Coincidence v/s God’s Plan

The title sounds a kinda weird for some, and for others its just thought provoking of whats it all about!

The Time I write this post, its now
8056 days, 20 hours, 51 minutes and 59 seconds or 22 years, 21 days, 20 hours, 51 minutes, 59 seconds
to be precise from the day and time I was born, or when I just entered this “beautiful” world. (If you want to check yours now you could do it here.)

So now to say its been a long time I am here in this world, with a new strange thing happening everyday. A strange news, a strange person I meet, a new technology or invention I hear about, a new smile I get, a new friend I make, a new reason to live life one more day and on the other hand, a new way of crime I hear, a new bomb attack, a murder, a new news to be sad for, a demise of a dear friend or relative, a new topic to fight about, a new reason to make an enemy, a new reason to die for.

It always kept me wondering of, how, why things happen like this.

I spoke to a lot of people about this, shared a piece of my mind, and I got two kinds of answers, either its a “Coincidence” or its “God’s Plan”.

What is Coincidence?
The dictionary defines it as,

co·in·ci·dence [koh-in-si-duhns]
1. a striking occurrence of two or more events at one time apparently by mere chance: Our meeting in Venice was pure coincidence.
2. the condition or fact of coinciding.
3. an instance of this.

Let me share some “coincidence’s” of my birthday with you! Took real hard time in finding it out.
On April 28,

Benito Mussolini, was executed and Alfred Hitchcock Died.
Ferruccio Lamborghini, Italian car manufacturer was born
Gas pipe explodes in South Korea
President Monroe is born
The first civil engineering course is started
French President Charles de Gaulle resigned.
A Russian rocket took off with the first space tourist
James Monroe, 5th President of the United States of America (1817-1825) was born
Argentina, hit by rocketing inflation, runs out of money
Memorial of St Peter Chanel, priest/martyr
Yellow fever vaccine for humans announced
Saddam Hussein, Penelope Cruz, Jessica Alba were born

Now what do you say, I was not born on an ordinary day right. I have some extremely famous events that took place in history on by birthday. So my birth was a mere coincidence, or am I also in a league of creating an major historical event? Should wait and see!

What’s God’s plan?
If I have to explain it from the Bible,

16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:16, New International Version)

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27, New International Version)

14 if my people, who are called by my name,.
(2 Chronicles 7:14, New International Version)

16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me. (Isaiah 49:16, New International Version)

I am a man of belief, and I would say I very much believe in God’s plan than a mere coincidence! Don’t we feel, our life has a meaning, a purpose behind it, why we are born to the parents we have and not to the other parents, which we wish for, why we are financially like this, and not the richest person in the world, why we suffer sometimes, even when we are correct and the other is wrong, why I am here, right now, doing this, when I could’ve been doing something else?

Why some are tall when others short?
Why some are thin when others fat?
When some are fair while others dark?
When some are born alone, when some others as twins and triplets?
Why some have got nice long hair, when others are bald?
Why some are fit and fine, while others are 24*7 not keeping well?
Why some Boss around us, while sometimes we boss around others?

Many questions always ponder us, disturb our minds, create doubts in us, and to be honest sometimes even confuse us, with what is the truth behind all this, what is the mystery behind it.

I will be sharing some of the incidents that took place in my life, in my further posts, which you could access by the below related posts, reading them you decide if I am wrong that my life and everyone’s in this world is God’s plan or a mere co-incidence. 🙂

lot of thinking involved in this..
God’s Plan appears to be coincident, however God has plans completely different for every individual..

I will create atleast an history that I was a good human! Thats something better than nothing right! And a good blogger too! 😉
God’s plan is never a coincident! We feel it that way! Coz our thinking in this media centered world is like that!
