Growing up, I would hear people say that if you talked to yourself, you were crazy. Then I heard that was not true, it was if you answer yourself then you were considered crazy. Upon further research of the word, I found that “crazy”, means silly, strange or outlandish. Based on the definition, just call me crazy because God has given me some silly, strange and outlandish assignments that I have had to talk myself through.
I have found that I talk to myself a lot lately. Not only do I talk to myself, but I answer myself back. The conversation may go a little something like this.
Me: Tiffiney you have never done this before; you don’t know what you are doing. What if you fail? What if no one supports you? What if it doesn’t go as planned?
Me: God, now you said that if a man lacks wisdom, knowledge and understanding I could ask, and you would give it to me. God, you said that you would never leave me nor forsake me. Lord, you said that you would supply all my needs according to your riches in glory. Lord, you said that I can ask anything in your name, and you would give it to me. God, you said that all things work together for the good of them that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose, not some but ALL. Lord, you said fear not for I am with you. Lord, you said that you did not give me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. Lord, you said that I was the head and not the tail, the lender and not the borrower, above and not beneath.
Me: Lord, you sure have promised me a lot. Your reputation is on the line. So, what are you going to do? I’ve done all that I can do, now I’m waiting on you to see this thing through. I’m finding that I talk myself through a lot of situations and circumstances because I’m entering unchartered territory. I have to encourage myself, when there is no one else there to do so. I remind myself of what the Word of God says when negative thoughts enter my mind. When you are stepping out on faith and a prayer you have no other choice but to talk to God and yourself because no one else understands the assignment. So, the next time talk to yourself and answer yourself, just know that everything is just fine. You are working that CRAZY Faith. You are just crazy enough to believe everything God said is true and He will fulfill His promises to you. So, come on
