Too many little coincidences...

One of the things I love about God is that he speaks.

This for many of us in a western culture is a little disconcerting. We've learned from a young age to be suspicious of anything we can't physically measure and any interactions of a spiritual nature are placed on the 'suspicious' list.

Some in reaction to this look for spiritual experience to answer everything and can end up leaving sense and the discernment of our minds out of the picture.

I believe there is a 'radical middle' (to coin a Vineyard term) where we can embrace a wonderfully dynamic friendship with a living God who is speaking all of the time - using the mind and body he has given us to discern what is his good, pleasing and perfect will (Rom 12:2).
