Ann Voskamp: How To Be Okay When Things Are Not Okay

Great words of encouragement from Ann Voskamp for when things are not okay in your life. Read the whole article here

So you can look up at the calendar today and exhale: “It’s okay to feel bone tired — you have One who gives His bone and His body for you and beckoned:  Come Rest.”“It’s okay to feel bone tired — you have One who gives His bone and His body for you and beckoned:  Come Rest.”

It’s okay to feel bone tired — you have One who gives His bone and His body for you and beckoned:  Come Rest. 

It’s okay to feel disillusioned — you have One who destroys cheap illusions of perfection and offers you His. 

It’s okay to feel done — you have One who listens to the last nail be driven in and proclaims all the hellish things finished. 

It’s okay to feel battered and bruised — you have One who storms your battles, takes back everything that needs a comeback, and proves His side won. 

It’s okay to feel a bit like a fool — you have One who proves that real love always makes anyone the wisest fool who gives more, lives more, forgives more, because love defies logic, because love is the self-giving, cruciform foolishness that is the ultimate wisdom of the universe.

It’s okay to feel behind — you have One who is the Head and the Author and the Maker and the Finisher and the Carrier and the Warrior and nothing is over until He carries you over the finish line.
