The hypothesis behind this site is the same as the book "Divine Alignment", in which the author proposes that God divinely aligns certain events in our lives to bring about His outcomes. In the timeline below, it can be broadly divided into three categories; Christian Life, Business Life and Tim's Death.
I can see God's guiding hand in all three areas of my life, and this is why I have decided to share my life with you in the hope that you too might be able to see God's guiding hand in your life as well. And if you don't believe in God already, I would hope that this might give you some pause for thought of the possibility that God could be real indeed!
As previously mentioned, the timeline can be divided into three broad areas; Christian Life, Business Life and Tim's Death. I would just like to give you a brief summary of each of these areas to show you the common thread that runs through them and how I believe that God has divinely aligned certain events to bring about His outcomes.
It is my assertion that God has a plan for each of our lives, and He uses certain people, events and decisions to bring about those outcomes. Indeed in the book of Revelation He clearly states that He puts it in people's heart to fulfil his will so that His outcome is fulfilled. - Revelation 17:17
That is not to say that everything that happens on earth is God's will, but he allows our own flawed free will and judgement to be used on many occasions!
From what I have seen in my own life and what I have experienced from other people's lives, it seems that God makes His presence more known during greater times of trial or tragedy, and where the event in a person's life is of more significance to its outcome. I have seen this in my own life and read about it in others.
I would like to show through this timeline how through God's foreknowledge of events you can see a common thread that runs throughout our lives, and only after looking back can you see how God divinely aligned the smallest of details to try and bring about His plan for your life.
