it’s ok … 

writing challenge day #28 – the Lords promises 

Today I have a song – a song that has been in my head since yesterday and it is still playing over and over and over again. The part that my head and my heart have been clinging to is – “It’s okay to not be okay … This is a safe place … There is still hope here  … Just let go let His love wrap around you … And hold you close … Get lost in the surrender … Breathe it in until your heart breaks … Then exhale … Exhale!”

Now that’s not exactly how it goes but that’s what’s playing in my head. So that must be what the Lord wants me to hear and understand and cling to. “It’s ok to not be ok.” How often to we let ourself feel that – truly feel? “Just let go let His love wrap around you!” His love! His love is big enough – bigger even to wrap around you – bigger then we can comprehend. “Breathe it in until your heart breaks” – breathe in his love, let it hold you close, remember it’s ok not not be ok – then exhale. Amen to that. So hard yet so good and so worth it. Just exhale. Breathe in His love and find rest … 

So here is the video and the real words friends – it’s an acoustic version of course … And it is from when plumb was at the joy fm which is the radio station I used to listen to when we loved in St. Pete. 

It’s okay to not be okay This is a safe place This is a safe place Don’t be afraid Don’t be ashamed There’s still hope here There’s still hope here

No matter what you’ve done or who you are Everyone is welcome His arms
Just let go let His love wrap around you And hold you close Get lost in the surrender Breathe it in until your heart brebreaks Then exhale Exhale
Spirit come tear down the walls That only You can That only You can Reconcile this heart to Yours Right now God Right now
Just let go let His love wrap around you And hold you close Get lost in the surrender Breathe it in until your heart breaks Then exhale Exhale
Oh God We breathe in your grace We breathe in your grace And exhale Oh God we do not exist for us But to share Your grace and love And exhale
Oh God We breathe in your grace We breathe in your grace And exhaleOh God we do not exist for us But to share Your grace and love And exhale
Just let go let His love wrap around you And hold you close Get lost in the surrender Breathe it in until your heart breaks Then exhale
Exhale Exhale Exhale Exhale
