Too happy, too forgiving

I find myself feeling a little on the outside of life sometimes.

A little too naive, a little too goofy, a little too happy, a little too forgiving.

Do you feel the same?  

It happens in the comments as they walk out of the room.  
It happens in the emails when they ask me why I'm not calling someone out on mistakes.
It happens when they ask why I am not more angry about decisions at work.

You know what?  We are called.  We are chosen!
We are asked to be more.

We are asked to live according to His rules, not the world's rules...
So be naive!  {trusting}
So be goofy and happy!  {joyful}
So be forgiving!  {forgiven}

I will stand next to you and rejoice!
