Serendipity, Myspace and Blogging

Photo83I 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?

  1. i know for me, i’ve seen the “serendipity” deal at work with the forty days of prayer for the children thing we’ve been doing with children’s cup. so many of my blogger friends (most of whom i have never met or have spent less than 5 minutes face-to-face with) joined in and even led in prayer in the online prayer gathering (which is itself a blog). we had over 250 people (many of whom were bloggers) sign up to pray with us online.
    the bonding together that happens when you pray with someone translates very well through blogging, i have found.

    blogger serendipity? absolutely.

    whatever you call it, i’m happy it’s real.
