Perhaps I should be a little more kind. Here, maybe this will help you out:
'I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and unforeseen circumstance happeneth to them all.'
'For a man knoweth not his time: As fish are taken in an evil net, and as birds are caught in a snare, so are the sons of men captured at an unexpected moment, when that which is evil falleth, suddenly, upon them.'
- Ecclesiastes 9:11-12
And then there is,
'We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.'
- Romans 8:28
