"Have you seen the signs?"



     He gives you a sign.  So do not say: "it is clearly just a coincidence."  He gives you a sign.  So do not say: "it is a chance."  He gives you a sign.  So do not say: "I was lucky."  He gives you a sign.  So you do not say: "I had a bad luck."  He gives you a sign.  So do not say: "why did it have to happen to me?" 
     Accept the fact that this is your life, and as every life, it is dotted with signs.   
     He gives you a sign to make you realize His presence, to make you realize how close He is to you, to make you feel how He cares for you. 
     If you do not treat the signs that way, you won't understand anything out of your life.
