I am amazed at the serendipity I see on the internet at times. Because I posted about a medical issue, I have had people from all over the country pray for me. They could have read and said a short prayer, but I am talking about people who had it on their heart to actually spend time interceding on my behalf on a regular basis.
Another case in point is that there are some relationships with people that found me on MySpace. Some have come to our church to visit and some I have even had a chance to build a friendship with here in town. Others I had chance to bless and be blessed by. One guy worked for me as a handyman for a few days. All the encounters had something to do with God orchestrating something in it.
So, blogging and MySpace may have some reason for being bad to some folks. But, I have found that wherever there are people and people who have the life of Jesus in them, serendipity is the norm. People ship computers to help a virtual friend on a mission trip. People donate money for adoption. Missionary mom and worship leader’s mom pray for me.
My explanation is that I believe little miracles like the ones mentioned above are the norm–we just miss them most of the time. Only with Christ in our lives could this happen in a place that is so dark and profane.
Any serendipitous moments with blogging for you out there?
