There are moments that are described as “happenstances” and others as “coincidences”, but I prefer to see these moments as God moments.
God moments mark the times when the ordinary of our lives is interrupted and interjected with the extraordinary.
God moments are moments that cannot be explained, or they are so perfectly orchestrated they are truly too good to be of man and must therefore be of God.
God moments come at whatever times—like punctuation marks in our lives—to separate the earthly from the heavenly, the mundane from the remarkable, and redirecting our reading of circumstances.
- Like a (.) period: forcing us to stop and acknowledge that the normalcy and routine of our lives have been interrupted by the supernatural. Or,
- Like a (,) comma: causing us to pause in contemplative wonderment at what has just transpired. Other times,
- Like an (!) exclamation: that ha-ha moment when we’re awed into speechlessness or wonderment. And then there are those times it’s
- Like a (?) question mark: compelling us to query the depth and height of God’s love, measured in the magnitude of our capacity to stray in the face of His resolute determination to chase. And finally, God moments are
- Like a (—) dash: betwixt and between the last dollar and an empty cupboard; an unexpected phone call from someone who says “you were on my mind” breaking through a lonely moment; or the simultaneous pairing of the perfect song with the bewilderment of your heart at just the moment you turn on the radio.
God moments happen wherever.
They may be while we are taking a walk, driving on the busy thoroughfares, relaxing, or flying in the boundless skies.
Wherever or whenever God moments occur, one thing is for certain, we are caught off guard.
But no, not so for God. These moments are all part of His design. And, He smiles a smile so big it lights up the circumstances of our lives as it directs or redirects us, and He relishes our astonishment at His interspersing humanity with snippets of the Divine.
