No one knows your story except for you. No one knows your heart except for you. Someone may think they know you, but they really don’t. Your life contains lots of puzzle pieces and some days even you don’t know how they fit together. No one truly gets you because no one has lived in your mind except for you.
Today you may be tired of not measuring up. There is always some area of your life that just isn’t enough. You may be growing weary of trying to be all things to all people. Living on a “pretend stage” is wearing you out. But you smile, you get dressed and you go out the door and enter into the world of pretending. You tell everyone you are so busy because everyone that is anyone is busy. When you come back through your door, you are just plain tired because being on stage is terribly exhausting.
So many of us keep trying to become someone who doesn’t exist. We sit in a church pew and hear that we don’t measure up spiritually, or we hear that we need to be a better wife or a better mom, so we are failing emotionally. Worst of all we learn that we should stop eating ice cream at midnight so physically we are also a mess! The bottom line is we are constantly being told that we are not Okay!
DOES ANYONE THINK I’M OKAY?
I have really Good News for you. God thinks you are okay just the way you are. He is the author of your story because He wrote it. He has brought you to this place in time and has directed the script of your entire life. I know that’s hard to grasp, but He believes that you are the most AMAZING CREATION alive!
GOD THINKS I’M OKAY SO THEREFORE I THINK I’M OKAY! DOES ANYONE ELSE’S OPINION MATTER?
I am believing God never makes mistakes, so everything that has happened in the past happened for a purpose. So it’s OKAY! Nothing that transpired in your past is wrong so stop beating yourself up about it. YOU’RE OKAY! We are used to saying we have made mistakes in the past, but nothing is a mistake. It is simply your life.
God created you. Why would He think you’re not Okay? I am reminding myself and you my Friend that His opinion of me is ALL that matters.
ARE YOU READY TO BE OKAY and begin walking down the OKAY PATH with me? Let’s learn together.
Get out a journal and WRITE these words:
I AM OKAY just the WAY I AM!
Nothing more. Nothing else is necessary.
You are OKAY!
