“Relax.  Life will happen and God is good and it will be okay.”

-Tim Gombis

“I can tell by your eyes that you’re not getting any sleep…
And you try to rise above it, but feel you’re sinking in too deep.
Oh, oh I believe, I believe that…

It’s going to be alright.
It’s going to be alright.

I believe you’ll outlive this pain in you heart.
And you’ll gain such a strength from what is tearing you apart.
Oh, oh I believe I believe that…

It’s going to be alright.
It’s going to be alright.

When some time has past us, and the story is retold…
It will mirror the strength and the courage in your soul…
Oh, oh, I believe I believe…

I did not come here to offer you cliches…
I will not pretend to know of all your pain…
Just when you cannot, then I will hold out faith, for you…

It’s going to be alright.
It’s going to be alright.” -Sara Groves

“And the God of ALL GRACE who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while will himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast.” -II Peter 5:10

“I’m trying to work things out.
I’m trying to comprehend.
Am I the chance result…
Of some great accident?
I hear a rhythm call me…
The echo of a grand design.
I spend each night in the backyard…
Staring up at the stars in the sky.

I have another meeting today…
With my new counselor.
My mom will cry and say…
I don’t know what to do with her.
She’s so unresponsive…
I just cannot break through…
She spends all night in the backyard…
Staring up at the stars and the moon.

They have a chart and a graph…
Of my despondency…
They want to chart a path…
For self-recovery.
And want to know what I’m thinking…
What motivates my mood…
To spend all night in the backyard…
Staring up at the stars and the moon.

Maybe this was made for me…
For lying on my back in the middle of a field…
Maybe that’s a selfish thought…
Or maybe there’s a loving God…

Maybe I was made this way…
To think and to reason and to question and to pray…
And I have never prayed a lot…
But maybe there’s a loving God.” -Sara Groves

“One day a man arrived from Baal Shalishah. He brought the man of God twenty loaves of fresh-baked bread from the early harvest, along with a few apples from the orchard. 
Elisha said, “Pass it around to the people to eat.”
His servant said, “For a hundred men? There’s not nearly enough!”
Elisha said, “Just go ahead and do it. God says there’s plenty.”
And sure enough, there was. He passed around what he had—they not only ate, but had leftovers.” II Kings 4:42-44 

Community. Selflessness. Love. Listening. Answering. Hugging. Thankfulness. The Word. The Stephenson, Gandy, Clark, Sheridan-Belschner, Tigulis, Cook, & Gombis families.  Dr. Fagan.  4711 Rookwood. Bentlies. Renewed purpose.  Enough oil in the jar for today…

Maybe it is…

Going to be okay.
