It's ok to not be ok...but be with Jesus.

It’s ok to not be ok. 

This is a popular statement that people in our society likes to say to one another. It’s a beautiful and liberating statement considering everyone feels the pressure to look like they have everything together and that they aren’t struggling. 

It IS ok to not be ok. It is NORMAL to not be ok. Heck, I would even go so far to say that if you’re always doing ok, something is wrong. Because as followers of Christ, we shouldn’t be ok all the time. We shouldn’t have everything under control. If we were able to have everything together, we wouldn’t need Jesus (Isaiah 41:13). That is where this post is headed…..

It’s ok to not be ok ...but don’t be alone while you’re not ok. Be with Jesus. Go in the presence of the Lord when you’re not ok.

What happens when you screw up again? What happens when you keep messing up, you are now in a deep hole of guilt, shame, and regret? How is that cutesy grace saying providing you the peace you need?

Trusting and Waiting with God

I asked a question to my followers on Instagram the other day, “What season/theme does the Lord have you in right now?” You know what response I got most?

Overall, it was, “trusting” “patience” “having to have faith” and “resting in Him.”

I think all these things go hand in hand with one another. What does trusting God look like? What does it look like to live a life that is in complete dependency on the Lord?

Your Calling is not Scary.

Our calling.

What a big topic, right? Kind of seems like a really big, overwhelming topic to think about, right?

I find that when I sit down and I ask people what they believe their calling is, what their dreams are, or anything along those lines that they get overwhelmed and a little anxious.

You know why I think that is?

I think we respond with fear or stress in those situations because we have put the pressure and the weight of the call on us. We have somehow made our calling about us.
