Then it just happens to dawn on you that you have absolutely no idea what it is you want to say. You are so excited to spill and share....what?!?
Thats me. The crazy lady about to run out on some un-expecting victim walking by just to release this crazy exciting feeling and tell them all about...what exactly.
I have absolutely no clue.
All I know is it's because of this pushy BFF of mine. Seriously, you know the one...brutally honest. Can't hide from them even when you try to pull the wool over your own eyes.
No dear friends. You can't even stick your fingers in your ears and "lalalalalalala" this voice out.
Jesus is just not taking no for an answer. He's that friend that is going to tell you things about yourself you don't want to know with a BIG "WHOMP THERE IT IS."
He is going to fill you with that crazy love of His and make you NEED to look like a fool.
I can picture it now...some un-expecting soul walking to the grocery store to get a gallon of milk when some lunatic comes running out of their house..."Excuse me, Excuse me...can I talk to you?"
"Ugh sure, but I am on my way to the store."
"That's OK it will just take a second"
"Well...here's the thing...I am not sure what I am supposed to tell you, but Jesus told me to come talk to you."
But What if...
That person was going to get hit by a car and God wanted you to intervene.
They were going to the store to buy some cat food so when they went home to kill themselves the cat would have something to eat until some found it. (yes, I know I said MILK but bare with me)
They just needed to talk to someone.
God wanted to show them that people do crazy things in the name of His love.
God just has a really good sense of humor.
You just don't know.
See, that is how he fixes you. Making you go out of the norms of this world because He is not of this world and neither are you.
You have to look crazy for Jesus so you can stay humble.
You have to look crazy for Jesus to be His witness.
You have to look crazy for Jesus to grow in Jesus.
I was recently introduced to this amazing video through this even more amazing speaker Lori Dixon. If you don't know her...you should. Anyway, she showed this video at the beginning of a conference and it changed the way I view crazy. Watch it. Now.
That's right people. Regardless of what the world or country music star Miranda Lambert tells you, you don't want to "Hide your crazy." Jesus uses crazy to show His love and if you are listening and obeying his prompts to do crazy on His terms, humble growth is unavoidable and you can stand tall before THE Judge.
My prayer for you today is that you listen to the Holy Spirits callings and do something crazy for Jesus.
