Because I don’t think it is. India is a place that’s been on my heart for months, since August and maybe before then. I have no clue as to why, but India suddenly began to fill my heart and mind and prayers. Within a few weeks, prayers for India turned into prayers about how I was going to serve India.
I knew God wanted me there for a short term mission trip. I wasn’t sure when, I wasn’t sure how. But I was going to go. So the search began for an organization or group or something that would let me go.
I’m okay with being labeled as “crazy.” Maybe it is crazy, if examined with the wrong perspective. But this is where God wants me, and I’m resting in that.
Besides, Jesus' family even thought He was crazy at one point. In fact, most God-followers are known for doing things that aren’t quite normal: people leaving everything they’ve ever known to follow God, giving up dreams, finding better things waiting then what they left behind. It’s crazy – but it’s no less true. Jesus said if we’re really His followers, we’ll do what He commands.
And at the moment, that command is taking me to India.
Want to join me in the crazy?
