Are Crazy and Normal Synonyms?

Most of my reading audience, at this point, is probably expecting me to write something profoundly pastoral (or at least practically pastoral). I’m just going to write and be as real as real can be.

Have you ever had one of those crazy days? Better yet, have you had one of those crazy weeks? Even better yet, do you feel like you are running into crazy at every turn?

Crazy has been morphing into the new normal for quite some time. I don’t feel like I have dealt with it so much personally as I have talked with others who have dealt with it. We have had our share of laughs, screams, and various other emotions. Now to the pastoral part: I’m thankful to be able to walk with people through life, and I’m thankful for those who walk with me through it.

A couple of things I want to say about crazy:

  1. Get a good support system of friends, family, and non-toxic people. They will be worth more than all the money in the world.
  2. Choose to not contribute to the craziness. You and I can make wise choices and be low on the drama scale.
  3. If your life is crazy, you can change it. Most importantly, Jesus can make function out of your dysfunction.

Enough about cray-cray! Now I’m going to unwind and eat with my family😀.

      1. Just being a smart alec, Mattthew. I wrote a whole series of posts about just embracing the crazy and “fine, when in Rome do as the Romans.” If you can’t beat’em, join ’em. Who needs “normal” anyway? Hence my avatar was born. 🙂

  1. Its good to share the real day to day stuff, especially the struggles (I should take my own advice lol) Matt, thanks for revealing the humanness in you 😉

    3 excellent points you have raised dude. Thanks for sharing.

    Praying for you right now

    1. Thanks, my friend! A counselor told me several years ago to be real. Those who will exit my life were meant to do so. I have done that. The results were sometimes disheartening. Overall, I found great freedom in being the real me under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.
