You said: "nothing happens unless God wants it to"
Bible says (NIV translation): "all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

You clearly are seeing something that I'm not. How does "all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be" translate into "nothing happens unless God wants it to". If you read the surrounding verses (about how the author was known to God even in the womb, etc), it sounds like its saying something more like "you already knew everything that would happen to me before I was even born."

This is not really the appropriate place to nitpick, but I didn't want anyone to be misguided by your distorted assumptions about what the Bible says. Sorry to everybody else for the off-topic posts.
