I Never Thought I’d Say This But…

I was chasing some rabbits down some holes and found myself on a little side project of Austin Kleon‘s called “I never thought I’d say this but…” (By the way, Austin is full of neat little side projects.) It’s just a Tumblr with a refresh button, and every time you hit it a new ending to the sentence “I never thought I’d say this but…” gets filled in.

Some are lame, some are sad, and some are really interesting. The one that struck me the most was this:

CaptureHow many times have I never thought I’d say those words?

I forgive you.

There are so many things I never thought I’d say, do, think, read, create.

But I did. I do. And I will.

Because of Him.

I never thought I’d say this but I’m holy.

I never thought I’d say this but my past doesn’t define me.

I never thought I’d say this but I was created on purpose and with a purpose.

What did you never think you’d say?

    I never thought I’d say this but what was meant for evil won’t happen because my God redeems, yes, even me.

      Amen to that…

    I never thought I’d say this, but I’m getting to the point where I only care about his opinion and not the opinions of others.
