Confession: It’s Okay to Not Be Okay

Confession: I’m not okay today . . . and that’s okay. 

Life seems not okay.

My kids are not okay.

Ministry is not where I want it to be. 

Wounds thought to be closed have opened back up.

Discouragement, doubt and fear loom my mind.

Tears wet my face.

Prayer seems futile. I’m not okay. 

And that’s okay. 

Are you not okay?

Cry. Never be afraid to release those tears to Jesus. Not allowing yourself time to grieve will build up inside you and make you sick. This would not be okay.

Tell someone. Not the whole world, but do not allow not being okay to keep you silent. Isolation will only create more guilt, shame, and can open doors for secret sin. Don’t walk this alone. 

Worship. I know. Worshiping when you’re not okay feels like you are crying out to a brick wall that will never talk back. Worshiping takes the focus off of ourselves and places it back on the One who can comfort and heal. 

He is listening. He is waiting to heal, forgive, and comfort. It may just mean Him walking with us through our circumstances verses Him taking all the pain away.


Lord, please help me because I am not okay. Life seems way too complicated, frustrating, and painful. I’m tired of the unknown, tired of feeling not okay. Please walk with me. Comfort me where my wounds seems to open and not shut. In Jesus Name, amen.
