~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 50-West Palm Beach, Florida:
How many times have you heard someone announce that today was the luckiest day of my life or you are the luckiest person I have ever met? When you find money or you miss hitting someone by inches driving on the interstate, when someone stops unexpectedly in front of you, we may think that luck was the reason behind that extraordinary occurrence. These thoughts are actually the furthest from the truth, but understandable due to the fact we do not “see” God in spite of Him being right in front of us.
The fact of the matter is that there is no such thing as luck. Sure, we know that something unexpected happened that came from an outside source to save us or helped us in our greatest moment of need in ways we physically cannot explain. However, we must come to the realization that the external source that caused that amazing event to occur in our life was God intervening. We have a have a Father in Heaven that is constantly looking out for us and also blessing us in ways we are not even aware of.
Having a lucky rabbits foot or wearing green if you are Irish, are only superstitions that do not have merit. So, how do we give God the credit for blessing us so profoundly? The first thing to do is recognize the presence of God in our lives. The second thing to do is to speak the prayers that we were taught by Jesus, especially thanking the Lord for all of the work he is doing in our lives. Lastly, we need to appreciate all of the good things occurring around us, realize that God is driving the train rather than luck, and that every event has a purpose with an unexpected outcome that we may or may not be aware of at this particular moment.
