Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll


Sacred Serendipity
by Charles R. Swindoll

I will once again deal marvelously 
with this people, wondrously marvelous.
Isaiah 29:14

Seren-dip-ity--the dip of the serene into the common responsibilities of life. 

Serendipity occurs when something beautiful breaks into the monotonous and the mundane. A serendipitous life is marked by "surprisability" and spontaneity. When we lose our capacity for either, we settle into life's ruts. We expect little, and we're seldom disappointed. 

Though I have walked with God for several decades, I must confess I still find much about Him incomprehensible and mysterious. But this much I know: He delights in surprising us. He dots our pilgrimage from earth to heaven with amazing serendipities. . . .

Your situation may be as hot and barren as a desert or as forlorn and meaningless as a wasteland. . . . But all I ask is that you . . . be on the lookout. God may very well be planning a serendipity in your life.
