For the One Dealing with a Lot Right Now
For all of the “what ifs” and “what abouts” that feel like endless rooms with no way out, take heart, be still, there is no reason to fear. There is nothing that says you have to be invincible here. You are allowed to rest tonight. You are allowed to look to the Light, that gentle line of Hope that slides in through the blinds, that reminds you: After everything, you are seen and this darkness has nothing on the Mercy morning brings. So it’s okay. Yes really, it’s okay: to take this night by night, and day by day, and to take deep breaths and to rest, even though you do know what will happen yet. It is okay to fall into grace, even before things fall into place. — (Words I sent to the one dealing with a lot right now, who is also worried about a friend who is dealing with other things).
