Standing on the Shoulder of God + Albert Einstein’s Quote

A song sung during church service keeps ringing in my head.
This song itself was inspired by Pastor Kong’s personal devotion.
When the investigation began 2 years ago, Pastor Kong went through such a deep depression.
This is one of the verses which reflected much of his heart cry.

“From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”
-Psalm 61:2-

Yes, he felt so overwhelmed by the stress.
So, he cried out to God to bring his faith to higher rock, higher than his circumstance.

I feel overwhelmed. Really overwhelmed with my research work.
Somehow, the experimental results can be so unpredictable. Also, I am kinda running out of time.
I feel the Lord speaking to me through this song to keep believing in Him.
Here is part of the lyrics which touches me the most as it represents my cry for help:

When I’m overwhelmed
Your love reaches me

Give me hope to stand
Bring me to the highest Rock

Beneath my feet was once a valley
But now I stand
On the shoulders of my God


“Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.”
-Albert Einstein-

Firstly, I am aware Albert Einstein is not a Christian.
He believed in “god”, but not God of the Bible.
Still, I find his statement pretty interesting.

Pastor Kong once mentioned, “I don’t believe in co-incidence. I believe in God-incidence.”
To me, it is not mere coincidence. It is more like a miracle.
I can say this because I have been moving from one coincidence to another coincidence.
I remember when I was studying for exams, somehow the material I studied came out as exam questions.
When I joined in competition in high school days, somehow God showed me many unique ways to come out as a champion.
But more importantly as I do research now, I need a lot of luck, a lot of miracles.
Things can frequently go wrong in the lab: imperfect sample, machine faulty or insufficient technical skills.
But somehow, I was able to pick up important details in the midst of anxiety and worry.

Coincidence? Maybe no.
It is a miracle, a God-incidence.
