Last week we didn’t get together, and I’ve missed you! It’s not that God didn’t talk to me, it’s just that I have quite a sick kid, and honestly, I didn’t have the focus to pull it all together and then make sense of it here.
Letting a week go by without writing has brought on disappointment and a bit of guilt. But as I write this with the same blank slate as last week, I keep coming to the same conclusion.
It must be OK not to be OK.
I can’t articulate how I’m feeling or even give a Scripture to explain everything, but I am learning that it’s okay not to have it all together or have all of the answers. As a natural encourager and leader, this idea seems blasphemous, and if I’m honest, it feels a bit weak over here in camp McCarthy, but I know that God is aware of what’s going on and has it all under control.
It has been a great comfort to me to rest in the simple yet profound promise that God loves you, me, and especially Cora more than I could ever imagine. I have been able to find hope in the fact that this season will pass, and through the faith of my family and friends, my Heavenly Father will see this through.
Maybe you need to be reminded that it’s okay to live in the unknown with the promise that our God is bigger than anything you’re going through, or perhaps you feel compelled to join us in prayer for Cora to be healed. Either way, I know we will get through this together.
Until next week…
In His service and at yours!
