Friday the 13th – Blessings Counter!

In the Western World, Friday the 13th is claimed to be one of the most UN-luckiest days of the year.  Many people, in our society, walk griped with fear on this day.  I can recall watching the movie series ‘Friday the 13th’, as a young teen.  For many years, the superstition of the day that occurred on the 13th day of the month would flood my mind with overwhelmingly negative and insecure thoughts.  I did not have any logical or scientific explanation of my fear; other than being scared half to death of a masked man jumping out at me in the woods.

As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned a technique to counteract this superstition and choose to believe what’s ‘reality’ more than ‘fiction’.  An idea that’s helped me over the years is to: Create a mental or physical blessing counter!  I love doing this as it pulls my fantasy/ fictional state to a logical, truth, real/fact frame of mind.  Truly leads my mind in the direction of positive focused thinking.  “Being positive or negative are habits of thoughts that have a very strong influence on life”-unknown; we can certainly chose to be either.

The song that I’ve learned in Sunday School, as a little tot, sticks with me today and is a comfort…

Count your blessings…name them one by one…count your many blessings see what God has done!

Will you walk in fear this Friday?
