Divine Appointments – A Triolet

I’m at a conference with some great colleagues and it’s been a long busy day. There was a dinner planned with a bunch of people, some of whom I know well and some I don’t know at all. I was thinking about skipping it and just going to get a quick bite with one friend and then back to my room early. But my friend and I decided to go after all. I’m so glad I did because I had a great time and had a wonderful conversation with someone I otherwise might not have gotten to know so well. I discovered that she is a Christian and we talked about this blog, divine appointments, and many other things. That conversation inspired this poem.

Divine Appointments

Divine appointments God does orchestrate
Chance meetings are never coincidence
He designs the tapestry while we wait
Divine appointments God does orchestrate

We plead to know why but He is not late
Of this crazy life we try to make sense
Divine appointments God does orchestrate
Chance meetings are never coincidence

Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6 (NLT)

    • Deb, I’m glad you liked this poem. I’ve had several more divine appointments since, and several more blog post ideas, but I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had time to share more. Peace, Linda
