No Luck, part 2

Because I don’t believe in luck or fortuity or superstition, I decided that it was important for me to cut it out of my vocabulary. I’m not trying to make doctorine out of this or say that you should do it. I feel that God convicted me about it so I am responding.

If you are interested in cutting superstitious language out of your speech, here are some replacements I’ve come up with. If you have other suggestions, I’d love to hear them in the comment section below.

lucky = blessed
luckily = thankfully
fortunately = thankfully
unfortunately = sadly
any luck? = any success?
good luck! = blessings! or God bless you!
cross your fingers = pray or hope
not in the cards = just don’t be pessimistic all together … or at least say God is in control, God knows what he’s doing
I have bad luck = I feel stuck in a rut
fingers crossed = hopeful

    I’m with you on this!!! I am usually alert not to use luck on my vocabulary, funny that I never realized the roots of the words “fortunately” and “unfortunately”… One of those lost in translation mistakes, in Portuguese we would say “happily” and “”unhappily””. It is good to pay attention to what comes out of our mouths!!!
