If the word "coincide" means to fit together perfectly, as in the way the center of two concentric circles coincide -- doesn't it then make sense that the word "coincidence" is not about randomness, but more suggesting an order to things, a perfect fitting together as in a design? And so, using that definition, I am thankful that when I am struggling with something, I always seem to find myself reading a book, or watching a show, or hearing a sermon that coincidentally deals with that exact thing. It never ceases to amaze me.
