'Divine Providence is a conspiracy of accidents through which God speaks.' ~James Mackey
Do you believe in Divine Providence? Or do you see it as a random act of pure luck that happens to come your way? For each person the answer is personal. If God is a part of your life and even if at times this connection is haphazard or distant, we can still be sure that Divine Providence is never too far away.
The Bible is a collection of books telling us about God's finger in the midst of many different events over a long period of time. The task of faith is to try and understand what God is saying, not just in these events but in our own personal lives and events too. In understanding Divine Providence, God is not a magician. God can't prevent random acts from happening and God doesn't answer every prayer with a yes. Divine Providence assures us that there is something more to life as we know it. It also assures us that somehow in this crazy complex world that we live in, there is meaning, fulfilment and a purpose to everything we do.
