Are you superstitious?

Tonight (Wednesday the 22nd of June) the Tampa Bay Lightning are playing game four in the Stanley Cup Finals. Tim and I were at the last home game, and they won, so we should go again to bring them luck. And wear the same outfit. Oh, and eat the same food pregame. Right? Surely they will win if we go. Oh, but wait, I’ve been to home games before and they lost. Oh well. So much for the superstitious thought that they only win when we attend.

NHL does a wonderful job at being very Patriotic! God bless the USA!

A black cat darts across the road while you are driving. Do you stop and say a prayer, ignore and keep going in your desired direction, or turn completely around because that cat brings bad luck?

The tall ladder is leaning against the wall. I need to walk either under it or around it. What should I do?

There are so many superstitious things that people do around the world. Check these out from

  • In Japan they say you should avoid sleeping with your head to the north. Yet, in Africa you should avoid sleeping with your head to the west.
  • In Turkey, an itchy right hand means you’ll come into some money but an itch on your left means you’ll lose money.
  • Stepping in dog poop is actually considered good luck in France if you do it with your left foot. It’s only bad luck if you step with your right foot.
  • Syria banned Yo-Yos in 1933 over fear that they would cause a drought.

Well, regardless if I go to the game, wear the same outfit, and eat the same food, it won’t determine if the Bolts win tonight’s game. Just like any superstition really doesn’t change a thing.

Seeing friends at the games are always fun!

Being superstitious is defined as a belief or way of behaving that is based on fear of the unknown and faith in magic or luck; a belief that certain events or things will bring good or bad luck. (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

First of all, God is not a god of fear. 

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 

Secondly, my faith is in Jesus Christ, not magic or luck, which God is NOT a fan of (look up a plethora of bible verses on that subject).

There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 

As a Christian, I hope you will think long and hard about following superstitious behavior.

Be sure you are not led away by the teaching of those who have nothing worth saying and only plan to deceive you. That teaching is not from Christ. It is only human tradition and comes from the powers that influence this world. I say this because all of God lives in Christ fully, even in his life on earth. And because you belong to Christ you are complete, having everything you need. Christ is ruler over every other power and authority. Colossians 2:8-10 

The Lord Tells us in Exodus 20:5, Don’t worship or serve idols of any kind, because I, the Lord, am your God. I hate my people worshiping other gods. People who sin against me become my enemies, and I will punish them. And I will punish their children, their grandchildren, and even their great-grandchildren.

It’s brought into conversation to “cross your fingers” when wishing someone luck or “knock on wood” to ensure your luck, but be confident that your words and deeds display ultimate faith and belief in the Lord our God. 

It’s not about luck or good fortune, it’s about love and faith in Jesus Christ.

Go Bolts!

Will they make it a three-peat? Go Lightning!

Blessings to all,


After note:  Bolts lost. I guess I should have gone and worn the same clothes. Lol. Just kidding. It’s been a great ride, TB Lightning.
