And if only one thing had happened differently...

How tightly do you believe God influences the details of our lives? I've met some people who believe that God has a purpose for every little thing-- a God of the minutiae. As though God is pushing buttons and pulling levers overseeing and conducting all aspects of our lives from disease to parking spots.
Something like this scene from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:



Just what does it mean to "...know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those called according to His purpose." ? 
Are we simply free-will agents living in a world of selfishness and chance or are we micro-managed puppets in the hand of an overachieving deity?
