You Are Going to Be Okay
“You are going to be okay.”
Those were the words whispered to me by an older gentleman a few weeks ago at church.
I was making my way back to my seat after going up for prayer. As has happened many times in church, I couldn’t contain the tears that morning. It wasn’t just that I couldn’t contain them, but I had entered a complete uncontrollable sobbing state. You know, the kind of crying that should only happen at home?
When he whispered that to me, I knew he thought I was crying about a baby, but I wasn’t.
Regardless, it stuck.
I am going to be okay and it’s also okay that I have days that I am not okay. I shared on the topic of not being okay earlier this year and it still sticks with me today. As much as I try to always be positive and seek faith over fear, some days are just really bad, and it took me awhile to realize it’s okay to not be okay.
But guess what. Even on the days you are not okay, you are going to be okay.
Are you following?
Whatever you are going through, you will be okay! Loss of a loved one? You are going to be okay. Infertility? You are going to be okay. Divorce? You are going to be okay. Eviction from your home? You are going to be okay.
Even if you are not okay today, you are going to be okay! You will get through whatever you are going through. You won’t do it alone, because God will give you just the amount of strength and grace to survive. But, you will survive. And, you will be okay.
