It's Just OK.




Dear YOU,

We all get broken sometimes.

It's an inevitable fact to admit but I'd like to remind you again that you are never alone and do know that it's just OK.

We've all been there. Although that doesn't mean that we can't be there again, one day, we can shake them off and proudly say, we've all been there.

It's just OK to know that in the midst of brokenness, we realize that there are certain things in life that are beyond the control of our human capacity, but rest in the fact that there is a God who can do all things, no matter how impossible we think they are. To be honest, I've been there. It was in that period of hitting rock bottom that I felt extremely exhausted as the troubles and challenges didn't seem endless. But it was also in that moment of weakness that I realized that all I need is to be completely dependent on a sovereign and mighty God who controls everything, and that He can do what I can't. At first, I was too afraid but God promised that He will be with me and so He did.

Like you, there was also a time when I repeatedly asked Him why He allowed things to happen in my life. Despite all the things I've done for Him, despite of my self-proclaimed faithfulness, I am still bombarded with challenges and trials.  Oblivious to me, God is paying attention to my rantings, and He opened my mind and my heart to a thousand realizations, including the fact that He is making me grow into a person He wanted me to be. God stirred up my circumstances because He doesn't want me to settle into who I was before since He believes that I can still be better, that I can do so much better with the purpose He is calling me for. He was actually using this period of darkness in order for me to submit to Him all my hurts, fears, pride, stubbornness, ignorance, doubts, all the things that hinder us from being whole in His love. Had I not been on these struggles, I would not experience the spiritual growth and healing that I didn't know I ever needed.

In the middle of those overwhelming frustration and disappointments, I heard Him say, "Trust Me. Let Me lead you."

Go ahead, trust Him. Even if seeing the next rays of sunshine seems like taking forever, even if we don't know if there's going to be light at the end of our tunnels, you may take refuge in the idea that God has it all planned up and He knows what lies ahead of us. God is too powerful to maneuver things for our own good, all rooted in His love for us. As always, His plans are always better than the ones we orchestrated in our lives. All because He loves us. And even if we don't get what we initially desire at the end of our struggle, rest assured that we are never the same person as we were before - we become stronger, better, wiser, more resilient, more trusting - which I reckon is a pretty great thing.

In this moment, I hope you'll find joy in the idea that being broken will open your eyes to your weaknesses and strengths, that despite of all the insurmountable challenges, when all is said and done, we can still rise above the circumstances. Sometimes, the journey that we are most afraid to take turns out to be an exciting adventure we ever wanted and needed.

I hope you'll find strength in the fact that God is our refuge and mighty redeemer in these moments of weakness. We may feel that He is silent at times, but rest assured, we are never alone. He is working in us and in all the circumstances around us, stirring things up to our advantage. If He can make miracles happen, He can also make things work out for our own good. Just have faith and trust in His timing as well.

I hope you'll find peace in knowing that our God is merciful and compassionate, and that His grace is enough for us to hurdle over every stumbling block along the way. His interventions are on their way.

I hope you'll find the love that you deserve because our God can provide every single thing you've been looking for. Don't be afraid to leave space for His miracles to happen.

All He requires from us is to simply trust Him. Breathe in, breathe out. It's just OK.

Just never lose faith in Him.



Always praying for you,
YOU, only better

  1. Thank you for this post. It really spoke to me. It is amazing how wrapped up we get in every day problems....but it's reassuring to know that everyone feels that sometimes. And that we are never alone.
