“The universe is not laughing at us. It doesn’t even know weÂ exist.”I agree. That’s an excellent way to overcome the nagging appeal to choose pessimism when a situation doesn’t play out the way you hoped it would. Despite what you read online or heard from that one friend of yours (we all have one), the conspiracy theory against you isn’t real. That’s good news. But here’s even better news than that: God knows you exist and He’s with you right now. And He’s not laughing at you either. Here’s the irony: we tend to be the ones who laugh at God, not the other way around. Abraham laughed at God when he learned God’s plan for his life. His wife Sarah laughedÂ about it too. According to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, people laughed at Jesus. When we put this all into context it should cause us to realize how truly unbelievable it is that the Creator of the Universe knows us and cares for us right now. That’s worth becoming an optimist about.
