A personal signal or message, directly from a higher power, usually, but not always, in the form of a coincidence.” SQuire Rushnell
The tennis player Novak Djokovic recalled in his book Serve to Win when he was a kid and wanted to play tennis and it wasn’t a traditional sport in Serbia “…for the [tennis courts] to be installed across the street where I spent my summers? Some higher power was surely at work”.
Anytime that I read stories like that I remember this book When GOD Winks. It is packed with a lot of stories that are beyond chance or luck. It has three parts:
Part one: Opening your eyes to see the winks,
Part two: Using God winks to enrich your life, and
Part three: Coincidences in all walks of life.
SQuire Rushnell shares anecdotes about him, his friends and people that he interviewed.
I love when people share stories like that. The feeling of being protected and guided is such a relief when I am uncertain of getting into the unknown that change brings. It spikes the faith that I am on the right track as I remember my own experiences as well.
As I can remember, it changed my perspective since I was a kid about what can be called impossible. When I was 10 years old I was interested in the music group of the moment and to me, it was impossible to watch them beyond TV. Possible was to go to my brother’s baseball practice on weekends and this one, in particular, we went to a stadium located inside the only airport nearby. As my brother’s friends were telling me to turn around because the group was there I was refusing to do so and look foolish thinking they were lying to me. It was true! They were there! Watching the practice and waiting for their airplane. So anytime that I think something is impossible I always remember that day and what happened.
