Coincidence or Divine Intervention?

Coincidence or Divine Intervention?

Everyone has there own opinion in regards to the existence of God, but I swear that he was present in my room last night. What happened didn't seem like an accident!

What are the odds?

I haven't slept well for the last few weeks. Work has me emotionally drained and my "defenses" are down to the "bear minimum".

This in turn has left me thinking about everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING.

Divine Intervention?

Last night after I got off of work, I came home and microwaved some dinner. Then I went upstairs to eat. I had every intention of going to bed after I ate, but I was watching an episode of season 2 of lost on DVD. After I had finished eating, I continued to watch the show. Then it happened.

When I watch DVD's I turn on my stereo for a "movie like" experience with surround sound. I was lying in my bed, and all of a sudden my stereo cuts off. You think it's no big deal, but it shut off without me doing anything.

Your probably thinking what does this have to do with the first words in this post.


As it shut off, I looked at my stereo, and the words SLEEP scrolled across the screen. That spooked me out at first. Then I regained my composure.


On the other hand, my stereo's remote control was lying on my bed, and maybe somehow, I laid on in just right so the sleep function turned on.

What are the odds though?

Out of all of the buttons on my stereo remote, what are the odds that I pushed that one?

Even if my body pressed the button somehow, without my knowledge of it being on my bed, what are the Odds?

I'm not a very spiritual person, but I do believe God exists. Whether it, was God himself, or God via my Guardian Angel, or coincidence, I took it as a sign and I went to bed. I needed that rest, even if it was but a short one.

What do you think?

What do you think I believe?

Have you ever had an experience similar to this one?

I have had many experiences. Good and some scary as hell. I'll tell you about it later, when I'm not at work. SHHHH I ain't posed to be reading this and posed to be working, BUT I needed a mental break!


Here's to me picking players and testing my theory!

I have weird moments like this, too. I've mentioned a friend I haven't spoken to in awhile, only to have that friend call me less than two minutes after I mentioned them. Weird!!

Maybe some things do happen for a reason.

I don't know if it was God, but I don't think I could just go to sleep after seeing it. God talks to us all the time. We just don't bother to listen or rationalize it away with something else that WE can control.

If you recall, I had a type of supernatural experience myself recently.

Jung had some interesting thoughts on synchronicity.

But the question is.....did you go to sleep? ha ha

I have had some interesting experiences myself, but whether it was mere coincidence or supernatural, it seems you got the message you needed just when you needed to hear it... And that sort of thing bears paying attention to... :)
