Yesterday afternoon as I was walking back to my classroom after finishing an IEP meeting after school, I look down on the floor because something caught my eye. It was a brand new shiny penny!
As a child, I remember the rhyme, find a penny, pick it up. All day long, you’ll have good luck. Unfortunately, my school day was over, but I still had the rest of the afternoon and evening to look forward to. And if you wanted to be technical about it, I guess you could say, I did have a lucky day. My principal happened to observe me for my final observation that day, and although the electricity went out throughout the entire school in the middle of it, and my Smartboard lost power, and I had to regroup, I still went with the flow, and I think we pulled it off. In my IEP meeting, the parents actually showed up, so I guess you could say luck was in my favor.
I choose to believe it was God. By the way, I did pick up the penny, and stuck it in my drawer as a remembrance.
Do I believe in luck? Not hardly. Do I believe in faith? Most certainly! Do I choose to follow the assumption that dropped coins are from deceased loved ones as a way of contacting us? Not exactly! But if I was going to pick luck or messages from heaven above, I would choose the latter.
Let’s all choose faith over luck, penny or no penny. Let’s have faith in God’s favor. Not chance.
Only God can change our circumstances.
Do pennies really fall from heaven? I don’t think so. But, I do know every good and perfect gift does come from above. That’s God’s word. You can take that, and your pennies, to the bank!
Every good and perfect gift is from above. Coming down from the father of lights who does not change like shifting shadows. James1:17
