THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES

Posted on: May 20, 2015

I have been reading Brian Welch’s autobiography Save Me from Myself: How I Found God, Quit Korn, Kicked Drugs, and Lived to Tell My Story for two nights now. Although our roads were different, we had the same feelings, the same realizations, and same reactions to how we found God. What struck me the most was Brian’s account of startling “coincidences” that pushed him to go back to Him. I have experienced similar (albeit different in the sense they’re not replicas of Brian’s) “coincidences” that were sooooo weird and yet–these were messages that I couldn’t dismiss. And whenever I ask Him to tell me something, to answer some difficult questions, He answers back with “coincidences” so stark, so in-your-face that there’s no way you could ignore it. Reading Brian’s words–no flourish, no drama–of how he felt about it at that was comforting to me because now I know that when “coincidences” like those happen, I know it is God who is talking to me and so I must pay attention. I’m still halfway through the book though. If you are a fan of Korn, you should read this to be able to understand why Brian “Head” Welch quit the band at its height. If you are a Christian looking for inspiration and wanting to know how unlikely people can turn around 180 degrees, pick this book up. You’ll be surprised at how God can be persistent and really, really crazy in His own way of letting you know He got your back and you can rest easy forever.

life in business journalism

crazy. exciting. boring to some but hey, you get to understand the world better when you're a business journalist. you learn to be patient with tons of documents, make sense of numbers and charts. all geeky stuff. this is my story, behind the scenes.
