  • Life is a deck of cards. No matter how well you play them, there is always something out there that you had not counted on. Call it luck, call it god, call it whatever you like.

  • Both, I don't ever see anything as out of the question. Luck is simply what happens when something beyond our own actions alter our lives - good or bad... When energies outside of ourselves and our actions create change in our lives... But that doesn't mean it rules our lives, just that it's a factor.

  • No, not really. I mean I will say' ooh that's lucky!' but not really believe it. I believe in the Grace of God, fortunate circumstances and the person working to 'make things happen'

  • I dont believe in luck . But some other people do--
    I believe God is in control of the world and He allows things in our lives to teach us lessons we need to learn.
    At this point- I am dealing w/ something and I think God has allowed it so I can learn not to let others walk all over me , or to learn to trust Him - but for whatever reason- it is in my life and all I can do is to keep on truckin
