Was it fate or was it providence? Considering the question I must admit that often it is easier to throw up my hands and agree with the now famous bumper sticker; S**t happens. The easy way out appeals to me. It strokes my lazy nature and I, like Ellie the cat, just purr with pleasure. Self indulgence. Ah, life is great! Just bring it on in this land of the free and home of the lazy.
Can you not see the active hand of God in the affairs of men today? It is by faith that our eyes are opened to a realm of reality that today has become obscured by clouds of doubt and fear and sometimes just prideful sophistication.
God grant us a child like faith that will allow us to see!
