Coincidence or the Hand of God?

Have you ever wondered if someone is saved by pure chance? Is it just his or her lucky day? Or is more at play? I believe that people aren’t assisted by mere coincidence. I think the hand of God is at play, putting the pieces in motion to orchestrate miracles.

During my 35 years as a volunteer emergency medical technician with my local first aid and rescue squad, I’ve often witnessed the power of prayer and how God works to put the right people in the right place at the right time. For example, in my latest book Heaven-Sent Miracles and Rescues, I convey how a young woman who gets out of work later than usual sets in motion a dramatic rescue. In another case, a young man stops at a friend’s apartment just in time to alert 911 that she is unconscious and barely breathing due to a heroin overdose. At times, our patients overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to survive.

God’s loving hand doesn’t have to take the form of sensational rescues. It can be more subtle, such as having our squad volunteers be present to pour love on a dying hospice patient during his last hour on earth, or in another instance being available to tuck in a lonely woman grieving the loss of her mother. As a resident of a small town, I’ve been privileged to form strong bonds with some of my patients, and my life is immeasurably richer for it.

The next time you brush something off as just a coincidence, take a few minutes to consider the alternative. Perhaps you are witnessing the loving hand of our Lord at work.


I enjoy reading books by this author because she shares her heart and compassion for others. Each story is different yet has a theme of  rescue and God’s  intervention. The people  she meet are in need of help and some are more urgent than others. I am amazed how the rescuers put their lives in danger to save others. 

As I read the  book I kept thinking that these are unsung heroes. We expect someone to come when we call 911. We don’t think of the bad weather they may have  to travel in, or the daring rescues they do everyday. I liked how neighbors in one story arrived home at just the right time to see fire coming from their neighbors house. 

God is always there in our time of need. He places the right people at the right time to help us. I never want to take for granted the men and women who keep calm while doing life saving actions. Each story in the book is filled with heroism and faith. One story did stand out to me. It involves an elderly man who has on file a DNR. He is on hospice and has an aide that watches over  him daily. When a crisis arrived for the man, 911 was called. There was little the rescue team could do since he had orders in place but what I loved about this story was that the rescue team stayed with him til the end. They held his hand, let him know his family loved him and gave him peace as he slipped away. 

Thank you to all who help those in need with compassion, courage, guidance and love. Your deduction will not go unnoticed. “Well done, thy good and faithful servant.”
