So I decided to go to bible study with my mom the other day – I’ll say it was refreshing. Something that the pastor spoke about really stood out to me.
He was discussing things that tend to happen when we can’t fall asleep at night. Y’know how you sometimes you just can’t fall asleep? And you spend the entire time trying to fall asleep thinking. You’re laying there probably reviewing all the bad things that happened in the day or that week. His point ended up being more about keeping your thoughts clean, Godly, etc. but naturally my brain went on a bit of a tangent.
I think we sit and constantly go over all bad things that happen to us because we can’t believe they happened to *US*. Even if we know we’re a piece of shit, when bad things happen to us (lose a dollar, miss the bus, receive a diagnosis, w.e.) we just cannot believe it. As if only good things should happen to us – because y’know that’s how the world works right? *rolls eyes*
On the other hand though, we almost never question when good things happen to us. Again, even if we know we’re a piece of shit, when something good happens to us we don’t think twice about it. We think we deserve finding that 20 on the floor. We think we deserve finding great parking.
Don’t get me wrong, I may not think bad things should happen to me, but I don’t think bad things should happen to anybody [unless you’re a piece of shit]. But why *not* you? Why do you only deserve good things? Why do “they” only deserve bad things? Why?
Just my thoughts. Life is funny.
