You have probably heard the term Godwinks but you may or may not find in your dictionary. Squire Russell who first used the term in one of his books touched on something most of us experience but may not realize it.
Take a moment to really examine your daily life. I don’t mean births, graduations and that kind of thing. I’m talking about those little unexplained moments or periods of time when things appear or happen that can’t be explained through general logic.
Haven’t you ever lost something only to have it reappear in a place where you would have never put it? A check arrives in the mail from an unfamiliar source at a time when you are about to be evicted. Your plans to accept a new job falls through and yet an offer from a source you never considered appears. These are those little miracles referred to as Godwinks.
You don’t have to have a Lazarus event to be reminded that our loving God is always around us. He shows us in these little Godwinks that he provides all things if we just pay attention and acknowledge them.
I have seen a lot of Godwinks in my lifetime. The next time you question how something happened….you may have just been Godwinked!
Have a great day and watch for those Godwinks!
