Where do I begin? It’s been a very full 15 days since the last blog entry. The Bible verse I have been memorizing these past 15 days really got me through, especially on days where I felt I could not go on. The fatigue has been the most challenging part to deal with. Will it ever end? Will I ever get over it? There have been many days where I asked these questions. And then came the reply: “Rely on the LORD! Be strong and confident! Rely on the LORD!” (Psalm 27:14 NET) What a boost!
Plus, I just finished reading the book “WEIRD, because normal isn’t working” by Craig Groeschel. What an amazing book! I highly recommend it. What got my attention of course was the title. How could I not read a Christian book that’s called WEIRD. I had to. I have been called weird so many times in my life, and for so many reasons… I just had to hear what this guy had to say about weird. And wow, did this book take me by surprise. But a good one. After reading this book, I do want to be weird. And I don’t want to be afraid of what people will think about me. In this book a quote that really got me was: for normal people God is a part of their life; for weird people, God is their life. And that of course spoke to me tremendously. I had to ask myself over and over again: am I normal or weird? In this case I do want to be weird. Because I don’t just want to have a compartment for God and all spiritual things. I want God to be my life! Yes! If I have to be weird for that, than so be it!
And so on that note, I will be memorizing Psalm 142:15 (New Living Translation):
“Then I pray to you, LORD. I say, ‘You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.'”
