Someone needs to hear this tonight.

It’s okay to not {KNOW} right now.

I read these words on an Instagram post today from Shauna Niequist:

Did that jump off the page for you like it did me?

And this line, y’all:

It’s okay to live — and even live well — in the uncertain in-between…because when it comes down to it, most of our lives are lived in the in-between. So here’s to trusting that we’ll know later, sometime down the road.

Oh my goodness gracious.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

Because most days are the in-between for me. And this season of in-between seems to be stretching out longer than I would like.

But, that’s OKAY!

It’s okay to not {KNOW} right now.

And Lord, in that moment when You’re finally ready for me to {KNOW} what’s next, it is well with my soul. I’m trusting You all the way down the road that leads me there.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Below you’ll find several conversation starters for you and your people on knowing it’s okay to not know right now.

  1. Oh my goodness!! I’m am right there with you, For sonmany years I thought a baby was the answer to make me happy and I’ve prayed endlessly for one, but God had other plans and now people are confused and ask and make suggestions on what we should do, but I’m in a period of I just don’t know if that’s what I want, if that’s what God wants for me. And you know what that’s ok.

    1. Yes, friend. It is ABSOLUTELY ok. I’m thankful for your friendship and I pray for you often. God knows. Even when we don’t. He does.
