What is an Edgy Christian?
An edgy Christian knows that life isn't always rosy. But as long as you've got life, you've got a chance at a new beginning. An edgy Christian knows just how imperfect all humans are and acknowledges it. The edgy Christian also acknowledges that horrible stuff happens in this world and she doesn't always have the perfect answer or bible quote to make people feel better, and is A okay with that.
As an edgy Christian, I free myself and others to have a bad day. To not be fine or 'too blessed to be stressed' when people ask me how I'm feeling. I'm free from always wearing the long skirts or clothes that cover me from head to toe. I am liberated from traditional dress codes for church services because I absolutely believe the word when it says, in Matthew 11:28, Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.' It doesn't say 'I will give you rest if you wear white on first Sunday or your suit, hat and shoes match."
I'm free to pray offensively. Pray to fight and pray for God to step in against every single thing that rises against me. I know that life gets hecka rough. I know that Satan takes no days off and those who shoot darts on his behalf don't always show themselves. I know that we take hard hits to the body and spirit and sometimes we get weak. But you know what? I'm edgy, so I can talk about it. I'm not so fragile that only all that is perfect and sterile, can I hear, or discuss. I'm edgy, rough around my physical and spiritual edges. Evil may prey on me, but I pray on it that much harder. Yep, I'm a Christian, but you can catch these hands!
And check this out! Because I'm edgy, I can take my message to the club, to the barbecue, and the music festival. I will bring it to the stage, the poetry spot and the sip and sing. My flow doesn't change with scenery. This is who and what I am...an edgy Christian!
