Book Overview

Coincidence? Or God? You Decide is a collection of episodes the author’s family and friends experienced.

These stories take place in Mexico as well as the United States. In each story, you will find a fascinating and sometimes life-threatening situation, such as a nine-passenger, six-door Excursion traveling sixty miles an hour on the icy Arkansas River Bridge railing in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Read what happened to the nine fathers in this vehicle. Decide for yourself if God or luck was with them. Then, there is the girl whose foot was mangled in a packing plant accident, or the family who was marvelously saved when the train bridge over the San Rafael River collapsed and the center portion of the train they had been in, fell into the river.

In this book, you will meet a man who gave his home to a poor family; and a little boy who lost his father’s best knife in a lake. His mother prayed, and moments later the boy’s brother caught a fish with the knife in its mouth. Did that just happen? You decide.

In the days before cell phones, see what happened to a fifteen-year-old boy stranded at Love’s Truck Stop in Gallup, New Mexico, 700 miles from home. You will live through a tornado with the Hightower family in Neosho, Missouri, and shiver with Dofia Margarita sitting on her house top during a long night. You will bake with the Children’s Christmas Project and learn how much they earned for the Huruma Orphanage in Kenya, Africa, and shout when a man gives Charlotte $500 for a basket of homemade bread.

While swimming on the Baja California coast, you will struggle with Tim against a strong undercurrent that was dragging him out into the Pacific Ocean. Will Tim see his family again?

Were the persons in danger accidentally saved, or did the power and love of God assist them? The author wants you to decide.

Both blessings and difficulties will swirl around us as we walk through life. Romans 8:28 says, “We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.”

Psalms 139:17 How precious are thy thoughts toward unto me, O God! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand.”
