It's about intention, commitment, and willingness.
I'd be willing to bet that most of us have wished others good luck or have felt we were at times lucky or unlucky ourselves. "Luck"is defined as "success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one's own actions" and as " chance considered as a force that causes good or bad things to happen."
In fact, in English we often use phrases such as "The luck of the draw," "Tough luck," and "As luck would have it," conveying the idea that we are not in control of what happens to us, but that we are buffeted about by the winds of chance in the universe.
We understand that this is nonsense, but how many of us have said such things? It permeates our language, and language posits our deepest cultural beliefs. We know our words have power and that as we speak them they go out into the world to do our will and to create our experiences.
What if we replaced the word luck or lucky with God or Spirit? Would that be a powerful affirmation to keep in circulation in our world? Let's see...
***"As GOD would have it"--sounds much better...it IS much better!
***"With a little bit of SPIRIT"--I like it!
***"With GOD, we'll make it." Yes!
***"You're in GOD!" All right now!
Monitor what you say.
Your words give your power away!
Choose carefully and
You won't need any "good luck" today!
Sweet Spirit, let the words of my mouth an the meditations of my heart be acceptable to you and for our world. AMEN
