would never have met Claire and had the amazing chat and network link that we did. It was an appointment arranged by God, I have those happen all the time and so I say to you all Happy Easter!

He has risen, just as he said. Matthew 28:6

  • Hi Kathie!

    I’m glad I had a chance to check your Blog for updates today. Who knows? Maybe this is another God-incidence….

    I noticed the comment about “troubled youth” and it immediately crossed my mind to give you the following information:

    MercyMinistries.com: branch Australia was officially launched in Sydney in the spring of 2000. Mark and Darlene Zschech of Hillsong Church serve as Executive Directors and have helped create a beautiful Mercy Ministries’ home ‘down under’ for young girls to receive the help and healing that they need. The home is now open and welcoming girls from all across Australia.

    I’m not sure what angle you want to tackle in this area, but this organization could be a great networking source for info, etc.

    Good Luck!
    Stay Beautifull & Blessed!

    Thanks Sophie, I am awre of the ministry and my previous church was considering linking in at one stage. They currently run the ARC (Action Recovery Centre) House for men up to age 35 which is a 6 month program to get them back into mainstream life.

    My husband’s nephew’s wife is involved with a similar ministry in Adelaide.
