Friend can I just encourage you tonight?
If you are not ok, it’s ok.
You are enough.
Your situation does not define you.
Sometimes we just need to admit that we are not ok.
Once again a song is speaking to me.
If I didn’t know what it hurt like to be broken
Then how would I know what it feels like to be whole?
If I didn’t know what it cuts like to be rejected,
Then I wouldn’t know the joy of coming home.
Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok
Cause the one who holds the world is holding onto me
Maybe it’s alright if I’m not alright
Cause the one who holds the stars is holding my whole life*
If you are really ok right now, if you are in a sweet spot, be on the lookout for friends that are not.
We are masters of faking it.
Fake it till you make it is ok sometimes.
But sometimes you need to let your guard down & admit that you are not ok.
There is no shame in that.
Stop comparing yourself & things in your life with others.
God has a specific plan for you. What you are going through is a part of it.
Even when we make bad choices & consequences come, God will still use it for our good.
I don’t know how He works it out, but He does.
Sometimes bad things happen because we live in an imperfect world. Through no fault of your own you could be struggling with big things.
It’s going to be ok.
God is faithful.
He will make a way.
Just hold on until you are ok.
Then hold on to someone else who needs to know it’s going to be ok.
You are loved.
