My last few blog entries were a little on the heavy side. I have things I want to share, things I want to dig into, things I’m in the process of working through, but I felt like maybe I needed a break from the deeper things.
Today’s post will be quite simple and short. I hope it brings you a smile and a chuckle or two.
I bring you a personal philosophy that started around the time I was say….10 years old? I remember having a sleepover with friends. We had stayed up too late and were therefore rather giggly and silly. Through the silliness this little statement was born:
“It’s good to be weird, because if you’re not weird that means you’re normal, and if you’re normal that’s just weird.”
It’s normal to be weird and weird to be normal. In God’s creativity He designed us to each be our own unique selves. So, is there actually such a thing as weird? Such a thing as normal?
He gave us each our own appearance. No two fingerprints are alike. We have our own strengths and weaknesses. The Bible says God alone decides what gifts each person should have. (1 Corinthians 12:11)
Embrace that thing that makes you a little “weird” today. It is part of what makes you uniquely you. He has made you that way for a reason. If we were all the same, life would be pretty boring wouldn’t it?
Let’s be weird together. That’s the normal way, after all.
“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does work in all of us.” (1 Corinthians 12:4-6; NLT)
