“Go back to your own country, Rhubarbarian!”

Standard

“Go back to your own country, Rhubarbarian!” -Veggie Tales Duck & the Great Pie War (The Story of Ruth and Naomi)

When is the last time you were truly “odd for God”? I mean really. Not just the standard American version of a Christian, but truly ODD!

Where I wanna be…
Not participating in gossip even if that means I will be limited to simple conversation with…my kids.
Submitting to my husband even when it makes no sense to others.
Discipline my children strictly even if that means being considered a tyrant.
Not be concerned with my appearance even when that means not tanning my pastey legs, not wearing make-up (or wearing it modestly) even when I have pimple outbreaks and regularly splotchy skin, and using modesty when dressing even when it’s out of style, ‘unattractive’, mundane, or ‘homely’.
*Toughest* Not caring if I lose ‘friends’ by speaking the truth over our lives (those who call themselves Christians) about convictions the Bible has led me to; ie Gossip, Submission, Disciplining Children, Modesty, etc.

Where are you in this journey? What “odd” situations has God called you to live in that I have yet to list?
Are you a typical American Dream with a Christian twist or are you Odd for God?
Do you fit in nicely in the Bible belt or are you calling out pharisees along side Jesus in the awkwardness?
Are we worshiping God, the creator, or Religion, the creation?

~~~

Praying I’m being Odd for God. I wanna stick out and be asked to “Go back to {my own country}” since I’m not of this world.
