Apakah Anda penah memikirkan seseorang yang tidak pernah terlintas di benak Anda selama bertahun-tahun lalu tiba-tiba bertemu dengannya? Apakah itu benar-benar hanya kebetulan? Rushnell menjelaskan teorinya bahwa peristiwa kebetulan adalah caraNya untuk menekankan keberadaanNya dalam kehidupan kita sehari-hari.

Great book that changed my life and opened my eyes to the signs and the Winks that God sent me every day ,it only takes awareness to follow the path that unfold your destiny
God will put situations,people ,books and everything needed to awaken you to which direction you should go in life hence God winks at everyone
I was so unaware of the winks of God before and sometimes totally resisted them ,being such a control freak ,I always tried to control the outcome ,Now I knew better and trying to be

This is re-read for me, and was recommended by a 97-yr old in my prayer group. What we think of as co-incidence may in fact be a bigger plan than we imagine. When we look at the chance events in our lives, we begin to see that perhaps things weren't really so haphazard. I recall the timing when my FIL was losing his battle with cancer, and our son "happened" to stop in when the ambulance crew needed help to navigate the walkway to the door of their home. I no longer look at things quite the same ...more

Anyone who believes things happen for a reason may enjoy this book. Great stories and reminders about life’s way of working out while also making you think there’s more going on than meets the eye. The author shares plenty of personal accounts of coincidences that are too amazing to be passed off as mere chance. Because of his background in radio and television, he also shares stories from celebrities and random show business happenings that make for good reading as well.
I liked this book a lot,

Even though I have long been fascinated by coincidences and interested in the causes (if any) behind them, I was hoping for a little more from this book. A discussion on the possible sources of coincidences could be riveting, but this book was not so much an exploration of contrasting, thought-provoking ideas as it was a fluffy piece written in the style of Chicken Soup for the Soul. That's perfectly fine, I suppose, if that's what you're looking for. Most of the stories were uplifting enough, b ...more

I agreed with 80% of this book. The other 20 I really disagree with and don't see as God Winks at all. In order for something to be from God, it needs to be consistent with his character and who he says he is and what he says he does. The majority of this book fits that.

I may give this about a 2-1/2. Why can't we give half stars?

Anyway, I enjoyed the stories in this book, and I agree with the idea that there really is no such thing as a coincidence. When things seems to just fall into place, we can be pretty sure that it's God 'winking' or letting us know that He's there and cares about what is going on in our lives.

What bothered me about this book was the seeming indecision on the part of the author. Was he talking about God? Or 'the universe'? Some unnamed 'h

This book came to me at a point that was not a coincidence but God's perfect timing. I love it and it still speaks to me.

This book is all about divine coincidence. Squire Rushnell explores how coincidences are surprising, and how we can all acknowledge and interpret the meaningful connections that come from these coincidences.

These coincidences and connections occur throughout our lives, but many times we fail to consider their impact and appreciate their full meaning. Rushnell proposes that readers explore these coincidences, and understand that their source is divine. GOD Winks" is the author's term for inciden

What a pleasure When GOD Winks: How the Power of Coincidence Guides Your Life Squire Rushnell is to read. Celebrities are example references in many of the stories within this story. Real life events are the bulk of the book while personal tests and considerations comprise the rest. By taking the few, fun, self-exploring exercises, this author is fully aware how God's wink blesses his life. This profound anonymous quote is one of this book's wonderful life lessons, "We make a living by what we g ...more

This wasn't a book I would usually read, but I'm kind of glad that I did. It was a cute little read. I really enjoyed all the little stories about other people who received God winks. While reading, I found a lot of spelling errors. It was a little unsettling. There were a lot of stories that I could relate to and could understand along with the people who actually lived them. It was a cute read even though I'm not sure that I would read it again.

Demented fanatical rubbish. A poor mans "the secret". If bad things happen to you it is your fault because you did not wish hard enough" juvenile at best. God helps people to buy ponds they want but allows the holocaust. My fave bi,t the publication of a fiction book where a ship named Titan sinks after hitting an iceberg. Later the titanic hits and iceberg - how could people have missed the god winks!

Boring old match up between JFK and Lincoln assassinations appear here -all coincidence - did y

This is a quick read and is an entertaining book with lots of stories, cute, unique and awe inspiring, of how "coincidences" have had lasting impacts. I believe, like I think that the author does, that there are no coincidences and that everything is part of God's plan. However, Rushnell very much tiptoes around the belief in a sovereign all powerful God who has His hand on our lives. Instead he favors a lesser idea of, a "cosmic force" or the "powers of the universe".

I loved this book. It lets us know we are not alone. It tells of how God is nudging us, looking out for us. Very inspirational. What we think are coincidences really aren't. There is a reason why those so called coincidences are in our lives. Sometimes we don't realize why they show up in our lives until later upon reflection. A very good, easy to read book.

A dear friend gifted me this book for Christmas with the note that it reminded her of me. That note was a gift as well as this book.

It's a quick, positive and inspirational read. I've always referred to "God Winks" as "It's a God thing!" Same meaning. I truly believe it and will be recommending this book to others. There are NO coincidences in this world! Happy New Year!

LOVED!!! I have always believed in these God winks and it was quite refreshing to listen to this on audio. I was on my way to give blood as I finished this book and I thought "I haven't had a God wink in awhile." Not 10 mins later, God winked. He let me know even though I was terribly sad (Chuck's anniversary), that he was there. It was incredible.

My mom was reading this, which I find interesting, and suggested it for me knowing that we're facing a lot in life right now with family, work, etc. I'm not about to claim it was intriguing or earth shattering book. I also don't find the "exercises" in the book to be helpful or even mildly interesting. And I found myself aggravated by the bits about Barbara's Streisand and GMA... ugh, really?!! But still the premise is a fun one, that "coincidence" may not be coincidence and may be a part of a l ...more

I love the concept of this book but I found my mind wandering through some parts. Over all I do believe it holds important wisdom between the pages. If you like interactive books, (specifically religious self help books that ask you to journal), you would enjoy When God Winks.
Laurie
A light, fun book about the "coincidences" that really are encouragements from God that we're on the right path. I liked the stories, but I skipped over the exercises he suggested after each chapter. A quick read, not deep.

Cute book about coincidences in our lives. How to be aware of them! Also a rundown of past coincidences of famous people, including Lincoln vs. Kennedy. Very Interesting!!

Loved this book. Really made me think about some things in a different way. Since reading this book, I've been much more aware of Godwinks and how they are in your life every day, either big or small.

Wonderful book. "godwink: A personal signal or message directly from God, sometimes as an answer to prayer, and often mislabeled as coincidence." Great stories regarding "godwinks"

Excellent Book

I heard about this book literally at the same time I was thinking of my father who died 14 years ago. I was thinking about him and Voila there is Squire on TV. I had never even heard of him

Confirms the thought I've always had about coincidences being God's way of telling you you're on the right path.

Admittedly, I am not the most religious person, but after coming back from a retreat and having this book recommended, I decided to try it. This book has truly opened my eyes to the world. I now think of things differently and am finding a reason for why things happen. Looking for 'God winks' has made me an overall happier person, when I am stressed and something good happens, I know it is a sign. This book was very eye opening and I loved it, I loved the real life examples. In my life God winks ...more

I liked it more than liked it - but I didn't really like it, so, 3-1/2 stars, not meaning that in a bad way, I was looking for something like this but to dig deeper on the subject, but like the book suggests, the book was a Wink for me in the right direction.

Just an FYI - or maybe TMI - but I've had a tumultuous 5 years, crazy, insane, spiritually evolving, soul moving, life changing, painful, extremely extremely painful 5 years, and sometimes I thought I saw some "God Winks"...and if I didn't
