a little bit of Crazy

Some days I feel crazy.
I know some days I look crazy.
I have been told over the last 7 years that I am crazy.
I do crazy things.
I have crazy ideas
I make crazy irrational and illogical decisions based on nothing but what I'm told.
I trust one voice and try my best to listen to it.
I am ridiculously horrible at being a "good steward" and saving my money,
Because I am crazy, and have this uncontrollable urge to give it all away.
I cry like a crazy woman over things that make no sense, and suffer from heart ache for people I don't even know.
I uprooted my family and we've been on a crazy journey that placed us 4 hours from everything we've ever known
I only ever read one book....over and over and over and over and over and over again
Music is food to me. I eat it all the time. and it fills me up!
I take a stand against things that other people don't have a problem with.
I am crazy enough to think that we are no alone here on Planet Earth.
It makes me sad when crazy people start to get un-crazy. I think its called complacent...
I have this crazy desire to make more people crazy
I trust in something that is so BIG it surrounds me, yet so small, it fits in my heart,
So old it has all the answers, yet so new that I can forever keep learning,
Something that can both precede me AND follow me.
I am crazy enough to let love control me.

I hope your Crazy too.

"If it seems that we are crazy, it is to bring Glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit. Whatever we do, it is because Christ's love controls us."
-2 corinthians 5:13 and 14-

  2. wild abandonment. you could call it crazy. but better to be crazy for Jesus that normal for the world.

  3. I'm like is food to me too. Can't explain it.

  4. Crazy? Or just really passionate about all the right things?

  5. Lovely post and it is true that most of us crazy in many ways although we don't like to declare we are crazy and pretend to be saner than others. Your frank and forthright declaration is very exceptional.

    Best wishes,

  6. oh sister. i'm so glad you're my friend. you drive me crazy too lol. in a good way :) i love that last line, about letting love control you. beautiful write melissa. xo

  7. Craziest of the crazies. Or so I've been told. Politely, and not so. With affection, and with not much. God calls me beloved.
