Does music help sooth your soul when you’re not ok? It does for me, especially when it’s music that connects me with God spiritually in a way that it encourages my faith and refocuses me on what really matters. The song below is one of those that does this.

Key things to think about when listening to this song:

  • You will have times in life when you’re not ok- we all do- but it’s knowing that you can have peace even in those times that will help you cope and see hope in the situation.The song below is one of hope when you’re not ok.

 

  • The song below also helps you remember that it’s ok when you’re not ok so you don’t have to suck it up and pull it together. You aren’t a super hero and there’s no expectation of you to be.When things are sad, it’s ok to be sad. When things are overwhelming, it’s ok to be overwhelmed. Studies show that the perception of people showing emotion is that they are honest not weak. So it’s time to shed those lies about emotion and embrace that it’s okay when you’re not ok.

Here is a song and video I love that puts these thoughts all together: Maybe it’s ok by We are Messengers

Here’s the lyrics to follow along with:

If I didn’t know what it hurt like to be broken
Then how would I know what it feels like to be whole
If I didn’t know what it cost like to be rejected
Then I wouldn’t know that Your love coming home
Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok
‘Cause the One who holds the world is holding onto me
Maybe it’s all right if I’m not all right
‘Cause the One who holds the stars is holding my whole life
If I didn’t know what it look like to be dirty
Then I wouldn’t know what it feels like to be clean
And if all of my shame hadn’t drove me to hide in the shadows
Then I wouldn’t know the beauty of being free
Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok
‘Cause the One who holds the world is holding onto me
Maybe it’s all right if I’m not all right
‘Cause the One who holds the stars is holding my whole life
Father, let Your kingdom come, let Your will be done
Here in my heart as in Heaven
Father, let Your kingdom come, let Your will be done
Here in my heart as in Heaven, oh!
Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok’
Cause the One who holds the world is holding onto me
Maybe it’s all right if I’m not all right
‘Cause the One who holds the stars is holding my whole life
Now I’m alive in You
The best that I deserved
Now I’m alive and I can see You in everything
Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok
Did you get the message? There are times when it’s ok when you’re not ok! Don’t fight it, but look for the growth and connection with Jesus because of it.
Do you struggle with not being ok?
