Buechner: chance?

Monday, March 6, 2023
The lot is cast into the lap,
    but its every decision is from the LORD.
    —Proverbs 16:33 (NIV)
    The question is not whether the things that happen to you are chance things or God’s things because, of course, they are both at once. There is no chance thing through which God cannot speak—even the walk from the house to the garage that you have walked ten thousand times before, even the moments when you cannot believe that there is a God who speaks at all anywhere. He speaks, I believe, and the words he speaks are incarnate in the flesh and blood of our selves and of our own footsore and sacred journeys.
    ... Frederick Buechner (b. 1926), Listening to Your Life, HarperCollins, 1992, p. 4 (see the book)
    See also Pr. 16:33; Ex. 3:1-5; 1 Kings 19:11-13; Luke 10:30-32; Acts 1:26; Rom. 8:28; Jas. 4:13-15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your purpose fills all things.
