It’s okay to not be okay. There’s this misconception that because you’re saved & now know the Lord, everything is ALWAYS going to be okay, all the time.. There won’t be any pain, any struggle, any tragedy, or any trial. We’re often programmed to present this mask of perfection and so we look around at all of the other “happy” people & feel like we must be doing something wrong. Everyone just seems so “blessed & highly favored” meanwhile your life seems to be cursed & a total mess.
Yes, life can get messy. We can get messy. When it boils down to it, we’re all these “messy”, unstable, humans with a whole bunch of issues called sin. Than to top it all off, we’re often faced with life situations that just seem to add a whole other pile to our all ready “mess”..
But the “mess” is what makes the beauty of our Savior, Christ Jesus, shine so bright.. The fact that you don’t have to have it all figured out.. The fact that you don’t have to know all the answers.. The fact that you don’t have to have a plan A through F. You can trust the Lord. You can rest. You don’t have to perform for God to be accepted by Him. Believe that He is who He says He is & therefore He will do what He says He will do because of who He is..
You dealing with some stuff? That’s alright. You and the other 5 billion people on this planet. God sees. He never promised to keep us away from storms & trouble. He promised that He will walk with us through them. You are not alone.
