Out of my mind?

If we are "out of our mind," as some say, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you.
~ 2 Corinthians 5:13

I came across this bible verse last week, and it really made me think. The first time I read it, I was like 'What does that mean?' And then I read it again and thought about it more ...... and still had the same question. So I talked about it with my family, we all thought, and we kinda came up with this idea of what the verse might mean:

If you are someone who tries to fit in, be normal, and cool, it's for your own personal reasons. But when you life a life for God, you should want to stand out, be different and set apart from everyone else. So that when people say you are 'out of your mind,' it's because you love God so much and want to just show it.

Another blogger who had a blog that I read a lot recently started a new blog to represent the change in her life and the difference between how she used to be when she first started on blogger. Her new blog is called Fanatical because she said "Because life's too short to be anything but a fanatic. A fanatic for Christ." I love how she put it. It's so true! I totally agree. And so that's what I think that verse means. That we need to be different, a little fanatical, a little out of our mind for Jesus. Because nothing is normal these days.

This is just my interpretation of what it means, please comment with your thoughts and views on this verse! I'd love to hear them! :)

Oh Shakespeare!

Why art thou so confusing?

You write in a language I don't understand.
I read your plays with a translator in hand,
Is it a code? A puzzle? A secret spell?
What is it you're trying to say? Please tell!
I must read your work in English class,
But if I don't get it, how can I pass?
This unit is very complicated,
The words you use are simply outdated.
Was this your main intention?
To cause such incomprehension?
Well if so, your plan was a success.
After learning this unit, my brain's a mess.
But have no fear, I'm able to recover.
At least 'till next year when I discover,
Another one of your plays I must analyze.
But maybe, just maybe, by some surprise,
In time, that I will grow to like thee,
I will just have to wait and see.
You know, a lot can happen in one year
But for now, goodbye Shakespeare!
