Has the world gone crazy? Or is it just me? I’ve been asking myself this a few times today over the last few years. In all actuality, I’ve come to the realization that I’m mad like the rest of the world (crazy mad not angry mad).
A World Gone Crazy: Fear:
There is an abnormal amount of fear that’s pervasive in this world. I’ve never felt this kind of fear, and I know it can’t be healthy. Just by turning on the TV, you can see it.
In our culture, we used to turn on comedy shows and briefly escape our lives, but now they mirror it. and we feel trapped.
Learn to not live in fear
You need to learn how to not live in fear. Fear is something that can paralyze or propel you. What it does is your choice. I used to be paralyzed by fear, and in some ways I still am. However, if you want to be free, you’ll have to stop listening to the fear and start listening to your heart. I know God isn’t a huge topic nowadays, but I’d say listen to him as well. You’ll be surprised about what you hear.
We are not built to bear these burdens, and whether you’re scared of Covid-19, terrified of what’s happening at the border, or worried about the loss of civil liberties.
None of it matters if you’re frozen in place and can’t live your life.
- Close Your Eyes
- Take A Deep Breath
- And Ask Yourself What Is In Your Power?
The world has gone crazy because people feel powerless. It’s why a group of people wearing masks will yell at others not wearing masks in a store.
People fear, and they start to form clicks, or tribes. They start to believe in the people around them that believe the same, and at the same time, they shun the unbelievers.
This is what living in fear will bring you into.
Your Fears May Be Legitimate:
You might have legitimate fears. Maybe you have a preexisting condition, or you lost a close family member. (I’m really sorry for that)This world has had a rough go the last few years.
While the fear is okay, you can’t let it rule your life.
Letting fear run your life is bringing yourself down to base emotions, it’s similar to flying into a rage. Your emotions have to be balanced by logic, otherwise, you’re making the same decisions as an animal.
A World Gone Crazy: Politics:
…I told myself that I wouldn’t touch this topic with a 10-foot pole…Oh well, here I go.
In America, we have the left, the right, and the Americans. Most of us want to be left alone, live our lives and do our jobs. We all lean one way or the other, but everything is so polarized right now.
I constantly hear things like:
Silence is Violence & It’s part of the Constitution.
1st off, being silent is not violence. In fact, this reminds me of a Mark Twain quote:
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.Mark Twain
2nd of all, I like to ask people if they’ve ever read the Constitution when they say that. Sometimes I’ll even pull my copy of it from my back pocket and ask them to show me.
My point is this, We Need To Stop Being So Militant About Our Beliefs. There’s a lot more of us who get along than those who don’t.
A World Gone Crazy: Despair
Despair is a scary topic, but it’s one that we can all unite behind. Suicides have skyrocketed in the last two years. So has domestic violence and violent crime.
I believe all of this stems from fear, and fear leads to division, and division leads to despair.
Despair comes at the point when you’ve given up. It’s a point you reach when everything is futile, and you’ve lost all hope.
In essence, despair is a form of death.
I honestly think this is how we’ve reached this point. When we despair we believe the world is beyond redemption and things will only get worse.
A World Gone Crazy: Jesus
I know Jesus isn’t the topic most people would like me to bring up here. However, in a world gone crazy, the answer is always Jesus.
Jesus is the way, and he didn’t say that so he could be prideful, or so Christians could make fun of other religions. He said that because the universe we live in is imploding, and he’s come to rescue us with the only safe passage away.
When he says he’s the way, he’s also saying nobody else is coming.
If you’re in despair, ask him right now to help you. I’m believing you’ll be surprised and I know a miracle is going to happen.
God loves you and is looking for an opportunity to show you. When you see it, make sure you connect with him.
