I’m not crazy. But people try to tell me that all the time. Maybe not quite so bluntly but the words come in many forms…
I could never do what you do.
Isn’t it dangerous?
Where will you live?
What do you eat?
Your life sounds so… so… exciting.
Maybe I am crazy but not as crazy as this couple. Retired and in their 70’s this couple followed God’s leading to sell their house and move. Short term mission trips weren’t enough. They heard God’s voice to become more involved. This couple is leaving behind family and comfort to live among the Hakka Chinese who call Panama their home. Being from Florida he knows that retirees generally move south… but to Panama?
Really? You guys are crazy!
Why? Why is this crazy? Isn’t this what we are supposed to do? Be sold out. Give our all. Go where He leads. Tell the world. Share His love. Maybe that means stay right where you are. Maybe it means move miles away from everything that is familiar. Either way as my Grandmother says, the safest, best place for you is in the center of God’s will.
Why do people call you crazy?
