It really is okay

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Matt. 9:36

Processing and responding to all the things in life that confuse us and make us feel helpless might be too much to handle not because we’re weak or incompetent, but because we aren’t designed to handle things all on our own. God is God and we aren’t. We can trust Him and put our confidence in Him even if we still feel confused and helpless about the circumstances. He always has the big picture and always operates for our good.

Lord, I can’t even pretend to understand or have any control but I trust you to make it okay even if it doesn’t look very okay.
