A few days ago while I was at work, I received a text from a friend. I was getting ready to leave when she sent me a text asking me what time I got off work. My friend is in need of renting an apartment or house, so I assumed she wanted me to go with her on a house hunting trip. I returned the text and told her I was getting off work at that moment and headed to the parking lot to drive home.
While I was driving, I received another text from her. I had placed my phone on the front seat of my car face up so I could see the text when it came in. When I received the alert, I glanced over at the phone and saw that it was her. I did not want to text and drive, so I left the phone where it was and kept driving home. However, I drove about a half a block when I felt a strong urge to pull over into a small outdoor strip mall. I pulled into the parking lot and parked. When I read the text, she indicated that she would like to look for apartments and she wanted to know if I would go with her. She was also asking where would be a good place for us to meet so that we could go in the same car.
I returned her text and told her the location of the strip mall. In less than a minute, she returned my text with a telephone call. She was laughing and said, “You are not going to believe this. I am at the same mall.” She said she was at the opposite end of the strip mall at the traffic light to the entrance of the mall. She said, “I’ll be there in only a minute or two.”
After hanging up, I laughed to myself. That was not a coincidence. The timing was just too perfect. How could two people, who had no idea where the other was located, end up at the same place at the same time for an unplanned apartment hunting trip? That was nothing but the Lord!
