Precisely Random...

Sometimes you shop for random things only to realize that all the seemingly random items match perfectly well with something in your wardrobe and they make a perfect ensemble. We have no idea when the fabric is made or designed or how it's cut and sewn... It's sent into the store and as we shop randomly, we sight the outfit and buy it because it's just perfect for us. 
I bought a lovely print dress; a few days later I walked into another shop and as I was walking to the till to pay for a bag, I noticed a pair of shoes and picked it up without thinking twice about the color… When I got home, I realized the shoes were a perfect match for the dress.

A few months later while shopping in some random shop I only went into because I saw a billboard with an ad campaign I liked, I saw a pair of earrings I just couldn’t let go of. I hovered around the earrings, weighing my options, doing a mental calculation, trying to figure out if the price tag was worth the beauty of the jewelry… I ended up picking the earrings, not knowing what in the world I would pair it up with especially as the color was quite weird, but I knew I had to have it.

Days later, I brought out the print dress and did a mental check on what to accessorize it with… and that’s when it hit me that the earrings were perfect for the dress. It was such a match, you’d think they were made for each other and paired together in one shop. Items bought in different shops in different countries, paired together and worked to serve one purpose. You would never believe I bought them separately, oblivious to the fact that they matched.

I just want to remind you that ALL things work together for good for those who love God… God knows what He’s doing with you and He knows why you’re going through what you’re going through. Don’t despair; it’s all working for your good, all the random situations… One day you’ll sit and realize that He truly is the wisest, and you’ll be thankful for certain things you despise now, because you’ll see just how glorious your end is, because He used the situation to create a beautiful masterpiece. Keep trusting Him, keep loving Him, and keep serving Him…
"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28
Right now you can't see it all clearly. But one day it will come into focus and you'll look back and say, "Wow, God! You are amazing! You had it all figured out, all lined up. Your perfect will be done." Joel Osteen

Life isn't just random, you'll find it precisely random, a series of seemingly spontaneous events are really planned by the master builder to be woven together at some point. When you eventually piece the puzzle and write your story, you'll see how beautiful every piece thrown at you makes you the perfect end to a real life ever after.

  2. I absolutely love this. Especially, "Life isn't just random, you'll find it precisely random, a series of seemingly spontaneous events are really planned by the master builder to be woven together at some point."
