You, Me, Creeps, & Weirdos

I used to have a problem…

You may sit there if you know me very well and say…Used to? Pretty sure you have a problem…actually many problems NOW!?!?!

To those of you who would say that…I say…

Shaddup!

In love of course.

I used to, and to some degree still do struggle, with low self-esteem. I am a far cry from who I used to be, but the video on here used to be my favorite song because I always felt that it depicted me…it is still such an amazing song.

Radiohead-Creep



Now I am not bashing this song in any way, I actually still think this song is one of my top 5 favorite songs…so descriptive and yet simple…wonderful.

I was sitting and sifting through some of the songs I used to listen to avidly and this was one of them, as was listening I pulled up the lyrics. You know as much as I felt I fit in with the lyrics before… and can still relate to them, I realized something…

While I still feel like a “creep”…

I am special.

I am not going all froo-froo on you, and to the outside world I may not be very special at all…but I don’t have a longing to feel special because I feel like I already am (some would argue that I am special in more ways than one). Not only do I have a great family surrounding me, I have friends, I have people who don’t know me all that well that would go to bat for me if I needed them to and of course to top it all off…

I have my Creator.

The song poses the question, “What the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here!” I guess I know what I am doing here…and I do belong here…even when I don’t want to be here, I know why I am here. I may not want to do what I am supposed to do, but I know what I am supposed to be doing.

I DO belong HERE!

I don’t want to go on and on…but just realize something…

We may be creeps…we may be weirdos…but we are accepted.

Maybe not by the people we come across everyday…but we are accepted…and if you call yourself a “Christian” and you can’t accept a “Creep” or a “Weirdo” … I pity you, because you are missing out on some of the most fantastic people God has ever made, and I am sure that you will find that out soon enough, don’t forget the whole He died for ALL…you, me, creeps, and weirdo’s.

Blah, blah, blah…

So accepted is the “creep” simpleMan.

P.S. So are you, my “creepy” “weirdo” friends!
