Life can be crazy, but did you ever think that it can be crazy good? If you’re anything like me, you may feel like you live in Crazy Town. It seems like the world has gotten turned upside down.
I saw one of those funny “demotivational” posters that said “Insanity” at the top and at the bottom, it said: “It’s difficult to comprehend how insane some people can be. Especially when you’re insane.” Today, crazy has become the new norm.
Life has sped up to the point that it’s almost impossible to keep up. There’s constant pressure to do better and upgrade, but the cost keeps rising. As a parent, I often put unfair pressure on my daughters to live up to some unreachable standard. I have lived in the same neighborhood now for 15 years, and I don’t know the stories or even the names of many of my neighbors. I worry too much about what people think about me and trying to please everybody else. There’s too much to do and not enough time to do it all. We live in a world of endless options that can be paralyzing, I think, “I’m sure one day, the crazy will stop and I can get out off this ride.” But honestly, it seems like I’m an example of Living Insanity instead of Living in Sanity.
Is it just me, or can you relate to this too? At the end of the day, I have to stop and ask myself, what’s the reason I’m doing the things that I’m doing. I don’t mind being a little crazy if I’m crazy for Jesus and making a difference for Him.
In this new message series called Crazy Good, we’re going to dive into some of the things that are driving us crazy. In the process, we’ll learn how to deal with the craziness in our lives. It turns out, being crazy isn’t always bad if we’re crazy for the right things.
We find this being taught all through the letter of Paul in the New Testament where they also lived in a crazy culture. Paul told them how to live right-side-up in a mixed-up world and how being crazy isn’t necessarily such a bad thing.
If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit. 2 Corinthians 5:13
I want to invite you to join me on this journey to discover how to get past the crazy to the good things that God wants to bring into your life. You’re invited to join us as we find out how our lives can be Crazy Good!
