The idea of 31 consecutive Amazing Days is an appealing one.
But it might be a bit unrealistic.
Can each day out of 31 have at least one amazing moment? Yes.
But one amazing moment may not be enough to turn a whole day amazing.
Sometimes things happen that are completely out of our control, and people are often quick to throw around reminders that though we can’t control our circumstances, we can control our attitude towards those circumstances, and that God has a plan for everything.
But that doesn’t change the reality that sometimes things happen that, for lack of a better word, suck. To pretend they do something other than suck does everyone a disservice.
Acknowledging that something sucks doesn’t mean we fail to remember that good things can come from bad, or that there is a greater plan at work in and through it all. It’s calling a spade a spade, acknowledging that there are things we do not understand and that usher in a new (or continuing) wave of uncertainty.
We are never immune to uncertainty.
We should also never allow ourselves to become completely immune to the possibility of awesome, even in uncertainty. Even if only for a moment.
Til next time…
