We Live in a Crazy Mixed Up World

crazy mixed up worldLet’s face it! We live in a crazy mixed up world! With trade wars threatening to plummet us into another Great Depression, and children being separated from their parents while trying to enter the country seeking asylum, we simply carry on. Sometimes, the only way we can cope is to ignore the news. While evil acts seek to destroy us as a society, we carry on with our hope placed in Christ. Yes, we live in a crazy mixed up world, but we don’t have to cave in to the crazy. We can rise above it.

When life gets crazy, I enter into some serious prayer time; for I know that some of the messes that we get ourselves into, only God can get us out. I pray for peace (my own and for others), as well as the strength to carry on, and the courage to rise up, when needed, to make a positive difference.

And then there are times when all we need is common sense, a little laughter and a dose of kindness. Use your common sense to determine verifiable truth. (Don’t believe everything you hear without verifying the facts). Keep things in perspective – laughter helps us do that. Refrain from taking yourself too seriously. And lastly, start doling out acts of kindness, as kindness is the best medicine for anyone living in a crazy mixed up world.

Crazy Mixed Up World Video/Song

And to lighten the mood, I found this awesome, upbeat song, titled, Crazy Mixed Up World, by Little Walter, from the 1950’s. This song is over 50 years old. I guess that means that we still live in a crazy mixed up world! I hope it gives you cause to smile and brighten your day – It did so for me. Enjoy!
