Yes, it is true. We often label some events as coincidences or miracles but it is God's hand at work to reassure us or give us joy.
I had been praying for strength to handle a particular situation in my life and I had so many questions running through mind last night. Today, I found all the answers in the poem below, which I found on the Sai Divine Inspirations blog at the link http://saidivineinspirations.blogspot.in/2012/07/faith.html
Are you passing through a testing?
Is your pillow wet with tears?
Do you wonder what the reason.
Why it seems God never hears?
Why it is you have no answer
To your oft-repeated plea.
Why the heaven still is leaden
As you wait on bended knee?
Do you wonder as you suffer.
And if so, why He ignores you,
Fails to hold you in His hand?
Do black doubts creep in, assail you,
Fears without, and fears within,
Till your brave heart almost falters
And gives way to deadly sin?
All God's testing have a purpose---
Some day you will see the light,
All He asks is that you trust Him,
Walk by faith and not by sight,
Just remember---He is near;
He will never, never leave you,
He will always, always hear.
Faithful is He who has promised,
He will never let you fall,
Daily will the strength be given
Strength for each and strength for all.
He will gladly share pain with you,
He will gladly give you peace,
Till your tired and weary body
Find its blessed, glad release.
When the darken veil is lifted,
Then dear heart, you'll understand
Why it is you had to suffer,
Why you could not feel His hand
Giving strength when it was needed,
Giving power and peace within
Giving joy thru tears and trial,
Giving victory over sin.
So till then just keep on trusting,
Thru the sunshine and the rain,
Thru the tears and thru the heart-aches,
Thru the smiles and thru the pain
Knowing that our Father watches,
Knowing daily strength He'll give,
Victory for each passing hour,
This is life, so let us live!
And just as I finished reading this poem and silently thanked Swami, I got another lovely message in my mailbox.
It ran thus:
Sometimes it may feel as if we go through life and nobody notices any of the "good" things we do, only the "bad." It may seem that way, but this is not true.
Why, this very moment someone thought of you, and of a kindness you have done. Your soul may have even tingled a little just now. (It does that when it receives good energy.)
So keep sending out those kindnesses, my friend. You are becoming known for them..."
I felt doubly blessed and thanked Swami for showing me His omniscience and omnipresence.
