Good Friday Morning to you!
I am super excited to begin this new day, it is bringing about many great things for me and my crew! I hope the same for you. All of the hard work, sweat and tears of the last 6 months is coming together today! I am so thankful to God for hearing and answering our prayers, He will get all of the glory that this new adventure beings forth! He will get the first fruits and lives will be changed as a result.
As I was reminded last night, today is Friday the 13th,woo, no! I have never really been afraid of this day, black cats, etc. Namely because my mother wouldn’t hear of it while I was growing up. I think it is ridiculous that such a stigma has been put on a number and then what it does to people and their attitudes and mind. I was thinking about this today and looked up why it is considered to be an unlucky number, the number 1 reason is because Judas was the 13th guest at the Lord’s Supper. While this is true and he was a liar, is that any reason that a whole culture be scared of a number and everything associated with it.
God and Jesus knew what Judas was going to do, it was written long before time. God sent Jesus here for us, to pay the ultimate price. That was already destined, no matter which number disciple he was.
This honestly has baffled me for sometime, I know lame. Ha. But, seriously, the first time I realized that people don’t put a 13th floor in high-rise buildings, I was floored. I told Allen I want to build a building and live on the 13th floor, just to show how dumb this myth is. I just read that 80 % of high rises’ don’t have a 13th floor, what!
We are in our 13th year of marriage and we are experiencing our best year yet! It is all in how you make it. A number can’t dictate your future just as no other “thing” can, God can, you can, but a number, NO!
When I was researching this, I read that a lot of business’ struggle because of Friday the 13th. I mean really! People don’t do business because of the day on the calendar, this is too out of control.
It’s not just numbers, some others have things like this that control them, maybe you do. Let it go! Don’t let numbers, superstitions or whatever it may be hold onto you. Your life is determined by you and God if you will let him.
Dear friends, walk in that truth today. Let God dictate your life and future, not a number.
Weirdly, I sometimes find myself always trying to debunk 13 because I don’t get it. There is nothing to get, the other reasons listed for it being unlucky were ridiculous, there is no point that holds any validity.
Whether you let a number dictate your day, an unusual routine, or whatever it is. You can let it go, you can be free! Let God help you, He wants to have a hand in your future. Let Him be God and you be you!
I love that today, a day pinned as unlucky by our world is a new day for my family! A day we didn’t know if we would make it to, it was only a hope and prayer this time last year. We had not even began the process. We have let God have control and He is taking us to amazing places. I hope and pray the same for you today!
God Bless, walk on his truth. Have a blessed Friday, January 13, 2017!
