It's OK to NOT BE OK... But it's also OK to BE HAPPY...


It's OK to NOT BE OK... But it's also OK to BE HAPPY...

There's a season for things not being ok... and that's ok... but it is important to recognize when that season has come to an end... Sometimes we take what was intended for a moment in time and create cycles and habits of misery and sadness... depression and anxiety... we become so accustomed to living and functioning in those states, that we don't remember what it feels like to not feel that way... to not be that way... We continue carrying the burdens, not letting go, walking with our heads down, long after the problems are gone, the issues have been resolved, and the reasons no longer exist... we refuse to tap into the feeling of 'relief' and keep selling ourselves the story of 'grief'...

I've found myself over the last couple of weeks feeling light... dwelling in an awareness and state where things just seem to be alright... if I dare say it, I'm Happy... and no, it's not because everything is perfect, and not because everything is going my way, not because I have everything I want either...its not because I have all the answers, nor is it because I feel like I'm doing everything right... But it's ok... and I know that everything is going to be ok...

And the part that disappoints me, about myself, is that sometimes I feel like being Happy is scary... like, this can't be for real... something bad is going to happen... Oh God, what next!!!???

But then I remember Who I am... and Whose I am... I've been delivered for a reason... it's ok to move into a new season...

I find myself smiling when I'm sitting in spaces all by myself... I'm doing things I never really saw myself doing... I'm accomplishing goals that have been on my Prayer List for almost 10 years...

I'm alive... I'm here... I'm real ---- that was the first step ---- being real with myself...and learning to be real with others... that was the key to moving from under the dark clouds and making a choice to stand under the Sun...

And the joy in it all is that I am not doing it alone... I feel His presence everyday, in everything... When I'm right, He cheers me on... and when I'm wrong, He corrects me... He's calmed my fears, soothed my restlessness, comforted my pain, healed my wounds, mended my heart, dried my tears, and simply makes me smile...

I went a roundabout way to get where I am now... uughhhh!!! Through dark alleys, gutters, broken places... felt like going to hell and back at times... But it was what I needed to understand where I am now, and where I am going...

So so so so so so so so grateful and thankful to God... Humbled by the gift of His Son... He chose me...

He used what could have killed me, to make me stronger... and where I was dead, He brought me back to life...

THANK YOU JESUS... THANK YOU LORD... 👐👐👐

And the journey doesn't stop there... further to go... higher to go... deeper to go... wider to go... and even if means another 10 years of roundabouts, I'll go...

If Jesus goes with me, I'll go... anywhere... and everywhere...
