what are the odds?

What are the odds?

What are the odds that my daughter would be behind me at the arrival of a concert more than an hour away? We even left at different timing from completely different locations. Then on the way home after we each did separate things I end up right behind her as I exit the highway towards home.

What are the odds?

I think God delights in having fun with us and this night He sure did. He reminded me He is in the details of our lives and His timing is always perfect. Times like this build trust and remind me of His intimate presence in my life.

God’s perfect timing.

Look for it.

Seek it.

Find it in all you do.

It is there even if a little hidden at times, but God’s timing is always perfect.

It had been a full month. I might even define it as overflowing. I attended 3 weddings and 3 funerals. Sometimes it might be a whole year or more to attend another of either. Yet, in May, there were 3 of each.

I love the number 3. It reminds me of our God’s triune presence* and that His timing is always perfect.

We don’t have to worry about the odds as He is always there to pick up the pieces in His perfect time.

Trust in that. Help others see it is He who is in the details. And look for God’s perfect timing.


In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” Proverbs‬ ‭16:9‬ ‭NIV‬‬

What times have you seen His divine presence prevalent? Pray do tell in the comments. Please and thank you.

*A few posts back I shared a recipe of a cake that has to rest 3 days before consuming which reminds me of Christ’s 3 days in the tomb.

Here’s a link to look back on that entry and do let me know if you make the cake and have the patience to wait the 3 days before trying it:
