Overview

It’s happened to you.

You received a phone call out of the blue; or you bumped into someone who led you to a new job, a new relationship, or opportunity that totally changed your life. You probably even said, “Wow, what a coincidence I met so and so.” But did you ever stop to ask what caused that person to be right there, at that exact moment, in your path? It was Divine Alignment: the arrangement of coincidences into a pattern of alignment so astonishing they could have come only from a higher source.

In this inspiring new work, SQuire Rushnell shows readers how they can navigate life’s thorniest hurdles, rediscover the deep meaning and impact of personal prayer, and develop the individual conviction and wherewithal it takes to reach their full potential and fulfill their most ambitious dreams by honoring the book’s seven easy-to-follow steps.

In his charmingly avuncular and wonderfully optimistic voice, SQuire shares moving stories from his own and others’ lives to show the awesome strength inherent in what he calls God’s Positioning System, or GPS. All of us, he assures readers, can use our own personal GPS to grow more closely aligned with God to become vastly more effective, successful, and fulfilled in our relationships, careers, and everything we do.

***

DIVINE ALIGNMENT offers a comprehensive approach for living our lives in harmony with God—every minute of every day—offering a whole new paradigm for understanding the mysterious connections between people and events, challenges and solutions.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

At the time, it seems like a coincidence: A chance conversation becomes the beginning of a romance; an unprompted phone call brings the offer of a job; a book casually mentioned at a party sparks a major new direction in your life. According to former ABC television executive SQuire Rushnell, you're probably not just experiencing happenstance; you have become the beneficiary of a GodWink. In this new book, he explains how recognizing the arrangement of coincidences into a divine alignment can enhance your life and deepen your sense of meaning about its purpose. Uplifting advice about life's hidden patterns; now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.

GPS STEP 1

SPEAK WITH THE NAVIGATOR

Let us begin by understanding Divine Alignment.

The Hertz rent-a-car agent advised that any vehicle could be equipped with a GPS navigational device—called “Never Lost.”

I remember thinking: Wouldn’t it be great if we all had GPS; a Global Positioning System . . . making sure we are “never lost”?

That’s when the penny dropped.

We do.

EACH OF US IS BORN WITH A BUILT-IN GPS. GOD’S POSITIONING SYSTEM.

Right from birth, we come equipped with a highly sophisticated navigational package that—through an internal voice of intuition and godwinks—divinely aligns us with people, as well as events, who assist us in reaching our destiny and keep us from losing our way.

Let me expand on that.

When that telephone call that “just happened” to connect you with someone who “coincidentally” placed you on a whole new track, or you bumped into that person who, oh so serendipitously, led you to a life-changing experience—a new job, a relationship, or a geographical move—you were encountering Divine Alignment, guided by your personal GPS.

I suspect you never stopped to ask, “Why was that person at that precise place, at that exact time, in order for me to bump into them?” Or, “Why did that phone call occur at that auspicious moment?”

Does this describe you? Day in and day out you nonchalantly encounter one person after another as you bound from one event to the next, casually accepting life as a series of accidents. Only when you stop to open your mind to the immense possibilities of Divine Alignment do you begin to see the marvelous connections and invisible threads that connect you from one person to another. You begin to understand that your life is not an accident at all. You’re not like a twig randomly floating down a stream to destinations unknown.

    Divine Alignment is a Divine Gift

    I LOVED "Divine Alignment." I am stunned at the quality of this book. It is power packed with spiritual inspiration--unmatched to anything I've ever had the privilege to read. SQuire has woven the stories together so beautifully to provide hope and healing. God flows supernaturally throughout the pages. His ability to communicate with profound conviction, without being preachy, amazes me. This book is truly a divine gift from the Lord, as it goes much deeper than any other in the Godwink series. It challenged me to make some changes in my life that will yield positive results.

    Very Interesting....Reassuring.....Captivating!

    I loved the Godwinks series, and this book extends that philosophy to the next level. SQuire Rushnell has collected many captivating stories of people, many of whom we have heard about in the news, or seen on TV/stage, or even at the concession stand (Auntie Anne-Pretzel Lady), whose lives have been transformed through answered prayers, Divine guidance, and the supernatural magic of Divine Alignment, not by mere coincidence, but by plan. There is a section on near-death experiences and an interesting comparison chart that includes biblical reference to descriptions of heaven/afterlife and the personal descriptions of people he has interviewed. For me, this book provided more evidence to support my own personal experience. I wish I could encourage people to read this and believe, because the peace and comfort that come from this kind of knowledge transforms our lives, raises our awareness, and grows our faith to elevate us to a better human experience.

    This book has opened my eyes and my heart to the understanding of all of those " coincidenses" that happen to all of us. DIVINE ALIGNMENT is written with such clarity that it leaves no questions unanswered. The author's words are powerful and inspiring and you will find yourself remembering things that happened to you, that will now make such simple and wonderful sense. After reading the stories, it is so easy to see how there is only ONE answer. It comes from the DIVINE, who guides our paths. All we need to do is listen, and be aware of what happens in our daily lives.
    SQuire Rushnell is brilliant at offering his insight to all of us in such a softly spoken, inspirational way. I highly recommend this book to anyone of any age. This book will be on my gift giving list for sure!
