Sometimes it's OK...

Sometimes, it's ok...

to not go to bed before 10pm

to spend the evening at Starbucks...again 

to listen to Christmas music before Halloween

that your favorite jewelry consist of charity bands

to wear the same casual outfit you wore yesterday #noshame 

to listen to a song five times in a row-  "Mercy" By Matt Redman 

to miss HOME so much you ache- especially Seattle during football season! 

to have such big dreams you can not fathom how in the world they will ever be accomplished  

to look at apartments WAY above your price range just to see what it would be like to live in a penthouse

You know what else?
It is OK not to know what tomorrow will bring
It is OK not to know where you will be in ten years 
It is OK not to know who you will marry or your "life calling" 

It is OK 
You know why?

Because He does

The one who created you, designed you and directing you
You may not know where
He does
You may not understand why
He does

In fact, you don't need to know 
He designed us not to look into the future
He designed us to live intimately with Him today
In trust that He has tomorrow
And the next day 
and forever planned out

I think God knows that if He told me where I was going, I would try and beat Him there
And I would

Instead He passes by me just long enough 
And I get a glance of where He is going 
I don't see the whole path, I barely see Him somedays
But I feel Him 

That quick brush against my hand deep in my soul, softly directing me
That is all I need to trust Him

We don't know what our future holds, 
but we know Who holds our future
And that brings me peace and gives me hope
I am learning every day down in Arizona that it is OK not to know and to just trust 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him,
and He will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6 


  1. I wish I could just post that 2 hands in a goal symbol emoji on here because amen just amen!
