I’m not ok

I’m not ok.

The awareness of that simple fact lies at the heart of the gospel. Unless we operate with that simple realisation we don’t exist as an effective body. Unless that is a part of our being, we can never be in right relationship with God.

I’m not ok.

I love the lines from the Ginny Owens song

Cause I’m not who I was when I took my first step
And I’m clinging to the promise You’re not through with me yet

The question remains then: why do I spend so much of my existence trying to convince others that I am ok? Why do I wear the mask that says “Chris is fine”?

Just so you all know out there, I’m not ok.

It doesn’t mean I’m going through a grey moment…
It doesn’t mean that anything extraordinary is wrong…
It is just a little bit of honesty.
