“COINcidence?” :) by: Rosabelle Sy

I was about to hop off the jeepney I was riding when I opened my purse and found that I only had a 100-peso bill and a shiny 10 peso coin. Thinking that it might be hard for the driver to give me a change for that bill, I reluctantly handed him my shining 10 peso coin. For a while now, I have been collecting new and shiny 5 and 10 peso coins which I put into my piggy bank. It may be weird but yes, it gives me delight when I receive or get hold of these new coins.  And so, that’s why I was reluctant to let go of my shiny 10 peso coin. I remembered just saying in my mind, “Lord, ilisi ni ug lain nga bag-o, ha?”  So I hopped off the jeep and crossed the street to ride another jeepney. ( I needed to take two rides to go to my destination.) The moment I rode the jeep, I remembered I had a fifty peso bill on my wallet, not my purse, which I handed to the driver for my fare. I was amused and regretting that I should have used that instead of letting go of my shiny 10 peso coin when at the same moment I was handed my change from the 50 peso bill, I was doubly amused and amazed to find my change had a shinier and newer 10 peso coin plus a shiny, golden 5 peso coin! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I carefully kept my two shiny coins in my purse and I had a smile plastered on my face even after I hopped off the jeepney.               coin

A COINcidence? At another time, for others, maybe it is a coincidence. But for me, it is my miracle, my special token.  Giving up my shiny 10 peso coin wasn’t a matter of life and death, I could have lived on happily even without that coin. I would have eventually forgotten about it by today. Yet, when I wished/prayed right after I gave it, God must have been amused with my petty request and decided to surprise me.

And so here are my notes to myself from that incident:

1. God cares for me and all my concerns even to the littlest details of my existence. (1 Peter 5:7)

2. God is my certainty. What would have been my chances of getting back a shiny coin right after? Not many a chance maybe especially that jeepney drivers don’t usually have shiny coins, they have greasy ones. With God though, I am certain that all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)

3. Letting go of what’s precious to you for a worthy cause may just mean you’ll end with something more and more precious. (Isaiah 43:18-19)

4. Everyday is a present waiting to be unfold. And there is a miracle God wants us to experience in every moment. Never let a day go without unfolding that miracle and thanking God for it.

5. Life is not a coincidence. God has a plan and a hopeful future for me. (Jeremiah 29:11)

I say this because I know the plans that I have for you.” This message is from the Lord. “I have good plans for you. I don’t plan to hurt you. I plan to give you hope and a good future.
