“It’s ok not to be ok…”
Been hearing this quote alot lately? This is a very influential quote in pop culture right now. And no, I’m not referring to the Netflix Series. Although the series also does have a lot to do with the quote as well. 🤔
But in whichever way you heard it, this is a very effective statement that is doing the rounds, and it holds so much of truth.
And while it is perfectly ok, not to be ok. The truth is that a mental state of being ‘not ok’ should never be allowed to be a permanent mental state.
While we do recognise the need for space and time to heal and recover from painful and traumatic situations. God ultimately says that we need to get up, dust ourselves off and get on with it.
Wallowing in self pity and not finding resolutions to every difficult situation we face is ultimately a recipe for disaster…
Let me remind you that the Bible says, that you are more than a conqueror. Which means that with Christ, you will be able get over whatever it is you are going through, but… you will not only be able to get over it but you will get through this season with a overwhelming victory.
Being more than a conqueror means that what ever you are going through, no matter how difficult, is only going to make you stronger. Make you wiser and make you more compassionate towards others who are also going through the same thing.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.Romans 8:37 NIV
