You can be alive – or just breathing.
And maybe that’s okay.
There will be days you can’t function. There will be nights you’re too tired to sleep. There will be moments it takes effort to breathe.
There will be people in your life who make you wonder if it’s worth it to keep going. There will be storms that rock the boat so hard you nearly fall over the edge.
There will be days you’re not alive – you’re just breathing.
But that’s okay.
Because you are so, so loved. You are so much stronger than you think. You can withstand the storm. You will make it to the other side.
When I said, “My foot is slipping,” Your love, O Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, Your consolation brought joy to my soul.Psalm 94:18-19
It may not be over today. It may not be over tomorrow. But it will be over. It will get easier to breathe. You will learn to thrive again.
What you’ve walked through will strengthen you. God will bring good from bad (He will never fail to do so). I pray right now that He will surround you with people who will walk alongside you, in every moment – in every failure and every victory.
Today, you may be alive – or just breathing. But you’re not alone.
