I don't believe in coincidence. I believe in synchronicity and blessings. This week, I finished writing my talk on Renewal. One of the quotes in it is from Ezekiel: “I will give you a new heart and place a new sprit within you, taking from your bodies your stony hearts and giving you natural hearts.” I have had that on my mind much this week. On the way home from work tonight, I heard a program where the speaker read the exact same quote over the radio. When I got home, there was an email waiting for me from an online friend who discussed a transformation that had begun in her heart on Christmas Eve and brought her back to church. I'm crying right now. How blessed I am to be the receiver of this message, the witness to the change in someone's heart; and learning more about my own change of heart through the prayer and soul-searching I had to do for my talk. And hopefully, in February, when I give this talk, I'll be the bearer of glad tidings to someone else who may decide to open her heart.
