Somehow March 9 has become known as Panic Day and Get Over It Day. Since these celebrations seem to be diametrically opposed, I propose that we all begin the day in complete and total panic – running around, screaming, leaning on the horn in traffic (maybe not), tears (not just tears but hysterical, almost hyperventilating sobs), and a bit more screaming just to polish it off. (Don’t tell me that sounds like a normal morning!)
Get Over It Day was originally created by Jeff Goldblatt (also the creator of Rejection Hotline) to help him get over his old girlfriend, but it seems to be a pretty good day to get over anything – a family member’s angry words, the mechanic/lawyer/fill-in-the-blank that cheated you, even the promotion that passed you by. As many others have said before me, it’s time to just let go, and let God.
“You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.”
2 Chronicles 20:17
