Have you ever felt like you were nuts? Like you just don’t fit, or maybe everyone else doesn’t fit?
That’s because you’re crazy. Just as crazy as everyone else, but a different flavor, and crazy still.
We all have this thing inside of us that causes us to think, move, and be different than everyone else. We were made that way. And so there are some things that just feel natural to us. There are some things that feel so natural to us that we wonder how in the world all these other people don’t have the same feelings/insights/thoughts/wants/desires/passions/et cetera. What might feel like common sense to you is hard to grasp for another.
And that’s because you’re crazy.
You were made with very specific gifts, talents, and abilities inside of you. You think a fingerprint is unique? Try the whole human being. Now that’s unique.
And in all that uniqueness; we still have a desire to be a part of a bigger something-or-other. There is a want and a need to belong…a yearning to be connected.
And that’s because you’re crazy. To the world’s standards at least. Because people are afraid. People don’t often like to admit that they’ve submitted to mediocrity. It’s easy to say no to community and no to your destiny when you’ve already said yes to the status quo.
But maybe you are crazy. Maybe you’re just crazy enough to swim upstream and find the deeper waters. Maybe you’re just crazy enough to say yes to the greatness you’ve been called to. Maybe you’re just crazy enough to trust as if you couldn’t get hurt. Maybe you’re just crazy enough to be a fool for glory rather than straight-laced for the crowd.
Maybe you’re just crazy enough to take off your mask and be the person you’ve always known you were supposed to be.
