It’s okay not to feel okay. These words are just as much for me as they are for anyone else who is struggling right now.
There are a lot of really strong people doing a lot of great and brave things right now, and to be honest it makes me feel so inadequate. I was fighting my own battle before this pandemic got started and I know that I’m not the only one. I don’t want to be the one struggling at this time, but I am.
That’s not easy to admit when people around me are standing sturdy. One thing I’ve been struggling with is finding music that speaks to me. There are a lot of great songs out there, but they’re just making me cry. I can’t relate.
Then there are my fellow upbeat bloggers who are writing some amazingly encouraging things. The things they’re writing are correct, but I’m not there. I’m still struggling. What about you? It’s okay to not be okay. It’s also okay to say that you’re not okay. So this song is for those, like myself, who just aren’t there yet.
“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.”1 Peter 5:10
