coincidence?..i think not

i had such an interesting experience today! (besides the practical..ya, b/c those are always fun...*sarcasm!). as i got dressed this morning, i was somewhat conscience of the clothes i was wearing - which is a good thing - but i had worn this shirt before and though i knew it was special i didn't think anything would come of it today! this shirt i speak of has one of my favourite Bible verses on it:
Romans 12:2 "and do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."
well as i was doing laundry during my break (after the prviously mentioned practical) some one behind me states "I love your shirt!" and as i proceed to turn around asks "do you know the Lord?" ..."yes!" i answer :) :)
i love being part of something so much bigger than me! where i can be so excited to meet a complete stranger!! We ended up talking about eternity, and church, and school and the mission field of living our lives for the glory of God within our classes, and how tough that can be, he talked about his wife, and how the verse on my back was something that he was actually studying right now. We shared prayer requests and than stated again just how encouraging it was to meet someone that you knew you were spending eternity with!! ....and this was all in about 5 mins! how fun!
anyway i was so encouraged!! when i got dressed early this morning, i had no idea that there was something so significant planned in something as insignifocant as a piece of cloth! And yet i have NO idea the power held within the words from God! Some could say this was all a coincidence - but the fact that i was not on my regular laundry schedual, and he had 'randomly' come downstairs for something....i don't know, it kind of shows that there was some-ONE else planning our meeting.
anyway, i was super excited and may me realize even more that i am not alone out there!
Have a fantastic night!! :)

Romans 12:1 "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship."
